The hotel is near Tarifa and not too far from Conil. I liked everything about it. The place is a quiet roadside hotel with better than expected service for it to be granted just a star. It deserves at least 3.

Really a wonderful beach, can only get crowded in the high season, as all places... It's a pleasure to go and get some fresh seafood at the Cheringitos at the beach, the little sea restaurants at the and of an wooden walkway. You can also see the roman ruins there, if case you are interested in some culture. As for... More

Chiringuitos offer good food for lunch. Good for chilling if you are not in to kiting or the wind is down (quite rare in Tarifa).

Stopped here on the way to whale watching in Tarifa. Free parking, lovely sandy beach and warm Atlantic waters. Perfect beach to lie on and do some swimming..

a beautiful wild beach with white/gold sand. A hippy atmosphere. Has nudist area. Nice chiringuitos, especially to left as you enter, of the more alternative/hippy variety.

The sea is much calmer here and so ideal for kids. Also there is a lot less seaweed compared to Los Lances Beach in Tarifa. The sand dune is worth a climb and the beach restaurants were also very respectable too. We went here a few times when the wind picked up and the kids loved it every time (which... More

Traveled here from Tarifa nearly every day for the fantastic beach. Yes it can get windy depending on the direction of the wind. Its very Spanish. The beach does have showers, it does have at least one beach bar that does sunbeds (8 euros a day) We went July into August, yes there are dogs on the beach but I... More

I travelled to Bolonia Beach in Tarifa with my family last week. We were staying in San Pedro and have visited most of the local shale and pebbly beaches. If you are prepared to travel for around 1.5 hours on some pretty wild roads Bolonia will not disappoint... Fantastic sandy beach with gorgeous clear water. Litter to a minimum. Several... More

Took about 90 minutes drive from San Pedro to this beach, but it was worth it. A beautiful sandy and breezy beach about ten miles long at least! Lovely clear and shallow water. Some beach side cafes to get a quick bite and drink. Some stalls to buy trinkets etc. Recommend the pastries being sold on the beach, listen out... More
