A walk through Cadiz coast

 Cádiz coast is an ideal place to spend a few days with your family or friends. Consider the combination of the beach bluefin tunaCadiz peoplegood weather in the area and you get the perfect plan. .
Keep reading and we will tell you all about the best places from Tarifa to Caños de Meca.

First stop, Tarifa

The journey begins in Tarifa, a popular destination for surfers of all levels, where I recommend you spend the first day. There are numerous shops dedicated to this sport throughout the city, and you can breathe what we call a surfer atmosphere.

It is worthwhile to take a stroll through Tarifa’s historic center. There are narrow streets with whitewashed houses and very unique fashion shops that make this place feel like Andalusia’s Ibiza.

The most important cultural attraction in town is a visit to the Guzmán el Bueno Castle. According to legend, Alonso Pérez de Guzmán preferred to sacrifice his son, a Muslim prisoner, rather than hand over the city.

If you’re looking for a good time, Tarifa is the place to be, especially during the summer. Begin with the chiringuitos near the beach or the tapas bars with terraces in the old town.

Next stop, Lances beach

The Beach of the Lances is a popular destination for beachgoers. One of the most beautiful beaches in Cadiz coast.

This beach is very large and well-known for housing a large number of surf schools, which gives its beach bars a very appealing atmosphere. They come alive at night when they play electronic music, and we have always seen a very good atmosphere.

Continue to Bolonia beach 

This beach is one of the busiest on the Cadiz coast, and the entrance is like a funnel; if it’s a good day, you’ll need patience to enter and leave. The stretch between the N340 and the beach is nearly an hour long.

There are still beach bars in that area, but if you want more peace and quiet, you can walk for about 20 minutes along a path, always to the left and facing the sea, to reach the nudist area, where there are usually few people and you can walk your dog.

In this less crowded area you can also take a mud bath that leaves your skin very soft. If you walk to the end of the beach there are some natural pools. If the afternoon is passing and sunset time approaches, next to the large parking lot there are a couple of beach bars where you can have a drink while enjoying the sunset.

Zahara de los atunes

Village belonging to Barbate (also a part belongs to Tarifa, Urb. Atlanterra). They were segregated from Vejer de la Frontera in 1938.

Since ancient times it has been the most important core of the coast of Cadiz in the tuna with the art of the traps, hence its name.

Located between Barbate and the ruins of Baelo Claudia (municipality of Tarifa), now it is becoming a very interesting tourist destination thanks to its splendid beach.

Vejer de la Frontera, a must stop

Vejer is the most picturesque town in the Cadiz coast.

It is a town of traditional houses, all whitewashed and resplendent as a result of the constant presence of sunlight and light. Fortunately, it is still a relatively uncrowded area, so make the most of it.

The Castle of Vejer is one of the town’s strong points; admission is free, and dogs are welcome. The odd thing is that during the summer, a group of town scouts offers a guided tour in exchange for the will.

The Divino Salvador Church, Convento de las Monjas concepcionistas, Casa del Mayorazgo and  Molinos de Viento  are also worth seeing in Vejer.

But, as I previously stated, the best thing to do is get lost in its streets and gradually discover your own corners. You will undoubtedly find them if you spend some time walking through its streets, as Vejer de la Frontera lends itself to it without a doubt.

Final stop Los Caños de Meca 

To round out your journey along the Cádiz coast, I recommend spending a day relaxing on the beaches of Caños de Meca. The neighborhood is quieter than Palmar, and it is easy to find a peaceful spot to spend the day. 

In the evening, you can visit the Trafalgar Lighthouse area to see the sunset, which is one of the most beautiful in the area. Keep in mind that just behind the lighthouse is a west-facing beach that is protected from the east; keep this in mind as it can be your lifeline on many days.
