“Great Beach!”

Playa de la Barrosa
Certificate of Excellence
Attraction details
Reviewed July 19, 2012

The area of La Barossa is excellent for adults and families alike. The small businesses that adorn the streets behind the beach, the local tented markets and the wonderful promenade with some restaurants, a few bars and shops offer something for everyone. Go after 5pm and the heat of the day has gone, the sea is wonderful and the Red Cross keep an ever vigilante eye. Take a small body board for maximum enjoyment.

I have just returned from Chiclana and spent most days on La Barrosa. The beach is fabulous and cleaned every evening. I loved the fact that the bars were only a few paces away and thankfully no "pubs" to be seen. There was nothing nicer than watching the sunset whilst having an early evening drink. This is the first time that I have been here and will definately return next year. My daughters and there two young children came with me and it was perfect for them too. The boys really loved the carousel and mini train that was out at the weekend. Our Villa was lovelyl but a good 40 minute walk away from the beach, so I am looking for a 4 bed property with pool for next year that is in walking distance of La Barrosa so any recommendations would be most welcome.

We have been coming to this area for 4 years and this beach is one of the reasons. We always are out of the main season but there is always enough bars and restaurants open so we can pop up for a drink yet still be able to keep an eye on what is happening on the beach. There are showers so you can get the salt off you. This year there are boardwalks down to the beach. Each year the sand is getting finer. It can get windy and be careful of the undertow if you are not confident and the waves are big- but that's what we like about it. Don't come if you want allday breakfast or Irish bars. There are children's play areas at various places along the beach.
We have come at the end oh May and the end of October and are in the sea every day -once your shoulders are under it is fine
