Location

La Barrosa Beach in Chiclana de la Frontera.

This fine gold sand beach, extending approximately 6 km, is clearly divided into two different parts. The first area, the seafront promenade, can be considered as a  urban beach with a pedestrian walkway, car parks, restaurants, chiringuitos (beach bars)... However, the second part, which spreads from the former promenade until the "Torre del Puerco", southern limit of Chiclana´ s coastline, features a high ecological value, formed by pine woods, dunes giving it the aspect of a wild beach.
