Leave Barbate through the port, and as the road starts to climb go up along a path through a pine forest past the Torre de Tajo on a good path all the way to Canos de Meca. Going through this seaside town will take you past a garage converted into a sherry bar where you will be unable not to stop. Resume refreshed through the town and exit along the road until a left turn to the Trafalgar Lighthouse opposite a minigolf and through a campsite. Follow the beach all the way past Zahora, and the teen dream surf shacks of El Palmar. Then there’s a grassy inland path (beware the Spanish Navy practising beach manouevres) that takes you to the footbridge into Conil. This is a larger, more touristy pueblo with a very good Argentinian pizzeria, Pizza 10. Staying at Hostal Campito – new, clean, warm and calming.
