The best time to visit this resort is definitely the summer period where tourist numbers are at their highest and the area has a real tangible buzz about it. Temperatures tend to reach the high 20s and even into the lower 30s throughout the summer months whilst the period between autumn to spring drops to the low teens. Summertime is when Spanish tourists are out in full force and the weather is at its hottest, so we recommend a trip then.
The city itself is full of beautiful architecture and monuments for tourists to feast their eyes upon. Some of the more notable sights include the Municipal Art Gallery, the Museum of the region’s popular Carnival and an eco-museum that is located in an old tidal mill. There are also plenty of things to do in Isla Cristina that include a stroll along the Route of the Sunsets, bird-watching in the marshes that surround the resort and a visit to the Horacio Noguera theatre which is a cultural landmark of the city. A walk down to the harbour and nearby beaches are also great things to do too.
Isla Cristina is known for its tuna and even has a famous ‘tuna culture’ for tourists to sample. Some of the most famous tuna dishes include Anchored tuna, tuna with onions and tuna with oil.
