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.
