Zahora beach is located between Los Caños de Meca and El Palmar beach, in Barbate, Cádiz.
Zahora beach is situated next to the Natural Monument of Trafalgar sand bar, just north of the lighthouse.
In summer you will always find a space on the beach to spend the day without too many people around you, and off season you will practically have it to yourself.
Trafalgar lighthouse is surrounded by coves and is a great place for diving, and discovering the marine life living there.
Opposite the beach, we are surrounded by the Natural Park of la Breña, cliffs and marshes of Barbate, which extends for more than 5.000 hectares up to the towns of Vejer and Barbate.
The forest contains Umbrella Pines and a large variety of wildlife, a great place for bird watching as many types of migratory birds stop here on their way to warmer African climes. A unique environment for ecotourism and trekking.
Zahora beach, extensive and of fine sand, is surrounded by a reef, which at low tide makes natural pools where the little ones can play and nervous swimmers feel safe. It is a virgin beach with no lifeguard service.
The sunsets from Zahora beach are stunning and visitors get together here to admire the spectacle and try to spot the famous green flash.
In the area there are several companies dedicated to activities such as horse riding along the beach or in the forest, you can rent a board for SUP or a kayak, take a Kite Surf class, go scuba diving or fish.
Close by there are services open year round, such as restaurants, supermarkets, bars, shops and a chemist. Lovers of Red Almadraba Tuna have an extensive and exquisite choice of cuisine.
In the area we recommend that you visit Sajorami Beach and Amarna Zahora, where you can eat or enjoy a drink on the beach, while listening to good music.
