Do you want to learn Spanish in a beautiful place close to the beach? Then… come to GADIR!
Our school is located just a short walk from the beach and our students can not only enjoy our spanish courses but also the beaches of Cádiz.
Cádiz is famous for its sandy beaches and nice weather (Cádiz enjoys an average of 320 sunny days per year) with warm temperatures even in winter, due to its close proximity to Africa, making this an ideal location in which to learn Spanish and spend a few weeks at any time of year.
Cádiz is home to some of Spain’s most beautiful beaches. In recent years, due to its wonderful long sandy beaches and its good weather, Cádiz has grown in popularity as a holiday destination for Spaniards. Cadiz is also very popular with surfers, as it is one of the few places in Spain to offer great weather and high waves.
Cádiz has many beautiful beaches like “La playa de Santa María del Mar”, “La playa de la Caleta”, “La playa de la Victoria” and “Playa de Cortadura”, among others.
La Playa de la Caleta is the best-loved beach of Cádiz. It has always been in Carnival songs, due to its unequalled beauty and its proximity to the Barrio de la Viña. It is the beach of the Old City, situated between two castles, San Sebastian and Santa Catalina. It is around four hundred meters long and thirty meters wide at low tide. La Caleta and the boulevard show a lot of resemblance to parts of Havana, the capital city of Cuba, like the malecon. Therefore it served as the set for several of the Cuban scenes in the beginning of the James Bond movie “Die Another Day”.
La Playa de la Victoria, in the newer part of Cádiz, is the beach most visited by tourists and natives of Cádiz. It is about three kilometers long, and it has an average width of fifty meters of sand. The moderate swell and the absence of rocks allow family bathing. It is separated from the city by an avenue; on the landward side of the avenue, there are many shops and restaurants.
La Playa de Santa María del Mar is a small beach in Cádiz, close to GADIR. It features excellent views of the old district of Cádiz.
Others beaches are Torregorda, Cortadura and El Chato…. we love our beaches!!
