This is not a beach where you lay stay for hours for some tanning, the wind is just horrible! But the beach is amazing, so beautiful and the water is almost cristal clear. Fairly big waves so I wouldn't bring small children here. This is more a beach to enjoy the ocean for a couple of hours and admire the... More

Nothing can describe with words a place like this, just awesome. The dunes, the space, crystalline water, white sand...and roman ruins !!! Simply a must visit.

The beach is nice and wide with plenty of space. Climbing the dune is the highlight of course and gives a beautiful view of the beach and its surroundings. There is plenty of fish to see if you have a mask and swim on the westmost side where there are cliffs. This being a sand beach, expect to bring some... More

Lovely beach, some would say nicer than Tarifa, as it tends to be quieter. A couple of good food places and roman ruins just above the beach.

If you are traveling to Cadiz don't miss this beach. Wide and long, crystal water, white sand and with a great view. It could be busy in August but it's still worth a visit. Take a snack with you or book a paella at one of the chiringuitos, you'll love it.

We've visited Bolonia 3 times in the past 5 years and it never disappoints. The beach is sublime with acres of fresh golden sand. The sea is crystal clear, a little cold but refreshing when the sun is beating down. The wind can be a problem, Tarifa is a huge windsurfing and kiting community wind is why they come buton... More

The drive to the beach from tarifa should have not taken from us more than 25 min but due to traffic jams it took us almost 45 min to reach the beach and over there it's a nightmare to park, and it tooks on the way back to Tarifa which is like 25 km away 2 hours - I would... More

Full of people, almost impossible to get there and back by car - we waited 1 hour just to wait inside the village for parking and on the way back 1.5 hours just to get to the main road and out of horrible traffic jam. Even traffic jams in big cities are nothing compared to this. As for the beach,... More

Queued all the way in and then nowhere to park. If you are going, go early. We ended up leaving and going back to Valdevaqueros where ample free parking, great beach and great sea.
