La Barrosa is a popular Spanish holiday resort located in the Cadiz province of the Costa de la Luz, Spain. It is a beach resort with a chilled-out atmosphere in the winter and a great buzz in the summer when all the Spaniards come down from mainland Spain.
The resort is located near the southern-most tip of Spain facing the Atlantic Ocean so the lovely breeze in the summer time takes the edge of the heat.
The resort has strict building regulations like the rest of the Costa de la Luz coast-line and there are no buildings above 3 stories.
There are shops, restaurants, bars and cafes along La Barrosa main street and also part of the beach front.
There are three supermarkets a short drive away and Novo Sancti Petri has a good-sized commercial centre.
There are a number of airports in the area to fly to.
