The Area

Beaches or Mountains? How about both! At Las Casas de Caños you get to enjoy the best of both worlds.

Caños de Meca

Los Caños de Meca has it all. Dramatic cliffs towering over hidden coves, and far-stretching beaches easily accessible to the whole family. Despite being relatively near larger tourist destinations, Los Caños maintains its wild and undeveloped charm. The area comes to life however during the summer months when pop-up beach bars welcome live music and dancing on our shores.

Faro de Trafalgar

The Trafalgar Lighthouse is as much a symbol of Los Caños as our umbrella pines. Always within view, the villas look out upon Cape Trafalgar, the site of the decisive battle of the same name, where Napoleon suffered defeat to the British Navy. Nowadays, the Trafalgar Lighthouse and windswept dunes that surround it make for a perfect spot to sit and watch the sun set over the sea.

Parque Natural de la Breña

From the fishing village of Barbate to Caños de Meca and inland to Vejer de la Frontera stretches Andalucia’s second largest coastal reserve, La Breña y Marismas del Barbate Natural Park. In it up to five different ecosystems are distinguished: marine, cliff, pine forest, marshes and dune systems. Ancient watchtowers stand guard along the cliffs overlooking the sea while the umbrella pines provide shade for a rich variety of Mediterranean wildflowers. Apart from fishing, one of the park’s main natural resources are the pine nuts collected from the Pinar de la Breña.


The freshwater waterfalls and springs, for which Los Caños de Meca takes its name, can only be reached carefully at low tide and by hiking at the base of the cliffs over rocks and through coves. The walk takes 30-60 minutes and must only be done while the tide is going out-otherwise you may get stuck! Best season for this adventure is winter or spring!

Something to love in every season!”

Los Caños de Meca feels like the center of the world in summer as Europeans head south to the beach and inland Spaniards flock to the cooler coastal areas.
