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 storeys.
There are shops, restaurants, bars, supermarkets along La Barrosa main street and also part of the beach front.
There is also a well-maintained park opposite the apartment which has a children's playground.
There are three supermarkets a short drive away and Novo Sancti Petri has a good-sized commercial centre.
A short walk across the road is a small commercial centre with bars, cafés and shops
