Walking on the brilliant beach, with wild horses and cows.
The untouchable sand keeps the beach pure and wild.
Spectacular views and a nice bar with a terrace!!

My father rented a house for the winter on this beach. Beautiful beach, great sand dunes at the end, also resto patios open during the weekend in the winter. NIghtime fishermen, roman ruins to visit and the scebnery along this coast line is amazing you can see Tangiers across the water ! Tarifa 20 mins aweay and you can watch all the kite surfers ~

Beautiful beach with sand dunes to walk/run up and down to one end of the beach. Yellow-white sand and sea with waves for fun but not too windy!

Couple of great chiringuitos for lunch and a small shop for supplies. Easy parking right next to the sand.

The beautiful bay and beach here would be worth the visit even without the mountainous sand dune and one of the most extensive and well-preserved Roman coastal cities.

A highly strategic settlement just on the Atlantic side of the entrance to the Mediterranean, Baelo Claudio (now Bolonia) has history, leisure and culture to spare. Apart from its military significance, its siting took advantage of the plentiful sardine and anchovy resources used in the "garu" (fish sauce) factory which provided a bit of flavour to a Roman soldier's otherwise boring staples.

A relatively safe and spotlessly clean beach washed by clear Atlantic waters is a great place for a family day out. There isn't much shade, so take your parasol and break up your day with a (free to EU citizens) visit to the wonderful, new museum and lunch in one of the good chiringuitos (beach restaurants). Climbing the sand dune is great exercise with a fantastic view at the top and an exhilarating run back down - the only place I can run downhill and not worry about my ankles!
