The beach, the dunes and the Roman city of Baelo Claudia
In the Natural Park del Estrecho you will find the beautiful beach of Bolonia, the adjacent dune and several ruins of the Roman city of Baelo Claudia. So in one day you can swim, take a short hike and walk through the ancient Roman ruins. In addition, it is a place outside the main tourist circuits of Andalusia
Cala de roche, Spain
The small, bay and sandy beach of Cala de Roche is located near the historic city of Cádiz.
Road to Bologna
From the main road N340 leading from Tarifa to Conil de la Frontera and continue to El Lentiscal (after 14km from Tarifa). Following this narrow dead end road, it is about seven kilometers to the sea. A smaller mountain pass awaits you, about 200 meters above sea level and the surrounding landscape similar to Ireland rather than Spain
Mountains behind the beach
Thanks to the nature park and the remains of Roman monuments, the western part of the beach is without any construction, which is great. The surrounding limestone mountains are also worth a look.
In addition to swimming, you can go to the local attraction – a tens of meters high dune
Ascent to the dune
The local dune has engulfed a number of trees, sometimes you see a piece of tree crown protruding somewhere. It's quite an interesting mini desert.
View from the dune
However, the tiring climb on the sand is worth it. From the dune you can see the whole bay of Bolonia and the small mountain range Loma de San Barolomé behind it. From this mountain there could be a great view of the surroundings
The Roman city of Baelo Claudia
Right next to the beach are quite extensive ruins of the Roman city of Baelo Claudia
View of the theater
Here, of course, there is a small Roman theater
