It's possible to spend all day here, such can be the rewards, especially in Spring when any Western European migrant is possible.
From the E-5, the track opposite the A-2227 turn off to Zahara los Athunes is commonly used as a starting point when coming from Tarifa (see the map for the other access points if approaching from Vejer de la Frontera or Benalup).
Once you reach the rise at the canal, it's best to turn left, following that track all the way to the end, (careful of occassional pot-holes), at which point you can either turn right for a 10km+ adventure to Benalup, or turn left back towards the E-5. Both tracks can be rewarding depending on how much time you have, flooded areas and the season.
You can stop anywhere on the tracks of La Janda as long as you pull over as much as possible. Some areas are devoid of traffic but others may have farm vehicles depending on the stage of the harvest.
