A highly recommended getaway 90 km from Jerez: the moment of the 'levantá' is unique and indescribable.
If you head southbound 90 kilometres from Jerez, you will find Zahara de los Atunes, with whitewashed houses decorated with flowers on the balconies, beach bars and rebujito cocktails, making it an ideal getaway where you enjoy the outdoors and the smell of sea. The name Zahara de los Atunes (Zahara of the Tunas) dates back to the 13th century when King Sancho IV granted Guzmán el Bueno permission to fish for tuna, and the invention of the 'ambadrabas' fishing technique (with two ships and a net extended between both), which you can still see today. The best time to try your hand at this fishing phenomenon is in the spring when migrating tuna are caught. Do not miss the moment of the 'levantá', when you can watch expert fishermen raise their seafood-filled nets.
