Leave Bolonia by going past the Roman ruins along the boardwalk (the ruins are closed on Mondays, as if they were the Louvre). Go up to the right of the famous and impressive dune, because along the coast to the left of it is a military installation. Then keep veering left and up through a pine forest past Punta Camarinal and an abandoned military camp and a goat farm. At the lighthouse, ignore ‘Rule One of not getting lost’ and go down through the shrubbery – it gets you to the beach at Zahara de los Atunes and a long long row of stunning villas (local celebs only) that eventually lead into the pueblo itself. Sudden rainstorm just at the town walls not necessary. Made for a good lunch break in a chiringuito, where the drunk lady at the bar was apparently a magistrate who knew the secrets of all of Spain. Then go along the next beach and a grassy path towards Barbate (which used to be called Barbate de Franco until 1998 so it’s easy to see which side they were on in the Civil War) . Then you have to take the road and cross a road bridge to get into Barbate Pueblo itself. It’s a working town in atmosphere if not in rather sad economic reality. We had a nice dinner at a table next to a silent Moroccan fishing crew who were stocking up on fried fish before heading out to the South Atlantic or similar. Staying in the Hostal Barbate. Friendly.
