It can be very windy, but it is a very special beach to spend the day in with your family. Just ask how strong the wind is going to be before going there.

Spent the entire day on Bolonia beach, wonderful. The restaurant hires beach beds for 4 euro a day and then deducts the price from your bill if you eat there....we did and both were just excellent

This dune is a real gem! The beach leading to the dune is beautiful, water is crystal clear and there is a lot of free space for everyone to set up on the sand. Do climb to the top - views are breathtaking! It's quite exhausting stroll, but definitely worth its effort. Tip: take some water with you before going... More

when you come over the hill down towards the beach the bay of Bolonia opens out spectacularly in front you, what a view. When you arrive you will not be disappointed. We go to the right towards the high sand dunes (as there tend to be less people) and park in the roman ruins car park. These are well maintaned... More

We stayed in Costa del Sol and drove around a lot, searching for the perfect beach. We found it once we reached Bolonia and we returned there a few times. The water is clear blue, the sand is white and incredibly soft - even in water there are no shells or stones, nothing but soft sand. Unfortunately the water was... More

Located just about 30 minutes SE of the gorgeous hilltop town of Vejer de la Frontera, this beach is the real deal. As you approach on a winding, gorgeous farmland road, you'll see that it's massive, both in length (certainly more than a mile long) and in width (more than 100 meters from water to the rocks and grass which...

The perfect balance between a soft white sand, cool water, nice waves. Maybe too much wind sometimes, but nothing terrible.

Walking on the brilliant beach, with wild horses and cows. The untouchable sand keeps the beach pure and wild. Spectacular views and a nice bar with a terrace!!
