Best hotels in Punta Umbria
Punta Umbria is small coastal town of around 15,000 situated in the autonomous community of Andalusia and within driving distance to the southern border with Portugal. The Punta part of its name means point, referencing the shape of the town and the surrounding area of natural beauty, as it appears to literally point out into the sea. Located on the lesser-known Costa de la Luz, Spanish tourists have been coming here in droves since the 1920s. European and international tourists are beginning to catch up on the buzz, and now Punta Umbria hotels line its beach, offering vacationers a stunning view of the Atlantic Ocean. There are plenty of activities for you to enjoy here, and with Hotels.com taking care of the hotel side of things, you'll be free to enjoy all that Punta Umbria has to offer.
What's Punta Umbria Like?
There are many Punta Umbria hotels to choose from, and fortunately, the town isn't over-saturated like other coastal areas. This shouldn't imply that its popularity is any less; quite the contrary. In the summer months, the streets are heaving and we recommended that you book accommodation way in advance if you wish to visit during the high season. Hotels here offer a range of facilities, from free Wi-Fi, outdoor pools, onsite restaurants, children's entertainment, multi-lingual staff, with many hotels being just a few minutes from the beachfront. The 2.5-mile-long beach is 150ft wide and has been awarded Blue Flag status for its spotlessness. This is an excellent spot to practise wind- and kite surfing. Or how about the Paraje Natural de las Marismas del Odiel, a protected wetland reserve close to Punta Umbria, which makes for a great day trip, especially in the spring breeding season.
Tips for Getting Along with Locals in Punta Umbria
Like the rest of Spain, the people of Punta Umbria have their own local festivals and traditions dotted throughout the year. In April, the popular Festival de la Chirla y la Coquina, otherwise known as the clam festival, makes for a good opportunity to sample these tasty and locally caught specialties and are served up in restaurants all over town. In July, the town commemorates its patron saint, the Virgin del Carmen. This is an important, local tradition dating back many years, where a statue of the saint is carried through the town's streets down to the beach, and sent on her way out to sea in a decorated fishing boat.
