Zahara de los AtunesSpain

Unspoilt beaches bathed by the Atlantic and delicious cuisine are the allures of a holiday in Zahara de los Atunes: a paradise within your reach.

Zahara de los Atunes is a sea-faring town located on the wildest part of the Cadiz coastline. Check out our selection of cheap trips to Zahara de los Atunes and enjoy unique culinary dishes where tuna features prominently.

Zahara de los Atunes’ main claim to fame is its unspoilt beaches with crystalline waters and golden sands. Relax at Cañillos or El Cañuelo beach, or spend the afternoon at the marvellous Los Alemanes beach and watch the sun set from the lighthouse of Cabo de Gracia. Zahara beach is blue flag and ideal for water sports.

If you’re looking for a little more than sun and surf, check out Palacio de Pilas, a 15th-century palace that is the only remaining one of its type in the area. Of the three towers making up the complex, only one currently remains, as well as the wall that surrounded the palace.

You can also delve into the area’s history as there are numerous caves with cave paintings. Several anthropomorphic tombs have been found near Atlanterra cave, and Los Alemanes cave has several images.

Why not take advantage of special prices offered by our package deals to Zahara de los Atunes? The seaside village boasts numerous curious facts, such as one of the characters in Cervante’s La ilustre fregona was from the village. What’s more, the Spanish word “cachondeo”, meaning ‘messing around’, may originate from the shores of the River Cachon on its passage through Zahara. It is said that the tuna fishermen organised parties beside the river and the lively nature of these parties may have given rise to the term.

This pretty village is only a short distance from Tarifa and just over 62 miles from Cadiz, with regular bus and taxi services. Check out our holiday deals to Zahara de los Atunes and explore this corner of the Cadiz coastline.
