The perfect beach day in Tarifa

Tarifa is a small town in the province of Cádiz, on the southernmost coast of Spain. It is the last stop in Spain before you reach Morocco. The city has beautiful beaches and a warm Mediterranean climate. It is known as one of the world's most popular destinations for wind sports.

Must see
If you are looking for a nice and relaxing day at the beach there is one spot you cannot miss in Tarifa: Punta Paloma! This beach is famous for its huge, golden sand dune. The views from the top of the sand dune are amazing. It is a lot of fun to climb the steep dune and then run down towards the beach.  Bring your towel and some sunscreen and you will definitely have a wonderful day. To make your relaxing day complete you can go to the very western end of the beach. Here you can lather yourself up in a natural mud bath.

Must experience
This Spanish city is world famous for its winds all year round. This creates excellent conditions for kitesurfing and wind surfing. Tarifa is probably the best place to learn kitesurfing in Spain. Because of the endless sandy beaches kite lessons in Tarifa are just perfect for every level. There are a few surfing schools in the city where you can sign up for different types of classes. Summers in Tarifa are cooler than in most of the country. The average temperature in the hottest month, August, is only 24 degrees Celsius. However, in August the city is packed with tourists so if you want to enjoy a more quiet Kite-experience you should avoid this time of the year.
