Aquatic activities are the most popular in the area. If you want to discover the reefs, the caves or the remains of sunken boats, we recommend SCUBA-DIVING that you can do with specialized companies. Also, the SURFING and BODYBOARDING fans have a perfect place for practicing. The beach with the best waves in Los Caños is Marisucia, but you also have El Palmar on the way to Conil and Hierbabuena near to Barbate. In El Palmar, there are several surf schools with individual instructors making it the ideal beach for beginners. And when the Levante wind blows, Playa del Faro becomes the meeting place for people that enjoy KITESURFING and WINDSURFING. Also, both Los Caños and Las Marismas de Barbate are good places to do other water sports such as KAYAK and PADDLEBOARDING.
