Beautiful beaches in Huelva, Andalusia

I always linked the beaches in Huelva with the mass tourism holiday resorts in Islantilla. And I was wrong! Huelva holds some hidden treasures. Beautiful small coastal villages. Sure, with tourist accomodation, but small scale. Lovely long stretched sandy beaches. Delicious fresh fish in the authentic restaurants. Lovely little harbours. A perfect example of authentic and sustainable tourism. A joy to spend your holiday!
