It is an entrepreneurial and innovative initiative, since it is the only tournament held in the first-line of the beach.

Sand. Sand, sea and sun. The perfect combination. The ideal witnesses to a unique moment. The perfect accomplices to an unforgettable experience.
The images of horsemen riding their horses set against a crystal-like sea will be indelible. The shared laughter and conversations with friends on a summer’s evening at sunset in a natural park such as El Palmar, memorable.
This was the backdrop to the celebration of the 1st and 2nd Sunset Beach Polo Tournament, and everyone who was there knows it. It was not only about sport, and the Sunset Tournament, for the third consecutive year, managed to entangle polo with the beauty of the Cadiz coasts and the greatness of its people.
