The beach is beautiful, and there are terrific little restaurants overlooking the sea nearby. Also you can stop at the ruins of Baelo Claudia, a real Roman gem from the past. Very well excavated with an informative visitor center.

A long broad strip of sand. Long walk to the dunes. Take water with you unless you park near the ruins. There is a restaurant there. Calm waters, very cold in October though. Very serene.

Have been to a lot of beaches, and this is one of my favourites - off season, anyway. I imagine it must be packed in summer. Had a great windsurf there too!

I've been there in August 2013, even through TripAdvisor forces me to select a different date. Amazing beach, I really loved it. It is very well arranged, many kiosks for refreshments and it is very well kept. The backyard dunes are pure fun. It is possible to run down up and down or dive / surf into it. Also very... More

Sun, Wind, Sea, History is a perfect holiday combination. Walk that huge dune to the top and check how it reminds you of GC Maspalomas dunes. Then walk around to admire what happens when a dune feeds itself of pinetrees forests. How amazing is to walk inside those corridors of sand. You can always sunbathe so close to a roman... More

Although Bolnia is one of the most beautiful beaches along this stretch of coast it's the Roman riunins that makes a trip here essential. Walking along what were once Roman streets is incredible, and while the beach gets rammed in the peak months of June - August you can enjoy a trip here year round.

Adjacent to amazing Roman ruins. Found 8 or 9 different kinds of shells. Fishing boats pulled up on beach. Dunes to climb. Amazing sunny January afternoon. One I will remember.

Just a beautifully clean beach. There is only one shop and it get busy. There aren't any windsurfers on this beach and it is known for its beauty so it gets busy!
