If you want to discover the authentic personality of Andalucía: to admire its natural beauty, savour the region’s exquisite gastronomy and understand the passion and pride for the region that every Andaluz wears on their sleeve, Cadiz delivers on all levels.
From white villages to endless beaches, Cadiz is the best kept secret in southern Spain and Villa Kaia enjoys the perfect location to discover everything it has to offer.
Situated in Urbanisation Atlanterra on the border between Tarifa and Zahara de los Atunes on the Costa de la Luz, Villa Kaia enjoys an almost equidistant position between the Cadiz-Malaga border to the east, and magnificent Cadiz city to the west.
There are a smattering of hotels, restaurants and mini supermarkets in Atlanterra itself, however you’ll want to head to Zahara de los Atunes (15 mins) for a better selection of amenities.
Zahara de los Atunes is a family friendly destination renowned for unspoilt beaches, laid-back atmosphere and as its name suggests (Sahara of the Tuna), the famous Almadraba Red Tuna (Ruta del Atun).
Where, neighbouring Tarifa is renowned for its bohemian vibe and eclectic nightlife, Zahara de los Atunes has taken a step back, choosing a more subtle approach to life. The town is petite but highly populated with restaurants (in town and on the beach), cafes and bars.
If beach days are an essential part of your holiday, Villa Kaia and the Costa de la Luz won’t disappoint. The villa overlooks two unspoilt beaches – Playa de los Alemanes to the east, and Cabo de Plata to the west.
Whilst Playa de los Alemanes (750m/13 min walk) is almost virgin-like with few visitors; Cabo de Plata (3kms/7 min drive) which merges with Playa Atlanterra and onto Playa de Zahara is a popular water sports beach and has a couple of good beach restaurants dotted along the way. If you are feeling energetic, take a stroll over the headland (19 mins) to Playa del Cañuelo, a ‘clothing-optional’ beach.
In fact, the Costa de la Luz is famous for its Californianesque beaches, and you’ll be able to visit quite a few within a 30-45 minute drive. For beach inspo read our guide to the stunning beaches on the Costa de la Luz.
