Have been to a lot of beaches, and this is one of my favourites - off season, anyway. I imagine it must be packed in summer. Had a great windsurf there too!

I've been there in August 2013, even through TripAdvisor forces me to select a different date. Amazing beach, I really loved it. It is very well arranged, many kiosks for refreshments and it is very well kept. The backyard dunes are pure fun. It is possible to run down up and down or dive / surf into it. Also very... More

Sun, Wind, Sea, History is a perfect holiday combination. Walk that huge dune to the top and check how it reminds you of GC Maspalomas dunes. Then walk around to admire what happens when a dune feeds itself of pinetrees forests. How amazing is to walk inside those corridors of sand. You can always sunbathe so close to a roman... More

Although Bolnia is one of the most beautiful beaches along this stretch of coast it's the Roman riunins that makes a trip here essential. Walking along what were once Roman streets is incredible, and while the beach gets rammed in the peak months of June - August you can enjoy a trip here year round.

Adjacent to amazing Roman ruins. Found 8 or 9 different kinds of shells. Fishing boats pulled up on beach. Dunes to climb. Amazing sunny January afternoon. One I will remember.

Just a beautifully clean beach. There is only one shop and it get busy. There aren't any windsurfers on this beach and it is known for its beauty so it gets busy!

A long beach with a cluster of great restaurants at the end nearest a huge sand dune. We were staying in Tarifa and this beach is not as windy. Never seems to be crowded but we have always visited during autumn half term. Swam in the sea each time. Our favourite restaurant is the end one. Gorgeous people run this... More
