This is a really beautiful long golden beach with a promenade along a small part of it. In my opinion, it's a really busy family beach during the summer months and in winter a perfect place to enjoy long walks. It has something for everyone at different times of the year.

Stayed in apartments just a little way off the beach.. my partner walked the beach each day. Quiet in the week but full of locals at the weekend.. Beautiful area.. good links to Chiclana, and Cadiz, a bus every 30 minutes in November.. more frequent in the summer I understand from our apartment owners. The cafes and restaurants both on...

One of the better beaches in Spain, gradual sloping into the sea, wide, except in july-august perhaps ample space, then it can be crowded, all facilities including salvage team - showers and toilets, restaurants and chiringuitos all over, divided into three parts: Barrosa 1, with walking path alongside until Barrosa 2, where small dunes and unpaved sand road continue, quieter,...

This beach is sandy and clean. It was too windy too swim too far but it was so nice to take a long walk along the seashore.

A beautiful sandy beach with plenty of food choices and local shops. Would make a well worth day or night trip.

Long beach with lots of space for recreation. we were here in late september so there was not a ton of public. Annoying were the large roaches that were replacing the tourists on the boulevard

La Barrosa is a very nice sandy beach not far from the city of Chiclana de la Frontera in Andalucia, the west part of Spain. A lot of hotels are located here, as well some nice restaurants and bars. It's one of worth-visiting places in Spain!

The Barrosa beach is the best I know in Europe-- fine sand, 200m wide and 20 km long! There are many 4star comfortable hotels very close to the beach, we like the most Barrosa Gardens, with great services and delicious food.

This tourist town in southwest Spain is popular with German vacationers but relatively unknown to Americans, which was actually one of its attractions for me as an American. Very few locals speak English, so you really have to have at least a passing knowledge of Spanish (or German), but it is entirely worth the effort. Aside from the seemingly endless... More
