Zahara, with its beautiful coves and fancy hilltop homes is best known for its fish.  Sadly, international demand for the local tuna, especially from Japan has made the industry a victim of its own success, with an inevitable fishing ban coming into forces soon to protect stocks- and I can understand why, as the tune here is superb.

But, you can also make the more sustainable choice of sardines – fantastic, fresh from the beachside BBQ.

Barbate – from the gloriously kitch and dramatic cinematic shorts, “Andalucia es de cine” – now available on DVD in English and Spanish.
