The Beaches are still unspoilt and though it has a thriving tourism industry in Summer, Most of the year the weather is good enough for beach goers but is a lot more peaceful and ideal for nature lovers. With its Many different styles of beach, from shelters coves to never ending long stretches of beach and A notable Bohemian feel, there are many beach bars and restaurants right on the beach front that you can sit at and watch the sunset straight infront of you on some of the westerly facing beaches.

For anybody looking for a business abroad there is a strong argument for Caños de Meca and El Palmar, Vejers official beach. A guaranteed full summer due to the strength of spanish tourism and the bonus of decent advertising bringing in the European market off season makes for it to be one of the best choices to invest. Caños has always been a very alternative beach area, similar in some ways to Goa before it got commercialized or Ibiza even. Over the years the demographic has changed and going more mainstream with better Infrastructure and many investments as well as celebrities moving in the area is set to explode.

All of them with a taste for the Artistic and alternative and with a knack for finding unique and incredibly beautiful locations. Caños is the one.
