At the very southern end of the stunning beach a strange structure comes in to sight. For those familiar with the coast of NW France, or the Channel Islands it is clearly a WW2 German bunker, strange for a country that was supposedly neutral at the time. It was built during that time to protect the Spanish shoreline. Tales abound locally of the Germans who happened to live nearby in Playa de los Alemanes and their wartime and post war activities. Today it is the haunt of local fishermen and not of people spying on the activities of shipping going in and out of the Straits of Gibraltar.

We went to Zahara to try and find something to eat but all the open bars and restaurants were heaving with locals and not a space to be found on a Saturday afternoon. So we wandered down to the beach and were amazed to only see 4 other people there on a huge stretch of beautiful golden sandy beach. Admittedly it was mid February but the sun was shining and we had a glorious walk taking in the light breeze. A quick stroll around have you the impression that Zahara would be very busy in summer as there were numerous cafes and bars yet to open.

An unspoilt gem of a beach. Hard to get to, with a 1km walk followed by some gentle mountaineering, but well worth the effort.
No facilities , no chiringuitos or toilets just unspoilt beauty in peaceful surroundings.
This beach is to the left of the lighthouse and parking is before the gated entrance to the lighthouse road. At the lighthouse look for the red paint spots on the rocks and branches leading you down to the beach. A certain level of mobility and physical fitness is required.

Beautiful, long, sandy beach. We were there is March, and we had the whole of the beach to ourselves. We walked west from Antonio’s for about 90 mins, till we got to the rocks at the end. On our way back we stopped at a beach hut for a drink.

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 sand pristine. We walk it at least twice a day, looking toward Africa or west to bar ate and vejer. It is populated by families with lots of children and babies. It is a place that feeds your soul.

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

The weather in Zahara was great, not too hot, even for us, though the sea was quite cold and rough. The beach was fabulous, miles of lovely sand.

A friend had told us that The Green Whale served the best Gin ‘n Tonic so we duly made our way just before sunset. “Nessun Dorma” was playing and people were standing to look to the West. As the music came to a crescendo, everyone cheered and the sun danced down the hill on Cape Trafalgar!
I’ve never seen anything like it!

The Ruta di Tuna festival started just as we arrived: 39 restaurants served tuna in all its guises, mostly rare to raw - some of them very haut cuisine, some barely a step up from a beach side grill. For €3.50 we could get a glass of our preferred poison and a tapa. After 3 days I was “tuna’d out” and begged for beef, chicken, pork – anything but tuna! So we had some of the local, free range Retinto beef which was so delicious we plan to back for the matching festival. It would certainly be 'vaut le voyage' as the old Michelin guides used to say.

The real Cadiz... National Turism , family friendly and tons of possibilities to enjoy a day in the beach. Even you want to have an exciting day... You might find 30 kgs Of hachis coming directly from Africa as it happened to me... And obviously handed it out to the police... Pic attached!

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 already did so): No body cooks tuna as Zaharian´s.
While in the beach, beware of the wind and some tidal currents. Follow life-savers instructions allways. Swimm safe & enjoy.
