Enjoy yourself among the locals
In Barbate itself, you’ll enjoy every possible advantage: both peaceful sandy beaches and the liveliness of the promenade. Because Barbate is set in a sheltered bay, it is the perfect spot for lovers of wind-free sunbathing. The small, traditional fishing town offers a wide variety of restaurants where you can take a seat morning, noon and night, surrounded by the warm cadences of Spanish conversation.
At the local Mercado de Abastos market, with its vibrancy and colours, an abundance of freshly caught fish awaits you. Walk along the Paseo Maritimo for coffee or breakfast, then stroll along the beach and order a cold beer to cool off. A little further along the coast, Los Caños de Meca also boasts delicious restaurants, bars and cafés.
Explore the many beaches such as Playa Del Carmen, Playa De Barbate and Carmen Beach, take endless walks along the coast, and enjoy the glowing colours of the sunset each evening. The days here never seem to end.
