I love just hanging out near this lighthouse. The area is gorgeous and lively. You can get amazing photos of this lighthouse pretty much anytime of the day. There are certain hours the lighthouse is open to the public and you can climb to the top. Nothing special but a beautiful view.

But I love this lighthouse. Built on the same spot the Romans had a lighthouse it's an updated piece of history. The point itself is a perfect place, albeit windy sometimes, to just stare out over the water. Watch the sun set and just be in the moment.

Though historically important, it's not worth much of a visit - unless you really like lighthouses. Coming from North Carolina, we have seen plenty.

This lights house has lots of history, one of the tallest in Europe so they say. A must visit if you are in Chipiona.

it is beautiful lighthouse and beach especially at night. It was interesting experience to have a night walk in the center of Chipiona and see evening life of local people and tourists like us.

Fresh sit down tapas bar with lots of unusual and tapas de Author. Great wine selection and everything can be ordered by the tapa. Probably best in Chipiona currently. Look for the solomillo a la pimienta and tell me you haven't mopped up the sauce with some bread!!

Chipiona is a great destination where most of the people from Sevilla go to relax on some of their small town beaches. Chipiona has a great small town atmosphere with great small restaurants and shops. If you want to relax, this is a great place!
