La Barrosa Beach is a beautiful fine sandy beach stretching for 8km from La Barrosa in the north to Roche in the south and is just a 15 minute walk from Casa Isa Elena.
La Barossa Beach was merited as one of Spain’s Best Beaches by the Sunday Times Travel Magazine. Awarded with a Blue Flag for cleanliness, this beach is split between a busy, family area and a strip of virgin sand, where you can take your book and enjoy peace and tranquillity with very few people around you. Sunsets are spectacular on this west facing beach.
The area is renowned for its water sports. The Atlantic Ocean and the Levante winds that blow in make conditions fabulous for kitesurfing, windsurfing, sailing, etc.
Unknown by non-Spanish visitors until recently, the 5km long beach of El Palmar is becoming more popular for its laid-back atmosphere and unspoiled landscape. The dunes and foliage are being carefully preserved with elegant solid wooden walkways leading to the beach. The sand is golden and the waves popular with surfers.
El Palmar is about a 20-25 minute drive from Casa Isa Elena
Playa La Fontanilla
Playa La Fontanilla is the most popular beach for families in this area as it is directly in front of Conil De La Frontera town centre. It is a beautiful wide sweep of white sand backed by sand dunes (in the northern part) that stretches for around 2km. There is a moderate tide. The beach is fully equipped with showers, toilets, changing rooms, a red cross post, lifeguards during the summer, sun loungers and parasols for hire and parking. Playa Los Bateles is a continuation from the southern part of La Fontanilla. Playa Castilnovo is a further continuation of Los Bateles and is a practically untouched rural beach with strong winds that make perfect windsurfing conditions. The ancient Torre de Castilnovo is a landmark situated halfway along the beach.
Playa La Fontanilla is about a 15 minute drive from Casa Isa Elena
