SPAIN: BOLONIA BEACH AND TARIFA IN CADIZ

After visiting Arcos de la Frontera and Zahara de los Atunes, our third day began in Playa Bolonia after having driven for 30min. The day was lovely and there we enjoyed the fabulous landscape of this beach. We also visited the remains of Baelo Claudia. In the afternoon we enjoyed the impressive views of Africa from Tarifa.
