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

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

The beach is fantastic, nice soft sand and very long so once you get away from the busy area outside the apartments and beach bars you have lots of space. There is a large naturist beach which starts to the left of the beach bars and continues all the way down to the natural pools of El Chorrito where you... More

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
