“Great Relaxing Beach”
Reviewed September 16, 2012

My wife and i spent the afternoon on Bolinia during our anniversary trip in may 2010.. Great beach and on the clear day we could see africa, a real treat for us Americans..Enjoyed cerveas and appetizers at the cantina on the beach. Good food and beer at inexpensive prices. Can not comment on hotels. Wewereonly passing through on the way to malaga. Roman ruin was closed for the day, Wish we could have stayed longer and hope to return

“The best beach in Andalucia”
Reviewed August 14, 2012

A fantastic beach, basically unspoilt with an enormous sand dune at one end. The water is very nice and warmer than on Costa del Sol. When the mist lifts in the afternoon you can see the African coast across the straits. And if you want to do something more intellectual than sunbathing, you can visit the Roman ruins of the old settlement a few meters from the beach.

There are a couple of restaurants near the beach, nothing fancy but they serve what you need. There are also possibilities to stay overnight, but we always go on day trips. 1½ hours driving from Costa del Sol.

“Nice Beach”
Reviewed June 3, 2012

We visited Bolonia late in the evening in April and it was a little chilly. We had the entire beach to ourselves. Beautiful white sand. Nice for shell/rock hunting. It was a little windy, but this area is known for wind. There are supposed to be some Roman Ruins nearby, but we weren't able to find them.

“One of the best beaches in Spain”
Reviewed April 12, 2012

I shouldn't be writing this, as a part of me thinks this should be a hidden gem, but this beach is incredible. White sand, crystal clear water and hard to get to... all good points, as it keeps the beach not too crowded. It's a very big beach too, which means, if you really want to get away from the more crowded area all you have to do is park the car and walk east for half an hour or so... The roman ruins and the free range cattle make it an even more interesting place.

Hardly no accommodation round the area (another good point) so you might have to stay in a nearby town, such as Tarifa or Vejer...

“Bolonia - our favourite beach within 2 hours drive”
Reviewed August 5, 2011

I've been to Bolonia 5 times. With my first wife and son some years ago, with my second wife a couple of times in the last couple of years from our home in the Serranía de Ronda, with German in-laws last year and with German step-children on my birthday this year.
It's actually our favourite beach, of all the ones we've tried.
However, I've yet to see a nude or a sunbed! Obviously we go to the wrong bits of the beach.
Baelo Claudio, the Roman settlement referred to by another poster, is simply stunning.
