|Barbate - Zahara de los Atunes (9.55 kms.)|

To make this short section we'll depart from Barbate by the road to Zahara de los Atunes, which we can use as an alternative because it runs parallel to our itinerary. In case of low tide we can also make almost all the way along the beach, from have surpassed the river Barbate to have surpassed the river Cachon in Zahara. This way we increase de cyclability up to 100% due to have avoid the sand banks we'll come across in the path, which in other case we'd have to cross pushing our bike.
It would seem unusual the fact that in a section so short and flat, the difficulties are medium. The reason is that to pilot our bike by sandy tracks could become a little hard, more in case of to be loaded with luggage. Predominant landscape will be an extensive wild beach at our right and the hills at our left (the reason for this depopulation is the military use of those lands a few days a year)
People interested in nature will probably know they are in a pass place for amounts of birds, and also if we have a look to the sea it's perfectly possible to make out dolphins and even killer whales if it's the time of trap-netting or 'almadrabas' (Traditional fishing system for capture the red tuna fish during the spring)
