“Amazing beach next to the ruins”
Review of Bolonia Beach

Reviewed 29 April 2014

15 minutes past Tarifa, is this amazing beach - the same white soft sand but with the added bonus of a massive sand dune (which the kids love to trek up and roll down). Seriously this is a big dune which will take 20 minutes to walk up.

The beach is next to Baelo Claudia - (apparently) the most preserved Roman Village outside of Italy - these ruins are magnificent and well worth the journey (entrance was free because we were British,, not sure why though)

What a beautiful beach - I was there with my son who lives in Gibraltar a couple of days ago. The beach is about 14 miles by road from Tarifa - it is about 4 kilometres in length, is unspoiled and stretches away to an impressive sand dune at one end. It is backed by natural countryside stretching up to the backdrop of the mountains. There are 2 chiringuitos where you can spend time relaxing and drinking and talking. Then there is the added attraction of the remains of the Roman town of Baelo Claudia just off the beach which are very interesting to visit. The day we were there there was a small market just back from the beach.

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

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.
