Playa de Caños de Meca

The south facing beach of Caños de Meca (named after its nearest settlement) is a relatively narrow but exceptionally long stretch of golden sand running for close to three kilometres.

Around 16 kilometres southwest of Vejer, it is located in a stunning area of natural beauty, situated between cliffs that climb to a height of 100 metres and the Trafalgar lighthouse. What’s more, it’s backed onto by the pine trees of La Breña Natural Park.

Offshore, Playa de Caños de Meca can offer up several reefs, making it a prime possibility for snorkelling and diving, and winds strong enough to make it attractive to both kite and wind surfers.

The beach itself is well-equipped with toilets, changing rooms, and a flag system to denote the safety of the water. This former hippy hangout now has a multitude of restaurant options to choose between, in addition to a picnic area.
