Beyond Zahara de los Atunes, towards the lighthouse, we find Atlanterra. Dotted with magnificent luxury villas, this beautiful residential hillside rolls down to seemingly endless sandy beaches. One of the best kept secrets of the Andalusian coast, Atlanterra is a haven for anyone seeking luxury within natural and tranquil surroundings. Due to sustainable development and great care for aesthetics, Atlanterra attracts people from all over the world who desire to really get away from it all whilst enjoying the Costa de la Luz in all its beauty.
The beaches of soft, white sand, seem to go on forever as they gently disappear under the crystal clear waters of the Atlantic Ocean. The beaches notwithstanding, Atlanterra offers so many opportunities to relax, have fun and enjoy your holiday to the fullest. Horse riding along the beach and through the dunes, hiking in the natural park, kitesurfing, windsurfing, paddle boarding, scuba diving, snorkeling; the list is endless. The local cuisine is extraordinary, not only in Atlanterra itself, but also in the traditional, vibrant town of Zahara de los Atunes, just 3km away.
The Natural Park of the Straits of Gibraltar begins here in Atlanterra and stretches all the way to the Mediterranean. Not only can you take off for many hours of unparalleled hiking along the coast, past the Faro Camarinal, down to the Playa del Cañuelo or along the path towards the roman ruins, the natural dunes of Bolonia and beyond; but you can start and finish at your own doorstep from Atlanterra, heading up towards the Sierra de la Plata which rises up to 458m above sea level with breathtaking views. Atlanterra is the place to be for extraordinary bird watching, prehistoric caves and Phoenician tombs. There is so much here to discover.
With the beautiful beaches all within easy reach, fabulous natural park and so many exciting things to do, this is the perfect destination for families as well as couples and friends. And if you enjoy good food, you need look no further.
