If I had to choose one of my biggest and unexpected discoveries on the Costa de la Luz  it would certainly be Conil  de la Frontera. 

I did not plan a trip there, it came out quite spontaneously because visiting Vejer de la Frontera I had to spend the night somewhere ... it was Conil, who was the only one to have a free night on that day, thank God! The weekend spent there made me feel like on a long vacation, with beautiful beaches, insane cuisine,  with  away from everything.  

 

Conil de la Frontera is a picturesque white town, once a fishing village that specialized in catching red tuna, today it can be safely called a seaside resort. Sluggish only for  day and night it takes on its second face, teeming with life until late  night hours (read morning  :) Climate, loose, a bit of ubiquitous relaxation  it reminded me of Tarifa, but here the Spaniards rest with their families (even malaguenos), here they are rather locals.    

 

Wandering through the small, narrow streets you will surely come across a building built in the 15th century.  Church of Santa Catalina, Gothic  defensive tower  La Torre de Guzmán and the arch / gate called  Puerta de Vejer, once symbolizing the road leading to  Vejer de la Frontera.  

 

What is Conil about, what distinguishes him from other pueblos blancos? Beautiful, stretching for miles  the wide beaches of the Atantic Ocean, which is here unique shallow and  calm. For example, Playa de Los Bateles, owned by  the most popular in Conil de la Frontera, is  about 1000 meters long and 10 meters wide, it is called one of the cleanest beaches in all of Spain.

In turn, in the north  parts  we will find the city  the cliffs they hide  small coves and wild beaches allowing for seclusion and peace (Playa del Chorrillo, Playa del Puntalejo) and romantic evenings at sunset.  

 

If you are  already in this part of the Cadiz province it would be a sin not to try its specialty, i.e. red tuna (atún rojo de almadraba), which  at Conil it is of the highest quality in particular, reigning supreme on plates in all varieties. But if they dream  you like seafood to go, this little place called  la Freiduría Zapola will not disappoint with its insane cuisine.  

 

I am sure Conil de la Fronteria will remain on my list of places where I will come back more than once. It is a proof that  spontaneous journeys and the lack of a plan sometimes allow us to discover real gems, and  we are doubly delighted with no expectations :)
