This kitespot is about 20 kilometers, north of Tarifa. The southern part of the beach of Bolonia is very popular among kitesurfers and windsurfers. The wind is not as strong as it is normally on the beaches of Tarifa, but many people still prefer to come here when Tarifa is very crowded.

It is one of the best beaches of the coast of Cadiz, famous for its great dune and declared a natural monument. It stretches along 7 kilometers of golden sands and waters of a very intense blue.
