About this holiday

There is some stunning scenery to enjoy on this new walking holiday on the Costa de la Luz. We are based in the charming, authentically Spanish resort of Zahara delos Atunes – our hotel lies in the heart of the town so close to its glorious beach and bars and restaurants.

The walking is a wonderful mix of coastal and inland scenery:

Barbate Cliffs

A beautiful walk along the highest cliffs of the Andalusian coast! Starting from Barbate, we climb gently from the beach through inland pine woodland and mediterranean shrubland. The views are amazing and we might even see the coast of Africa in the distance. We continue to the village of Caños de Meca perfect for a pitstop on its lovely beach and maybe dip your toes in the sea.

The walk continues along the beach as far as the headland at Cape Trafalgar and its iconic lighthouse.

Bolonia Coastline

We start from Valdevaqueiros and its huge dune and walk through the countryside climbing towards San Bartolome mountains. On the way, we walked passed one of the major Necropolis known in the South west of the Iberic Peninsula used by prehistoric humans and later on by Romans for their funerals. We get to the tiny village of Betijuelo hiking amongst cattles and start going down back to the beach across the pine forest. The beach we get to is lined with stunning rocky cliffs and we walk along this cliffs as far as Bolonia. On our way, we can enjoy stunning mountain and coastal views, as well as many migratory birds, especially eagles and vultures, which glide effortlessly on the thermals overhead. Bolonia is an idyllic place to relax at the end of our hike, and if you wish, you can take the time to visit the best conserved Iberian Roman Ruins, a roman village where you can still observe all the social organisation of Romans life.

Alcornocales Natural Park

The longest, but most beautiful walk of the week ; we start with a walk through a cork tree forest (Alcornocales) continuing through a canyon (canuto) where the humidity and the microclimate allow for a spectacular array of tropical vegetation. As we continue, on clear days, we can see the rock of Gibraltar, coast of Africa, the cliffs of Barbate and the bay of Bolonia.

Coastal Trail to Tarifa

A pleasant walk along the coast to Tarifa ; we hike along pebbled beaches, passing the imposing watch tower of Guadalmesi, with the 2 pillars of Hercules, the official waterline between the Mediterranean Sea and the Atlantic Ocean clearly visible. The walk ends in the charming resort of Tarifa with its beautiful old town and fortress.
