Vejer de la Frontera is an incredibly beautiful Andalusian village with traditional whitewashed houses and narrow, winding streets, which is completely unspoilt by international tourism. Located at the top of a hill, Vejer has spectacular views over the surrounding countryside and coastline, and on a clear day it is even possible to see the coast of Morocco!
The nearby beaches at El Palmar are considered to be one of the best surf spots on the Atlantic Coast, and the wide sandy beaches are ideal for surfing beginners and more experienced surfers alike!
