Let's now move to warm southern Spain, where Tarifa reveals itself as a true paradise for surfers and kitesurfers. With its constant winds and endless beaches, Tarifa offers conditions so ideal that it is the location with the largest number of surf schools in the country. Here you can find 10 kilometers of white beaches, the beautiful ones of Playa Chica and Playa de los Lances , wild and uncontaminated nature, and the best conditions in Europe for windsurfing. Also very beautiful are Punta Paloma beach, which is located north of Tarifa and is surmounted by modern windmills lined up on the crests of the hills, and Caleta , just east of the town.
