Safety:Very safe

Cadiz is generally a safe city for solo female travelers. The locals are usually friendly and welcoming, and the overall crime rate is relatively low. However, common sense precautions still apply. Always pay attention to your surroundings, especially at night, and avoid walking in isolated or poorly lit areas. Incidences of pickpocketing, particularly in crowded tourist spaces, do occur. Make sure your belongings are secure at all times. Stick to these safety measures, and you should have an enjoyable time in Cadiz.


Cadiz is relatively simple to navigate, which makes it easy to explore. The city is compact and most attractions are within walking distance. Additionally, it offers a reliable public transport system including buses for longer distances.

Is Cadiz worth visiting?

Solo travel experience

I came to Cadiz by bus from Malaga. From the station it is a 15 min walk to the centre. I stayed at an apartment, by myself, in the centre for 3 days. I am vegan and there are some very good options for lunch, snacks and diner. I loved hanging around at the beach and to just get lost in all the beautiful streets. I always felt very safe. I wish I could have stayed longer as the atmosphere was very nice.

Solo travel experience

Wonderful place for solo backpackers and digital nomads. Cadiz is a small port city on the southern coast of Spain. Beautiful architecture and right on the coast. Groceries are affordable and the local market Had some of the best mangoes I’ve had in my life! Very walkable and friendly people. There is a university in Cadiz as well so there’s plenty of young people and Erasmos students to meet. Nightlife is fun but not crazy like the larger Spanish cities. It is much easier/enjoyable if you speak some Spanish. Many do speak English but as in any country, native language is preferable.
