Great family beach

A huge long beach, lots of cafes and restaurants, little play areas all along the beach, showers as you come off the sand, lots of parking!

Only busy July and August when Spanish from Madrid and Northern Spain descend for their holidays. If you are looking for English bars and fish and chips don't think about this area but if you want 'real' Spain this is the place for you. Fabulous golf courses, natural unspoilt beaches, low rise hotels and typically Spanish restaurants. City of Cadiz... More

The beach is long, clean and has children's play areas provided in the area near the promenade. Check out the bars and restaurants. There are plenty and cover all requirements

is an amazing beach which is just as well as the area has very very little else going for it . Excellent walk and in summer the warmer water would make it a good swimmig area - ecouraged by surfers even in January

Clean, wide and long beach with good facilities and wide range of bars and restuarants for drinks, snacks and meals. Parking is limited for the size of the beach, so arrive early or be prepared to walk further than most people want to nowadays!

We have been lucky to travel to some of the 'best' beaches in the world, and we were somewhat disappointed when we discovered just how much money it costs to go back to these places when you have children. Having been to Nejer a few times, lovely in some way but awful beaches, we resolved to try and find better... More

Don't worry about that story on burning smoke. This must have been a specially unlucky day. La Barrosa is a fantastic beach. It's length is between 7 and 14 km, depending whether you include Cabo Roche or not. Apart from perfect sand and waters, you have lots of restaurants, many hotels (including some 5 stars), hundreds of apartments and houses... More

I was in the area during the month of October 2014. The beach is good but there were many days the smog from the burning fires coming from inland made it very unpleasant to be in the area. These fires are from burning "rastrojos" that are leftovers from the olive trees + that farmers burn freely causing large pollution in... More
