The coast of light and salt

Zahara de los Atunes

The sun reflecting on the sand, the sea and the whitewashed houses make Zahara de los Atunes a befitting destination of the Costa de la Luz, a paradise that shines by itself. In the foothills of the Sierra del Retín and the Sierra de Plata, 85 km from Jerez Airport and Gibraltar Airport, this coastal enclave belonging to the municipality of Barbate, in Cádiz (Andalusia), is bathed by the cool waters of the Atlantic.

Although it has a history based around fishing, it has been decades since the town of Zahara de los Atunes became a very appealing tourism attraction. Its whitewashed and ground floor buildings make it similar to the characteristic areas of the White Towns. The atmosphere of its bars and beach bars is an another appealing aspect, making it possible to enjoy live music performances as you gaze out at one of the impressive sunsets where the sun melts into the sea at the horizon. There are establishments where you can savour delicious gastronomy based on Mediterranean cuisine, with the famous Almadraba tuna and Retinto beef taking pride of place.

The location of its coastline, between areas of restricted access and natural protected environments make its beaches a semi-virgin space away from the pressure of urban areas, where you can enjoy the sea surrounded by nature. The coastline of Zahara de los Atunes offers some different and surprising images such as the Retinto cows enjoying the sun on the Pajares beach -reserved for military use but open to the public in summer- and the North African coastline emerging clearly on the horizon from Zahara beach. If the eastern wind intensifies, the beach of Bahía de Plata in the resort of Atlanterra and Playa de los Alemanes –between Cabo de Plata and Punta de Gracia- offers the perfect spot to enjoy the water without getting your hair in a mess. Opening onto the immense blue sea, the lighthouse and viewpoint of Cabo Camarinal rises up, marking the start point of a path that runs down to Cañuelo beach, a small and hidden cove that is not very busy.

This magnificent natural environment offers an extensive variety of leisure activities as well as the chance to visit the Almadraba Tuna Interpretation Centre and the Tuna Museum in Barbate, hiking routes in the La Breña y Marismas del Barbate Natural Park, horse riding routes along the beach and water sports such as kayaking and paddle surfing. You will also have the chance to visit nearby towns such as the enigmatic Vejer, Caños de Meca and its Tómbolo de Trafalgar (sand bank), the atmosphere in Conil, the Dunes of Bolonia and Tarifa.
