Vejer is within a short drive of some of the best beaches on the Costa de la Luz. Caños de Mecca and Zahora are secluded bays with relaxing beachfront bars and restaurants. El Palmar is one of the region's best surfing beaches. Cape Trafalgar is a similar distance - site of the famous lighthouse and victory of Lord Nelson over the French fleet. The coastline of Costa de la Luz covers miles and miles of uninterrupted deep, sandy beaches backed by sand dunes and pine trees running from Tarifa in the south to the Portuguese Algarve.
The Costa de la Luz is a long stretch of spectacular beaches, which enjoy 300 days of sunshine a year. The Daily Telegraph voted this stretch one of Europe's ten best beaches (11th June 2005).
Seville, Jerez and Cadiz are all within easy reach, and offer culture in abundance, along with the world's finest sherry and tapas. Traditional flamenco, and bull-fighting are further attractions.
The surrounding area has excellent watersports (surfing, windsurfing, kite surfing and scuba diving) and the region is renowned as a cycling and walking destination. Excellent fishing can be enjoyed, both freshwater and sea.
The are excellent golf courses nearby. Montenmedio, only 10 minutes by car, is 'superb' and rated a 'first-class course' (www.worldgolf.com).
Horse-riding is also very popular, with the Jerez horse fair attracting equestrian-lovers the world over. We can help you arrange horse-riding along the beach at El Palmar, through a professional equestrian centre.
Also nearby is the town of Tarifa, which is heavily influenced by its Moorish past, but also includes the remains of a Roman settlement (Baelo Claudia). Tarifa is the southernmost point in Europe, and Morocco is a short ferry crossing away. This stretch of water where the Atlantic meets the Meditteranean is excellent for whale-watching, with regular tours leaving the harbour.
Come and find out why the Sunday Times called Vejer "a magical white hill village with huge Moorish influences... attracting some internationally famous people". This is the real Spain.
