If we add to that the warmth of its fine sand (at the bottom of the sea there are hundreds of metres to discover), and the singularity of the small flows of fresh water which open in the sea, we can say that del Parador Beach (which systematically receives the Blue Flag) is not just a summery tourist enclave, but a Natural Area of extraordinary beauty and one of the most extensive and unspoilt beaches in Europe giving a genuine invitation to take part in water sports (Mazagón has a Leisure Harbour) and a collection of shells and conches with an abundance of species of particular beauty such as tellinas, tusks, espírulas, and caracolillos etc.

It is the como a la degustación de la gastronomía costera en sus numerosos establecimientos, así como a la práctica de deportes náuticos gracias a su Puerto Deportivo.

The richness of its forests, its picturesque fauna, which it shares with its neighbour Doñana, the richness and variety of the fish, the incomparable infrastructure of the leisure port and the quality of its beaches, which systematically recieve the Blue Flag, have turned the Mazagon of today into a thriving tourist destination.
