Mazagón Beaches

Mazagón is a population center belonging to the municipalities of Moguer and Palos de la Frontera in the province of Huelva, Andalusia, Spain. It is governed by the Moguer – Palos de la Frontera consortium, formed by the municipalities of Moguer and Palos de la Frontera. References to Mazagón as a population center began in the late 19th century and lasted until the mid-20th century, driven by fishing, the wealth of its forests, agriculture, and the summer residential character that many families from Moguer, Palos de la Frontera, Bonares, or Rociana del Condado gave it. Families from the current El Condado region were the ones who began to occupy the beaches during leisure times. At the end of the grape harvest, they would set up small cabins or ranches made of pines, eucalyptus, and reeds. Mazagón’s main tourist attraction is its extensive beaches and proximity to the natural spaces of the national and natural park of Doñana, the Natural Areas of the Palos and Las Madres Lagoons, and the Estero Domingo Rubio. Mazagón has the most pristine beaches in the province of Huelva and boasts a natural environment with sand dunes and pine forests as prominent features. It borders the Doñana National Park to the northeast, where the so-called Playa de Castilla begins. It holds the Blue Flag for its Marina and for the beaches of Parador and Las Dunas, the latter since 2021. Mazagón has significantly improved its tourist facilities in recent decades, although it still remains a second residence for residents of nearby municipalities.
