Zahara de los Atunes, Barbate
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.
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 situated in one of the most beautiful natural locations in Spain. Its location in the mountains but also its magnificent views of the Atlantic ocean make it a relaxing and tranquil paradise for the visitor.
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.
