Travel Tips for Conil de la Frontera
Acatilado Pines in Barbate Natural Park, Spain
Here in the Barbate Natural Park you will find the Acatilado Pine (Umbrella Pine, Sciadopitys Verticillata), a very stately tree as you can see in the second photo. They almost look as if they have been trimmed of their lower branches, leaving only the top canopy. But I was assured that this is their natural growth when they crowd together. We did not hike into the forest on this day as it was drizziling (as you can see in the last photo, but it looks like a friendly place to hike. This is what I found on the internet about the park.........
This park looks out onto the Atlantic, and with the passage of time, its 3,130 hectares have been shaped by easterly winds. Its umbrella pine forest stretches down to the coast and is punctuated by impressive cliffs, some of which are over one hundred metres in height.
The park also features a 1,113-hectare coastal strip which is a rich fish-farming area.
The fishing port of Barbate is one of the busiest in the south of Spain. The town has a tuna fishery as well as a thriving tinned and salt fish industry.
The main activities in the area are pine cone collection and extensive cattle farming, along with tourism
Canos de Meca
Although Conil definitely has the most beautiful beach in the area, it`s not easy to swim, because of the wind and the waves. so try out the beach in canos the meca too; it`s a nice small town, not overcrowded. The beach is not as beautiful as in Conil, but there is not much wind or waves, so you can swim the whole day there.
the atmosphere is very relaxed, there are small wooden huts, where you can drink a tinto de verano and listen to cool spanish music.
Unspoiled beaches of unbeleivable beauty
Conil is a little white village located in the Atlantic Coast of the Cadiz province, at the very south point of Spain.
