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.

Bolonia is a superb beach which seems to be slightly more sheltered than Tarifa and is definitely less busy. The sand is lovely, great strides have been made with removing the large stones and ona hot day the Atlantic surf is just what you need to cool down. Be careful in the chiringuitos however. There are a few tourist traps... More

Great place - really interesting. Free entrance with EU passports. Museum is worth a visit too. Good for everyone and close to the stunning beach of Bolonia.

Super sandy beach, no windsurfers flying past you when you want a swim, an impressive dune to climb up, nice variety of seafood and tapas in the many beach restaurants .The excavations of an ancient Roman city "Baelo Claudia" to visit - very interesting museum, lovely setting.

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.

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).
