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).

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

We stayed here in an apartment by the beach here out of season. If you enjoy long walks along a golden sand beach with few people about (the first day we only saw a handful of people) then this is the place to be out of season.

Really lovely beach that goes on for miles. Less crowded than nearby costas and worth the extra hours drive from Marbella. Good places to eat and sun beds are plentiful. Nearby Tarifa has some great places to eat in the evenings. Car is essential.

Just make sure you get there before October, as it all shuts down and its very quite. Summer would be the only time to go.

This is a great beach that should not be missed. Five miles long with gorgeous sand and warm water. Quiet and beautiful. Was surprised that the beach was so nice. Much better than Malaga or Marbella.
