Kite Surf School


Affiliated to the Andalusian Sailing Federation, the kite and surf school is at Los Lances Beach, only few minutes walking from your accommodation. We can easily offer you kite surf courses with IKO certified instructors and rentals ( from intermediate level! ) every day, all year long! If needed, we will pick you up every morning at your accommodation to take you to the best daily spot according to your level and wind conditions.


Kite Surf Spots


Los Lances is the most famous spot, a five kilometres long sandy beach extending from the very town centre! At the end of Los Lances is Valdevaqueros, a quieter spot with huge sand dunes. Further up the coast, Bolonia is another superb spot backed by large sand dunes and the Roman ruins of Baleo Claudia, well worth a visit. These spots are also ideal for the practice of windsurfing.


Surf Spots


Although Tarifa owes its reputation to wind and kite surf, there are also excellent surf spots in the area. Right in town, Tarifa’s Balneario beach is a regional classic with a left and right beach break. The coast extending from Tarifa to Cadiz has several further surf spots, the most famous ones being Caños de Meca, next to Trafalgar lighthouse, and El Palmar.



What make the difference between Tarifa and the numerous sea resorts along the Costa da Luz is the unbeatable atmosphere of music, dance, tapas and fun that turned this place a truly ‘legend’ among the world wide kite, surf and windsurf community.. and all thanks to perfect and constant wind conditions together with sunny days throughout the whole year in Tarifa.


“The Wind Capital of Europe”, Tarifa is also the southernmost point of the Old Continent, looking across the Strait of Gibraltar to Morocco and Africa lying only fourty kilometres away. An old Moorish settlement of Roman origins, the old walled-in town is dominated by the Guzman El Bueno medieval castle. Today, Tarifa narrow cobble streets are the meeting point of windsurfers, kite surfers and surfers from across Europe, a melting pot with a unique atmosphere where tradition meets vanguard.


There are many restaurants, surf shops and bars in town, displaying video recordings of the day and other radical sports. The Moskito bar is recommended, where Jorge prepares the best Mojitos and Caipiriñas in town!


A few miles outside town, the Roman ruins of Baleo Claudia in Bolonia, a good kite surf spot as well, are well worth a visit. While in town, hop on one of the fast ferries that cross the strait in about half an hour to Tangier.


Tarifa is the gateway to Los Alcornocales Nature Park, Spain’s largest cork oak forestand one of the largest in the world. It is also Andalucia’s largest wooded area and the best preserved example of the Iberian primeval forest.


Tarifa is also ideally located between the glitz and glamour of the Costa del Sol, on the Mediterranean side in the Malaga province, and the wild, solitary beaches of the Costa de la Luz, on the Atlantic in the province of Cadiz.


The city itself, with many bars of Andalusia and small narrow winding streets typical tapas, offers everything you could wish for. Take a walk around the city, drink coffee in one of its many terraces, enjoy a day at the beach or take part in an exciting program of water sports!
