  • Probably one of the best beaches in Cadiz, if we value it globally. There are prettier ones like Bologna's with its dune (it's farther from civilization, and it's harder to access, and worse guarded); the beaches of Zahara, which have more wind, as well as those of Tarifa. or Conil's to which I would also give a very high note.... but the highest average grade is for the Barrosa, by the whole (accesses, location, views, tranquility...).

  • Better to travel couple oh hours from Malaga airport to get to this beach. It is much cleaner, sand is golden.  more »

  • The beach sand and the sea are very clean. There are great free showers and changing rooms. Fantastic beach overall.
  • The most wonderful beach, especially for children as it slopes so gently. It is quite windy so lots of waves but i seriously suggest long hair is tied back or it will be stuck to your sun lotioned face and lip balm. Glorious sunsets here too. We went in October, the sea was warm and the beach almost deserted. Perfect. Excellent free parking and small play areas dotted about.
