Listed below are some of the recommended experiences and activities that visitors can enjoy after cruising to Huelva, Spain:
 
  • The city only has a single beach, El Espigon. It is a young 3 km beach that is situated on a sand spit accessible only by driving across the Odiel wetland area. Long walks on the tranquil beach offer an ideal way to relax.
     
  • Fans of historical architecture should not miss the opportunity to visit an old cathedral called Catedral de la Merced. It was formerly the Iglesia de la Merced that served as the church of the neighboring convent before being designated a cathedral in 1953.
     
  • Those interested in learning about the region's history should pay a visit to Museo de Huelva, which is the city's provincial museum, which is housed in a modern building that has displays of archaeological discoveries, artworks, and ancient mining tools used by the Romans.
     
  • The region also has great sightseeing opportunities. One such activity is hill climbing in the Parque Alonso Sanchez. This park hosts three hills that are worth climbing for the panoramic views of the city and its landscape that one enjoys at the top.
