Los Caños

Los Caños de Meca is situated between, “La Breña”, which is a nature reserve of mediterranean pines near Barbate and the Atlantic Ocean. At the end of a headland overlooking the north African coast is the famous “Cabo de Trafalgar”, where the great sea battle was fought, this offers outstanding views along the coast of the “ Costa de la Luz” in each direction. Walking along the sandstone cliffs and rocky caves of Los Caños de Meca you can see fresh water dribbling from the rocks creating a verdant bank of plants and succulents. This small sea side hamlet which is still untouched by mass tourism was originally a favourite destination for hippies, the laid back atmosphere still remains.
The nearest towns in this part of Andalucia are: Vejer de la Frontera, Conil de la Frontera, Barbate and Cadiz.
