We really enjoyed the beach with white sand and crystal clear water. It was very windy when we were there, but the sun was burning, so it was still nice. The water was not cold as we expected. And very clean

Cool dunes at the northern end and nice snorkling at the southern end. Plenty of space for everyone also on a weekend. Parking is very difficult on a busy day so be creative or prepared to walk.

Windy, but that's the whole point. Plenty of kite surfing. That's what young people go to Tarifa for. Even though there are many other beautiful spots. Like the town of Tarifa itself. The white town at the bottom of the European mainland...

Long shallow beach, but watch out for the huge crashing waves, even in shallow waters. Dogs are tolerated.

Beautiful beach especially for people who appreciate tourism free, natural beaches without noisy bars, noisy tourists and people walking over your head...long stretch of sand, a beautiful view, fantastic for walks and horseback riding...windy and with waves, but still you get to have a good swim..good for kids as the water along the beach is shallow...we had a lot of...

If you fell in love with Bolonia Beach....don't miss reaching on your own feet to Camarinal Beach walking by the seashore. Ir doesn't mind if you go in summer or springtime. Always awesome. Today a surprised chamaleon exhibited its wonderful colours while passing from one bush to another. Amazing!

The place is amazing - windy, but great! The dunes are impressing. The way to get to the beach is not easy but it's a part of adventure ;) The mud that was found there is another attraction especially for women - the natural mask on your face will keep you young. To sum up - worth visiting
