Short walk in direction to south and you will see less people. Restaurants are fast accessible, but a bit more expensive than in Bononia, for example (price for one cocktail was 8-10 euros). This place is not totally wild, you can see some few beautiful buildings, hills and long and nice beach. The water was clean and without water plants,... More

Lovely little village with unspoilt beaches. Tuna is the main dish in local restaurants. Nice landscapes in the area.

If you like long, long sandy beaches with gentle and not so gentle Atlantic rollers this is the place to visit. It stretches some 10km from Barbate to Atlanterra. Plenty of room for everybody with lifeguards at various points, some beach bars and loungers and umbrellas available at a couple of spots. This coast is windy of course so you... More

I'm not a beach person but my better half is, so......let me say, having grown up on the eastern seaboard in New Jersey, I have seen plenty of the Atlantic Ocean and have spent time on California and Mexico. This is so much better. The beach goes on for more than I can walk, the gentle rollers breaking perfectly, the... More

Zahara has two festivals each year May & September normally around 20th but check the Web Site. Great little fishing village with around 40 bars and cafes which compete for the "Best Tapas" . Tuna is the focus of May and you get a passport to follow a route around the town. Normally polo and horse racing at the weekend.... More

Not crowdy even in peak seasson. Some of the finest "chiringuitos". Best time during "Tuna seasson" , from april to june, when huge red tuna are migrating towards the Mediterranean for spawning (breeding). Some (too many) are netted by local fishermen with the ancient technique of Almadraba. Local chringuitos have been cooking and serving Tuna since... before no records (pre-romans... More

Sandy beach, beautiful surroundings and, if you walk past the river even in the height of summer, it is never overcrowded
