Always looking to the sea, Isla Cristina is one of those towns that has grown at the dawn of the fishing and tourism industry. Becoming over the years an ideal place for the family, it maintains the perfect balance between the tourist and the local, where fish and seafood become its most important artery.
Isla Cristina keeps small treasures that make it a place we recommend to visit any time of the year, although spring and summer are especially beautiful. The beaches are spectacular, kilometer after kilometer the fine golden sand delights the most demanding beach seekers.
“La Lonja” or fish market founded in 1756 is one of the most special places in Isla Cristina, not in vain its port ranks first in activity in Andalusia and is the second in importance in Spain. The visit is worth it, from the hustle and bustle of the buyers, sometimes thunderous, to the layout of the fish market, as if it were a soccer field.. And to finish, nothing better than tasting some fresh local prawns in the bars of the port next to the lonja.
