LOCATION & GETTING HERE
Tarifa is a small town in the province of Cadiz, Andalucia, on the southernmost coast of Spain. The town is located in the “Costa de la Luz” and across the Straits of Gibraltar facing the moroccan coast. Well known as the Europe Capital of Wind!
The city of Tarifa flow through the waters of Mediterrean Sea and Atlantic Ocean; Morocco is visibile with naked eye because just 14 km of sea divide the two continents.

At the end of the “Los Lances” beach, the winds blowing for years and years, formed an incredible sand dune as well known as the “Duna de Valdevaqueros”. Valdevaqueros is the farest beach of Tarifa’s landscape.

Flow thorough the east from the Mediterrean Sea, flow thorough the west from the Atlantic Ocean, the city of Tarifa is separate from the Moroccan coast just from 15 kms of water.

The air mass passing through the two continents start a Venturi Effect that let winds blow up to 50 or more knots. That’s why Tarifa is one of the most impressive Kitesurfing and Surfing spots of Europe.
