SURFING IN THE SOUTHERNMOST POINT OF EUROPE
Phoenician and then Roman, Muslim and then Christian, Tarifa unfolds in small squares, palm trees, monkey puzzle trees and white streets. Its old castle is a national monument and part of its walls and some of its gates are preserved in relatively good condition. Its beaches and sandbanks are a tribute to Epicurus, and although many consider them an exclusive paradise for fans of windsurfing and kitesurfing, we can also find perfect spots for surfing there.
But beware! Here, you can also find good spots for surfing, especially in winter.
EL BALNEARIO :
The Balneario beach is located about 200 meters from the port of Tarifa, right next to the Isla de las Paloma, which separates the Atlantic Ocean from the Mediterranean Sea. It is the most consistent surf spot in Tarifa, perfect for advanced and intermediate level surfers. Right and left of good size and power.
Los Lances beach is a sandy bottom spot with good rights that starts with all tides, as long as the sea is not small. It is an ideal beach to learn to practice surfing that works best with an easterly wind.
Spot on a rock bottom located just in front of the Hurricane Hotel, hence its name. With half tide and east wind you can find good rights that reach sessions of up to three meters, not suitable for beginners.
Spot with a sandy bottom that needs a lot of sea to work. Its right-hand waves are fun, suitable for those who are just starting out.
PLAYA DE BOLONIA, TARIFA
It is located just 15 kilometers from Tarifa, and it is easily reached through a well-signposted deviation that starts from the national road that goes to Cádiz. Bolonia beach is one of the most beautiful in Spain. But if Levante blows and the right swell enters, you may even forget the turquoise color of its waters and the impressive Roman ruins of Baelo Claudia.
