Isla Cristina (or simply “Isla” to its inhabitants) is located at the southeast of the European Atlantic next to the mouth of the river Guadiana, 45 kilometres from the capital, in an area of marshes and pine forests, surrounded by the natural area of "Marismas de Isla Cristina" with 12 kilometres of magnificent beaches of fine white sand, mostly unspoilt.

It is mainly a fishing population, which triples in the summer as a result of tourists enjoying the coast, the freetime activities ant its cultural legacy. Famous in all markets are the shellfish, sardines and other fish caught by the fishing fleet which consists of some 300 boats, its fish market also being one of the most important for selling fresh fish in Spain.

The large part of the protected area consists of sea marshes, whose vegetation is characterized by its adaptation to the saline environment. Its rich bird life is characterized by those birds which have adapted to the aquatic environment.

The beaches of Isla Cristina, of fine, golden sands, are also part of the natural heritage and cover 12 kilometres of the Huelva coastline. Together with the denominations of Punta del Caimán o Isla de la Gaviota, Playa de El Cantil, Parque Litoral, Caminito Santana, Central, Del Hoyo, Casita Azul, Cruce de La Redondela, Urbasur e Islantilla, Isla Cristina is part of a group of beaches surrounded by a large chain of dunes and pine forests of great ecological value.
