Lighthouse of Trafalgar Beach

Published on 20 septiembre, 2016 by BagusVacaciones

Lighthouse of Trafalgar Beach

The “Lighthouse of  Trafalgar” beach is located in the “Caños de Meca” environment. It starts just at the feet of the Lighthouse located in “Cabo de Trafalgar” and continues to the north (right) to the area known as Zahora. The Lighthouse of  Trafalgar beach is a coastal strip of 2.000 meters long and 50 meters wide. Behind that strip there’s no building nor will urbanistic elements and we’ll only see a huge extension of plain field without trees nor other natural or artificial elements.The sand is really light in color and fine of texture, without being like in other beaches of great extension of dunes. In the furthest zone of the sea we find a small concentration of stones that some users use to build little structures to save them from the wind when this blows and sometimes even to have some privacy. The rest of the strip is constituted almost exclusively by sand with a very acceptable cleaning.The waves are moderate in summer although, it can be dangerous in different seasons, on the other hand, when the temperatures of the sea and environment doesn’t precisely invite us to have a bath. Sometimes, especially in the Pleamar, loud waves are produced in the first meters of water entry due to the hit of these with the ground in the pronounced slope in that zone.

It’s not that much risk and once that short strip is trespassed we find a calm sea where we can bath without major problem. Whichever the case is, you should have precaution, especially the days the sea is more rough and always if it’s about little kids or people that don’t know how to swim. The Lighthouse of  Trafalgar beach is little recommendable in strong wind days as it’s the case of the Levante Wind that due to closeness to the Gibraltar narrow, sometimes blows strongly in that zone.

To access this beach we should take the local road CA-2141 –Vejer-Caños de Meca—in direction to the Lighthouse of  Trafalgar. We’ll see that there’s a detour indicating that there are 1,5 km to the lighthouse, we’ll turn to take that road. It’s an asphalted road, wide enough although, the most crowded days we’ll find vehicles parked both sides of the road making it difficult to pass. The Levante’s wind, when it blows strongly during many straight days, deposits a certain amount of sand over the asphalt that sometimes will difficult us the journey through it. This rarely happens and only in a short section of the road and also, hardly ever prevents the passing, but in any case we should pass with precaution if this circumstance occurs. We should go straight to the end of the road to try to park the closest to the lighthouse as we can.
