KitesurfingEmbrace Tarifa's most popular water sports, and enjoy the ocean.
Why do it?
A friend once described kitesurfing as ‘like having your own little rocketship in a backpack’, and who wouldn’t want one of those!
Kitesurfing has become the fastest growing extreme sport in the last 10 years. It is exhilarating and easier to learn than most other water sports keeping you occupied on the beach or water in most wind conditions.
From the moment you launch your first kite you will be hooked!
Where do we do it?
Tarifa has two beaches zoned (June to September) for Kitesurfing; Los Lances and Valdavaqueros. When the wind blows from the West (Poniente) Los Lances is the spot, when it blows from the East (Levante) Valdavaqueros is the only safe option.
Los Lances Kiting zone is approximately 4km from Tarifa town, where as Valdavaqueros is near the big sand dune approximately 10km from main town Tarifa. It is a short and direct drive from the town and there is plenty of free parking at both spots.
If you do not have a hire car there is an hourly bus which drops off at the camping 150m from Valdavaqueros.
When can I do it?
The best time of year is from March through to October with the busiest time on the water being July and August.
