Zahara de los Atunes

Zahara de los Atunes is a small fishing village on Costa de la Luz, situated 30 kilometres north of Tarifa on the Atlantic coast. It belongs to Cadiz province.

Zahara is a windswept place with an interesting
atmosphere. On a quiet day, it is like going back in time.

Beaches
By contrast, on a summer's day, it’s the trendy place to be. A stunning wilderness of 20 km of unspoilt white sandy beaches stretching as far as Cape Gracia.

You can drive south from Zahara, as far as the
lighthouse on Cape Gracia and explore the beaches. This is a no through road; hence the area has remained unspoiled. 

Culture
In the village itself there are the sadly neglected ruins of the Castillo de las Amadrabas built in the fifteenth century by the Dukes of Medina Sidonia for protection against pirates and later used by local fishermen to store their tuna fishing equipment. 

Eating out

There are a few bars and restaurants around town, and you can also enjoy dinner or a drink overlooking the coast at the local Gran Hotel Sol.

Festivals
The summer festival of Zahara de los Atunes takes place at beginning of August each year.

Beaches 
The 8km long playa de Zahara de los Atunes, one of the biggest tourist attractions on the coast of Cadiz and was awarded a blue flag by the European Union.

The wide beach boasts crystal clear water and
golden sand and numerous bars and restaurants, serving typical regional dishes, line the beach.

Each summer thousands of people from every
corner of Spain and Europe come here to sample the fish, to enjoy the sun sets and relax in the peace and quiet of a friendly atmosphere – all of which constitutes an unforgettable experience. 

Climate
Zahara de los Atunes has a mild climate; the hottest period of the year is during the summer months of July and August, when the temperature rises to around 32 degrees, and the winter months drop to around 18 degrees. Zahara de los Atunes enjoys around 300 days and 3200 hours of sunshine per year.

Zahara de los Atunes review

An excellent selection of restaurants at reasonable prices. Other shops were a bit disappointing and it is necessary to travel to Barbate to find a good supermarket(Mercadona)


Costa de la Luz reviews

The beach at Zahara is excellent.
