Playa de Bolonia is beautiful! A very natural untouched beach which is exactly the type I prefer. It was early May so there was nobody on the beach at all. Perhaps one or two kitesurfers despite the fact it was very windy. We parked our car at the public grass lot steps from the beach and began our walk along the boardwalk towards the West end of the beach where you can see the dunes rising in the distance. Here are some photos to give you an idea of what you can see.
Below we took in the view of the entire Moroccan and Spanish coast from a rocky edge.
After we walked the entire beach and up into the pine forest and back to the car we drove up to the top of the nearby mountain. You can see the road we took in the bottom of the photo that essentially came from the ruins. You can just keep driving up, you’ll pass a few houses on the road, keep on going to the very top and have a great view down.
Above we are part way along the boardwalk. It wasn’t as cold as it looks, just very windy.
Above are the ruins of the Roman town of Baelo Claudia the most intact set of Roman ruins found in Spain to date.

Below is a shot of fishing boats scattered on the beach, and a great view of the extensive dunes to the West.

We walked up from the board walk int0 the pine trees.
Below, we hit a clearing. A very peaceful spot.
Near the clearing, we popped out to the middle of the dunes.

Here we have one of the many fishing boats left on the beach by the locals.
