Cabo Trafalgar

Reviewed By Vegieplot - West Sussex, United Kingdom

Called over to look at this historic place, Beaches were pretty good & really windy - just right for the kite Surfing dudes. Facilities were non existent, but it's a beach at the end of the day.......the lighthouse web site said it was open - but it's not - doesn't look like it has ever been open ?
Good vantage point to see where the straights of Gibraltar meet the Atlantic Ocean & of course the historic battle place.
No information on the historical aspect of anything, still I suppose that if you were outnumber 2:1 and still won, then I guess that's not worth pointing out.
Plenty of bars etc go to
Great for Surfing & waves pretty good

Lighthouse at Cape Trafalgar

Reviewed By ItalianChicken1 - Paso Robles, California

When it is windy it is very windy. We walked from the parking lot to the light house and boy was the sand hitting us like it was rocks, or glass!!!!
WE made it and looked around and walked back. Beautiful lighthouse, I heard the sunsets are beautiful. We could not sit or sunbathe due to high winds so we walked on the beach and watched the kite surfers then went for a drink in the nearby cafe.
We will come back again. In Summer the parking lot is packed and right now it cost Euro 2.
The color of the sea is phenomenal, a gorgeous light blue turquoise!!!!

Playa de Zahora

Reviewed By amdgriggs - Sheffield, United Kingdom

We've spent a coupe of delightful days here, once some really strong winds had died down. Popular with Spanish families and just a smattering of others, gorgeous golden sand, clear water, and lots of rocks exposed when the tide's out to go exploring for crabs etc. Because of the rocks and the sand bars it's also quite shallow a long way out, so relatively safe for kids too. And decent restaurants and beach bars too, just behind the beach - Sayorami is probably the best but also the most pricey. Parking's easy too - 1 euro 50 a day, about 2 minutes walk back from the beach (and Sayorami's car park is free if you then eat there). Definitely the nicest beach we've found along the Costa de la Luz.

Museo del Atun

Reviewed By onlineamiga - Malaga, Spain

Stopped by here whilst looking for something to do in Barbate. Opening hours published by the tourist office showed it was open. When we got there, only the shop was open and the museum closed, and there was on explanation as to why.
It looked good from the outside though, and I did pick up some tuna.

Centro Hipico Zahora

Reviewed By Petra0711 - Reichartshausen

It was a great week and I enjoyed it very much!
Simone and Melanie were great guides and my horse (Prinzessa) fitted perfectly to me.
I enjoyed the rides along the beach and in the back country very much.
Low season is a great time to discover Andalucia - I had still ~ 20-25 degrees, blue skies and Sunshine during the days, the Beaches were empty and it was a real good time to experience the life there outside the main tourist season.
I will defintely come back as soon as possible,
Thanks to Simone and Melanie for the great time over there!

Information Point La Brena y Marismas del Barbate

Reviewed By MKJ_01 - Kaunas, Lithuania

From the parking place, you begin the walk through the quiet pine forest and after some time reach the coastal cliffs with fantastic views. There is an observation area near the tower (the tower itself is closed and inaccessible) with amazing views to the ocean, cliffs etc. It is an easy trail to walk, flat, no incline. The only difficulty is some sandy parts of the trail. We were considering biking, but after I have seen the trail now, I understand that was not such a good idea because the paths are not made for bikes.
We were taking this trail with two young children (in the carriers), so we walked slower than normal visitors would. It took us 2,5 hours round trip including a picnic stopover of 45 minutes.

Hipica El Jibbah

Reviewed By Dianathurston - Zahara de los Atunes, Spain

When I was a child I lived in a beautiful town on the North Wales coast and was fortunate enough to own two horses and to ride them on the beach when I wanted. Like most lucky children, I didn't realise that the luxuries in my life were a privelidge and took them for granted. When I was 30 I moved to Spain and now, for the last 3 years, I have lived in the gorgeous coastal town of Zahara de Los Atunes in the province of Cadiz, only 13 kms across The Straits to Morocco. Now, I ride along the beach on beautiful arab, arab x and spanish horses with HIPICA EL JIBBAH and recreate the joys of my childhood but now with the wonderful climate, kms of virgen beach, and the Atlantic waves to gallop in; sometimes by moonlight with the lights of Tangier and Moroccan villages twinkling in the distance. All the horses belong to Graciela Mitjans Domecq who treats them with tender loving care but also trains them so that riders of all abilities, from beginners to professionals, can enjoy the wonderful experience of hacking along the beach. The tack is all clean and comfortable and the guides professional and friendly. Don't hesitate to visit the stables and book a ride if you are in the area. You can see photos in the web site, www.eljibbah.com Hope to see you there one day!!

Es un lugar peculiar donde podrás encontrar las copas más baratas de todo el pueblo. Por detrás tiene una gran terraza bastante tranquila.
