Punta Umbría is a coastal town in the province of Huelva, Andalusia, Spain, that overlooks the Atlantic Ocean side of Southern Spain. Punta Umbría is a small town that is located in the cape of two rivers, the Odiel River and Tinto River, or Red River. Both rivers run out to the Atlantic Basic to form the Huelva Estuary and Odiel Marshes, which are both part of Odiel Marshes Natural Park. It is one of the most mineral-rich areas in the province of Huelva that supports a healthy vegetation, wildlife, and eventual human settlement (one of which is Punta Umbría).

Punta Umbría, like many parts of the Huelva Estuary and Odiel Marshes, has been a settlement for the ancient Iberian tribes, Phoenicians, Ancient Greeks, Romans, Visigoths, and Moors. The interest of these various cultures lies in the rich mineral and metal deposits in the upper regions of the river. Punta Umbría has been the site of mining operations by foreign companies that had been heavily condemned for environmental reasons.
