A long beach with a cluster of great restaurants at the end nearest a huge sand dune. We were staying in Tarifa and this beach is not as windy. Never seems to be crowded but we have always visited during autumn half term. Swam in the sea each time. Our favourite restaurant is the end one. Gorgeous people run this... More

After visiting the ruins of the Roman town at Baelo Claudia, we spent the rest of the day on this picture-postcard beach. soft sand, gently shelving shore, great beach side chiringuitos. Walk down towards the dunes to see the local fisherman and their boats dragged up on the beach.

The road trough the hills leading to this beautiful stretch of sand are a great leader that build up the tension. When you go over the hill and look down at the white and blue that compose this magnificent place you already feel that you arrived in paradise. Some cows are grazing here as well, an amusing sight.

We decided to stop in Tarifa in our way from Malaga to the Algarve. If we knew how beautiful is this beach we would have staid 3 days. The Atlantic ocean is clean and wavy like nowhere else. If you like White sand and large waves this is the place.

The beach at Bolonia is wonderful and so clean!!! The huge stretch of golden sand and the clean Atlantic sea makes it ideal for spending the day there. The beach restaurants are generally good and serve freshly cooked dishes and are great for relaxing. The only problem can be the wind which if it is blowing in a certain direction... More

If you like naturism, just walk to the second and third main beaches. Little paradise. Not busy at all, lovely white sand and you can see the coast of Morocco.

Picturesque, golden sandy beach with good restaurants and beach bars if you want them. Plenty of space too.
