Tarifa

Tarifa has a deserved rep as the kitesurf Mecca of Europe. There are so many options to kitesurf Tarifa with its wide 10 kilometre stretch of kiteable beach, and Tarifa also has great wind conditions so you can kitesurf all day before you head to the vibrant old town for tapas and Mojitos and then party all night.

Before kiting (and before that, windsurfing) arrived, Tarifa was a quiet fisherman’s town, and it still has that nice relaxed vibe to it. Heading in to the walled old town and wandering around the narrow streets is a fantastic way to spend a windless morning.

When kitesurfing in Tarifa, you'll be sure to meet lots of other Kitesurfers of all abilities. Hanging out on the beach and in the town, you'll be able to share techniques, talk about kitesurfing and soak up the atmosphere of one of the most vibrant Kitesurf towns in Europe. Tarifa is a must on most people Kitesurfing bucket list.

Tarifa is just to the west of Gibraltar and the beginning of the beautiful Costa de la Luz. It is the windiest place in Europe, and on most days you can see the north African coastline.
You can fly to Gibraltar – this is then just 45 minutes away from Tarifa.

Otherwise you can fly to Malaga which is just under two hours away.

Or you can fly to Jerez which is around 90 minutes.

Car hire is super cheap at all of these Mediterranean airports and we would recommend getting a car to ensure you make the most of your time kitesurfing Tarifa.
For kitesurfing Tarifa has a long 10 kilometer stretch of beach which runs from Tarifa town to Valdevaqueros. In the summer months kiting is restricted from Los Lances to Valdevaqueros (June to Mid Sept) but for the rest of the year you have the whole stretch of beach to choose your kitesurfing Tarifa spot. There is also a lagoon at certain tides during the winter months so you have lots of choice and options.

In the summer the water is generally flat, and in the winter you can get swells which bring waves or you can have flat days. The wind is either Poniente, which comes from the sea (so lighter and more consistent), or Levante which comes from the land. This is a hotter wind that can be gusty and strong.
