Caños de Meca

Only 8 kilometers from Conil, and 14 south of Vejer de la Frontera, we find this beautiful pedanía belonging to Barbate. Caños de Meca owes its name to the jets of fresh water falling over the cliff.



Despite the growth of tourism in the area, Caños de Meca still retains the essence of a free and intimate atmosphere of the old days. Its beaches witnessed the golden age of hippies and the bohemian atmosphere of the 60s and 70s, and ranges from Cabo de Trafalgar to the cliffs of Parque Natural de la Breña and Marismas de Barbate.

In the vicinity of Cabo Trafalgar, we find huge and endless sand banks surrounded by wild dune systems creating a magical landscape. As we head further east, approaching the village, the terrain begins to rise forming beautiful coves, rock walls and steep cliffs to reach the Parque Natural La Brena and Marismas.


From the municipality to the cliffs, you will see the famous “Caños”, freshwater jets falling through the walls forming beautiful landscapes. A magical place of the coast of Cadiz.
