La Barrosa is one of the most beautiful beaches in Spain. You can walk many kilometres and enjoy the beautiful colours of the sea water.

Beautiful sandy beach. Bars dotted along the beach. Goes on for miles and miles. So much space I cant imagine it being over crowded even in peak season.

Still the finest promenade in the south, with excellent choices of bars and restaurants. A great people watching spot and a very friendly area to meet new people and renew acquaintances.

If you are ever in chiclana visit this beach you will not regret it It does get busy in July and August and on a Sunday but the beach is large enough to accommodate. The bars are excellent as well. If you venture around the corner there is a bar called el rincón well worth a visit.
