Zahara de los Atunez

The Zahara de los Atunez is 20km southeast of Los Caños de Meca, it has a fantastic wide, 12km-long, west-facing sweep of white sand. It has a long traditional of being a fishing village made popular by its Atlantic bluefin tuna captured with the ancient almadraba style, today Zahara is famous for summer beach hang-out that’s becoming a feature on the local culinary scene. Its small ancient core of narrow streets and lively bars is in the middle of the ruined 15th-century Castillo de las Almadrabas, where the tuna catch used to be processed. In summer chiringuitos (beach bars) spill out on to the sand, however things are often lowkey towards the end of the year .
