El Puerto de Santa Maria is picturesque Andalucian port-town within reach of Jerez de la Frontera and part of the "Sherry Triangle". Situated on the Costa del Luz and boasting some great white sand beaches, the town boasts 13 miles of coastline with eight golden sandy beaches in the vicinity. The town remains attractive with a town center which is refreshingly traffic free, with cobbled streets lined with orange trees and typical Andaluz architecture with lots of wrought iron and intricate tile work. A great seafood destination, where sherry and brandy bodegas also abound! For culture and history seekers, it is worth knowing that Columbus, as well as author Washington Irving once lived here.
