Los Caños de Meca is one of the most charming places on the coast of Cadiz. It is a small village in the town of Barbate surrounded by La Breña Natural Park and the clear waters of Cape Trafalgar. Cliffs, pine groves, marshes, wide beaches, and dunes offer a landscape suitable for resting and outdoor activities.
It has been a place with great tourist appeal since the 1960s and 70s when it became an enclave for naturists because of its diverse ecosystem and the virginity of its beaches.
Phoenicians, Carthaginians, Romans, Visigoths, Muslims… Dozens of civilizations have passed through Los Caños de Meca attracted by its strategic location and tuna fishing. All of them have left their mark in some way or another. In front of the lighthouse that we see today, it took place a legendary battle between the English and Franco-Spanish fleets that changed the course of history: The Battle of Trafalgar (1805).
