Best known for the very battle where Admiral Nelson's fleet terminated Spanish naval power in 1805, this lighthouse is nevertheless not the destination for history buffs per se. Rather, it is a place of natural beauty where the blue sea meets the desert sand under...More

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!

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.

On 21 October 1805 just offshore from here Nelson defeated the combined French and Naval fleets at the battle of Trafalgar. Today the site is a haven for the surfing set. There is a small monument/plaque on a cairn on a sandy track leading to...More

Cabo de Trafalgar is well known for the famous naval battle between Spain and England, but it's also an amazing spot to sit down and enjoy an amazing sunset. If you are around, visit it. You will not regret.
