We parked at the Roman Ruins and paid 1.5 euro per adult to go in. WE walked around and read all about the settlement. Very well preserved and it felt like we were going back in time. After we spent some time we moved a little further up the road, parked and walked a good 5 miles down the beach.... More

As well as a beautiful powdery sandy beach with a fabulous blue sea there are fantastic Roman ruins to see. There is also a great wooden boardwalk into the pine trees in investigate. There are also a... More

With high winds making walking on the beach a less attractive option we headed for the museum and Roman archeological site of Baelo Claudia. Entry is free for EU citizens and there was a leaflet available in English. The museum also had audio in English so it was easy to find out about the site even for non Spanish speakers.... More

It was rather quiet when we were there but that would not be surprising for a beach in November. Loads of sea shells and we couldn't figure out why there were what looked like fishing boats on the beach where no one lived.

Hi people!! I lived in Bolonia 20 years with my family, we had a Restaurant there. Bolonia is very good place for Hollidays. The problem is the summer, to much tourist during July and August, after and before, like in June for me is better, no to much people, you can enjoy the sun, beach and the sea for you,... More

This beach can be seen when visiting the Roman Ruins nearby. It has a large sand dune at one end and lovely curving bay. Unfortunately when we visited the weather was warm but very windy!
