Description of Zahara . The best the beach

Zahara a los Atunes, a traditional Spanish family resort with a working fishing community still very much at it's heart.

Set on one of the area's beautiful, unspoilt beaches. There is a large selection of excellent restaurants and bars in the village and freshly caught seafood is of course a feature and a speciality. The beaches of Tarifa are a 25km drive away and are some of the best in the world for wind and kite surfing (a fantastic spectator sport even if you are not brave or mad enough to participate). Whale watching trips and day trips to Tangiers are also available from here. Inland are vast areas of national park, fantastic for mountain biking, walking and bird-watching. Nearby is the picturesque hilltop 'Pueblo Blanco' of Vejer de la Frontera, with it's winding alleyways and hidden courtyards. Here you will find many excellent restaurants and fantastic views. The whole region is truly one of Spain's best kept secrets.

Zahara de los Atunes is one of the few villages left on the Spanish coastline, that has preserved it's wild beauty. This fishing village has about 2000 inhabitants and a number of excellent fish restaurants. The fish here is fresh and mostly caught locally. As the name says there is a century old tradition of Tuna fishing which is still maintained today. Come and discover the beauty of this area - you will always come back! Also the countryside around Zahara offers unspoiled nature reserves, still to be discovered by most.
