Playa de Cuesta Maneli has fine, golden sand that runs for several kilometres. Situated within the confines of Doñana Natural Park, around 35 kilometres southeast of Huelva, the beach has very few facilities on offer, with a sole chiringuito (with toilets) open in the summer for refreshments.

The location of Playa de Cuesta Maneli within the protected area of Doñana means vistas to and from the beach are largely unspoilt by man made constructions, and attractive cliffs and sand dunes run in either direction. It all results in a tranquil beachside ambience suitable for almost any visitor.

Accessed on foot via a boardwalk and wooden stairs, limiting the use of pushchairs and wheelchairs, it takes around 15 minutes to walk here from the large car park. This lies just off the nearest road access. Families tend to congregate close to the end of the boardwalk, while further away visitors will also find quieter areas suitable for nudists.

Playa de Cuesta Maneli is one of the few beaches in Andalusia that allows dogs. Its relatively calm waters also permit swimming in the Atlantic’s surprisingly pleasant waves, although lifeguards are not routinely assigned to this stretch of Andalusia’s coastline.
