Being located in the interior of the municipality of Barbate, it has a strong dependence on the fishing sector and a wide possibility to offer visitors all kinds of fresh fish and seafood.
It is worth mentioning the red tuna, known as a typical local product that is obtained through the almadraba technique. This method of fishing is an ancient tradition that is performed on the coast of Cádiz and stands out for its authenticity and antiquity.
Thanks to the use of all parts of the fish, especially red tuna, you can prepare and enjoy on the palate some dishes such as tuna with onions, rice with tuna and mojama in its wonderful bars, beach bars and restaurants near the beach.
You can also taste other dishes and even tapas made with sardines, mackerel, cod, dogfish and red mullet, that is, an infinite gastronomic range with marine bases.
As for the products of the land, the local vegetable garden has a great importance in the gastronomy of Zahora, and especially in the whole province of Cadiz.
