Sea and cliffs or culture and cuisine? At Las Casas de Caños you don’t have to choose. Our unique location provides endless variety to fill your holiday with daily adventures- or you could just sit back and relax.
At Las Casas de Caños you can do it all
With close proximity to El Palmar, Andalucia’s famous surf spot, Los Caños boasts excellent and reliable rips and waves especially in fall, winter and spring. Driving 15 minutes to El Palmar you’ll find a variety of surf schools for all levels. Or stay right here in Los Caños to surf side by side the Trafalgar Lighthouse.
Harness Los Caños’ famous winds to enjoy adrenaline-pumping windsurf and kitesurf right here at our local beach riding the wind up and down the wild, cliffy coast. Spectators can get quite the show watching these kites soar through the air with the lighthouse as a backdrop.
On calmer days, enjoy the still waters as you paddle along the beautiful beaches, dipping into private coves by Kayak or SUP. Sunset rides are a must-do!
Flora, Fauna and even shipwrecks! Scuba dive in nearby Barbate or Conil to explore underwater shipwrecks from times past.
Walk outside Las Casas de Caños and step into La Breña Natural Park. Andalucia’s second largest coastal reserve, home to the emblematic umbrella pine (Stone Pine), is at our doorstep.
Exploring La Breña on foot is one of the best ways to enjoy the shade and magic of our natural forest. Trekking trails for all difficulty levels and durations start here.
Experience Andalusian culture by horseback riding on the beach or in La Breña. Morning, afternoon and sunset rides are a charming way to visit the area.
Los Caños is a cyclists paradise. La Breña forest paths encounter stone, sand dunes and cliffy terrain making it a thrilling location for mountain-biking enthusiasts. Road cyclists will enjoy our brand new bike paths connecting Los Caños to nearby El Palmar and Conil. *Free bikes included at Casa Bella Sombra.
Visit our local, ecological vineyard, Sancha Perez, where you can learn about the sustainable growing and bottling process of wines and freshly-pressed olive oil.
Whether you’re looking for fresh produce or great photo opportunities, the open-air market in Barbate is a must-visit. Open Monday-Saturday (no fresh fish on Mondays) until 14h it’s a top recommendation for our guests.
Fun for the whole family and incredibly informative, a visit to the Tuna Museum in Barbate will answer all your questions about the historic labyrinth fishing practice, la Almadraba. Sit front row to witness a real “ronqueo” as a whole tuna is manually separated into each valuable section. Experience gastronomy at its finest by making reservations well in advance at well-known favorites such as: El Campero, Yoko, La Breña, La Pequeña Lulu, El Jardin del Califa, and Los Caños de Meca Social Club.
Fun for the whole family.
Las Casas de Caños are lucky enough to be sandwiched between some of Andalucías most iconic and breathtaking Pueblos Blancos or The White Villages. This series of charming villages, all with white facades, are scattered throughout the province of Cadíz atop mountain peaks, between valleys and along the Atlantic coast. Take a day to drive the "pueblos blancos route" or simply pop over to the most spectacular, Vejer de la Frontera, for cafes, shopping, views and surprises around every corner. Just 20 min from Las Casas.
These incredibly well-preserved Roman ruins overlooking the coast of Morocco give us a glimpse into local life, leisure and industry dating back to the 1st century AD. The beachfront ruins and adjoining museum make for a great day trip from Las Casas.
