There’s a little treasure, hidden for the big crowds that looks for the bustle of the urban beaches, few kilometers away from Zahara de los Atunes. This jewel is one of the most interesting, recommendable and quiet coves that we can find in the gaditan coast. We know it as Cañuelo Creek Cove. It’s located in a natural park, precisely the Estrecho one, which has conserved it as well as the surroundings.
What is waiting for us in this privileged corner? It’s about a virgin beach, where the human presence lacks. This is due to its difficult access. In fact, the only way to reach here is by walking from the Camarinal lighthouse. But the walk is worth it. Its approximately 900 meters longitude and its privileged situation offers the visitor an imposing view. Of golden sand, crystalline and clean water, abrupt rustic environment and a wild vegetation, shares characteristics with all the surrounding beaches, but what makes it different is the tranquility and calm breathed here. Actually there’s no service on the beach, so you must go well equipped with food and drink and take into consideration that we’re in a Natural Park, for which we have to take properly care of the waste. The beach allows the walking, the bath and sunbathe which that light that accompanies the shore gives. Given to the privacy we can find, in some areas nudism is practiced.
How to get there
Reaching this beach is a little odyssey which is worth it. You have to park at the end of the German’s beach and, from there, go walking first to the Camarinal Peak and then to the beach. The access is well marked, and the people of the place kindly point the way to the lost peasants. The pass is about a kilometer long, but the reward is offered to the walker from the beginning, since the vegetation, the views and other charms unites to the sea company, that makes it really nice to reach there.
Another way of reach there is from Bolonia Beach, through the path from Bolonia to Camarinal.
This cove attracts a lot of visitors who look for tranquility in a really spectacular environment. If this is your case, we invite you to get to know this beach and enjoy one of the jewels of the Luz Coast. The experience will be really unforgettable.
