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

We have stayed with my wife on this beach just for a couple of hours, but this place is just stunning and it definitely worth spending more time on this beach. The water is clean and the beach is not overcrowded at all.

stayed at this wonderful place for one night. the beach is amazing - not crowded. if you want to be way from crowd and touristy places then this is the place to go. I wish I had continued to stay in this place than going to torremolinos for 2 nights.I hope this place does not become like that

A beautiful beach at about 20 minutes from Tarifa. If you want to have a little more space of your own than Tarifa

Great beach. Not many places like this are left around the coastal area of Spain. No people, no noise, no umbrellas - just the ocean, the beach and the sun.

Great beach, good restaurants and nearby is Baelo Cladia, Roman ruins. Worth the visit. Also a large dune to clime nearby. Parking available. Water can be very cold, but it is the ocean.

Pristine sand and beautiful water. The beach is huge and not too crowded. Hike the dune for amazing views and walk the boardwalk to view the ruins.

The beach at Playa de Bolonia is one of the best European beaches I have ever been to. It is 20 km further on from the town of Tarifa and a 20 minute drive. It is overlooked by Roman ruins of Baelo Claudia on one side and the biggest sand dune this side of the Sahara on the other side.... More
