Overview

Tarifa is a very famous windsurfing destination, purely for the incredible wind. Tarifa often reaches 40 knots, and that’s not stormy weather, it’s with beautiful clear skies and warm waters. Even with the vast number of windsurfers and kitesurfers visiting each year, an effort has been made to not spoil the traditional Andalucian atmosphere. The ‘white villages’ are beautiful, with numerous traditional restaurants serving tapas, and people flamenco and sevillana dancing until the early hours.

THE WIND CONDITIONS IN TARIFA

The ideal wind is (Poniente), side-onshore from the right. 
It mainly blows in spring and autumn, and in summer as a 
thermal wind, with wind forces of around 3-5 bft. (Levante), comes side-offshore from the left, with wind forces of 6-8 bft. Although the Levante is not the most ideal conditions, our centre at Valdevaqeuros has the safest conditions on the bay. With a sandy sailing area free from rocks, and a big sand bank down-wind, everyone has a feeling of safety, and beginners need not fear drifting off.

THE KITESURF AREAS

There is 7 Km of kitesurfing coast in Tarifa, between the beach at Valdevaqueros and Hurricane, so you can change your spot daily depending on the wind. Hurricane is best for a Levante wind as there is a big sand bank downwind

We have two centers in Tarifa to cater for both wind directions, one at the main kiting area Valdevaqueros, and one at Hurricane beach.

activities

The extra activities to try out are Kitesurfing, SUP, Surfing, Golf, Tennis, Yoga, Rock Climbing, Mountain biking in the beautiful mountains behind Tarifa, horse riding along the beach, and whale watching where you are either guaranteed a sighting or you get free trips until you do! Fairy boats leave several times a day from the harbour in Tarifa, for day trips to Tangier in Morocco. Sevilla, Malaga and Rhonda are typical Andalusian cities nearby Tarifa, where you will find traditional spanish tapas bars and quirky shopping.

nightlife

Tarifa has a wicked night life that really gets rolling at around 1 AM. You can party until the morning and not have to worry about sleeping through the wind as it’s just always there.
