A POPULAR beach in Spain has been hiding a whopping secret.

From pretty plazas to beautiful beaches, the Spanish seaside town of Cadiz has a bit of everything – including a beach harbouring a hidden truth.

Duna de Bolonia is one of the largest sand dunes in Europe stretching to 30m high and 200m wide.

Situated right on this famous coastline are the lesser-known Roman ruins of Baelo Claudia.

According to BBC Travel, Duna de Bolonia is considered to be one of Spain's best-preserved Roman settlements, the site dates all the way back to the 2nd Century.

Despite its longstanding history, most tourists don't even know that they exist.

Entry into the ruins costs €1.50 (it's free for EU citizens) and visitors can expect to see an ancient bath house, a theatre, temple and other ancient buildings.

In the last few years, experts have uncovered ancient burial tombs too, so it's likely plenty more secrets lie beneath the sandy depths.

Spain is home to plenty of other secrets too – including some beaches that aren't crawling with tourists.

One of those beaches is Cala Pedrosa in Costa Brava, this stonycove is an 800m walk from the main road to get to in, close to the border of France.
