Los Caños de Meca
Los Caños de Meca is a magical place in the province of Cadiz (Spain) located just 8km from Barbate, 8km from Conil and 14km from Vejer de la Frontera.
In Los Caños de Meca you will find incredible beaches and dunes of fine white sand, surrounded by reefs bursting with submarine life that will captivate even the most experienced of divers.
Some of the beaches are nudist, but in the majority nudists and clothed mix with no problems.
Towards the lighthouse at Cape Trafalgar the beaches are flat and open to the ocean, whereas towards Barbate the terrain is made up of cliffs where wonderful coves are to be found, some of them only accessible at low tide. Fresh water springs fall from the cliffs, they are known as caños, which gives the village its name.
For lovers of surf, wind surf and kite surf, Los Caños de Meca is paradise. When the levante wind blows too strongly in Tarifa, Los Caños de Meca becomes the principal spot for sailboat fans and for flying kites, and the “Apartments” beach has great waves for surfing.
The choice of food in Los Caños de Meca is second to none, based on local produce and a fusion of cultures. A special mention belongs to snacks and meals created with the leading local product, Almadraba tuna fish.
The sunsets at Sajorami Beach are kicked off by live music and the mojitos are famous in all of Cádiz.
At night Los Caños puts on its best clothes and becomes a Mecca for the young people in the area, drawn to the discos and nightclubs.
