What a beach, sand and water to die for! We walked to the far end due to the wind and climbed up the dune great view I would go back here swimming in the sea was just unreal clear, waves and cooling!

Beautiful and quiet beach, loved it! If you are looking for a beach that is not crowded but peaceful and stunning, this is definitely one! And nice waves!

Visiting Bolonia in the old days (30 ys. ago), one could find wild horses and even a wild bull in this beach. Nowadays, the beach can get quite crowded with difficulty accesing the town due to heavy traffic.

It is a magnificent beach, with blue sea and fine sand. Next to the beach are the Roman ruins of Baelo Claudia and they are spectacular

This is a beautiful beach at the Costa de la Luz. But it's very popular in summer so be there early to have a parking place and if you won't get stuck in the traffic. I think it's better to go here in off season.

We went during a heat wave and it was packed with Spanish tourists. Beautiful, parking tough if you arrive after 11. Food shacks and restaurants very mediocre so bring food! Lots of good shopping from beach attendants walking beach.

A lovely, sandy beach. The strong breezes certainly send the sand flying! Plenty of chiringuitos to visit.

A short drive from Tarifa to this beautiful beach. The sand dune towering over it makes a great back drop and a decent walk with a view

I used to windsurf there many years ago, It's almost always windy, with strong currents. I wouldn't recommend snorkeling, Maybe bringing a good beach tent with stakes would be better, This is a wild coast, known for... More
