Zahara de los Atunes, Barbate


Zahara de los Atunes, Cádiz.


Zahara de los Atunes is a part of the community of Barbate and which, along with the latter town, separated from Vejer de la Frontera in 1938 and which has been since earliest times the most important centre on the coast for the fishing of tuna in the style of the Almadrabas, hence its name.

Situated between Barbate and the ruins of Baelo Claudia (Tarifa), it is currently becoming a very interesting centre of tourism thanks to its splendid beach.

Zahara de los Atunes is a beautiful fishing village. It is a location where you can enjoy the tranquility and beauty of its beaches, try exquisite snacks and meals in its large variety of bars and restaurants, enjoy the quiet and informal environment of its food stalls and “copa” bars, go horseriding on the beach at dusk or simply stroll and look at the craft in sight.

One of the principal charms of Zahara de los Atunes is its beach, which is scarcely surprising since we enjoy one of the most beautiful sunsets and can clearly see our African neighbours.

Its 7 kilometres long fine golden sands accompanied by crystal clean crystalline waters extend from the village of Zahara de los Atunes to the cove of cabo de Gracia, cover all the centre of Zahara and Atlanterra. As if this were not enough, it is also one of the few locations where bothe the green of nature and the blue of the sean can be found.

Its waters, in addition to being clean and crystalline are also cool and should be bathed in, because once you try it, it is glorious.

The collection of equipment and services is very complete. It is ideal for windsurfing and diving, and in addition there are nurses, lifeguards, ambulances, first aid points, showers and toilets.

Arroyo del Cañuelo, a wonderful beach in Zahara de los Atunes.Another thing to bear in mind is that the beach has been designated Blue Flag status for the cleanest of European beaches for five consecutive years.
When the wind is blowing in from the East you can take refuge from it by visiting Cala de Atlanterra, a magnificent beach protected by the mountainswhere there is a paradisical tranquility.
The majority of the restaurants and bars are situated only a few metres from the beach.

Atlanterra is a luxury tourist complex which extends to the edges of Cabo de Gracia. It belongs to the municipal district of Tarifa, but can only be accessed from Zahara de los Atunes.

A collection of beachfront developments, chalets constructed on a slope with views of the Atlantic Ocean and luxury hotels make this location an enclave of international tourism.
Atlanterra also has the "Playa de en Medio", a unique bay concealed between two slopes of the mountain.

Night in Zahara

Playa Cabo de Plata (Playa de los Alemanes) Espectacular cala de 1,5 km. de longitud situada entre los dos cabos de la sierra de la Plata (cabo de Plata y cabo de Gracia).

A night in Zahara de los Atunes should be sufficiently quiet but at times lively. You should go out late and enjoy a drink until the early hours in one of the large variety of food stalls and bars where you can also enjoy live music, generally flamenco and funk and bathe in the moonlight and stars next to the sea. Unfortunately, the food stalls are only open during the summer months, but the food stalls are not the only attraction. There are also quiet bars where you can enjoy a drink with friends or, if you want to dance, you can go to the "Discoteca Los tarugos".
