My personal opinion, the best beach in Cadiz. We walk til the lighthouse and once there we went down. There were very few people, wonderful day, calmed, sunny, warm, peaceful, and very safe. We walked along the beach, and drank wonderful mojitos in the "chiringuitos"....More

There is not much history left on this site of Battle of Trafalgar. However, it is along the coast of Spain and you will see some nice beach......... This is one of them. The Light house makes this area just a little bit better.

Historically a great place to visit. Fabulous example of a lighthouse for those who are interested. Great beach clean beautifully sandy not pebble. Interesting sight in both calm and rough weather. Good local restaurant nearby.

Best beaches and skies at Cabo Trafalgar! Always a pleasure stopping by here. Take a walk to the lighthouse or just relax with a glass of wine and a spectacular view on the Straits of Gibraltar and Morocco. Families welcome!

.... and swathed in history. An awesome site to visit and especially so on a blustery day with the sea whipped up into wild horses. The surfers were having fun as well.

Pretty good sandy beaches but really windy, not so comfortable for young children at this time of the year I guess- perfect for kite surfing.
