Tarifa has always been special to us. The Kite Metropolis of Europe, if not of the world. Surfer lifestyle, endless party nights in the old town, tapas bars and (adopted) country of many pros – for a reason. Here the wind blows almost non-stop due to the straits of Gibraltar. There aren’t many kiters, who don’t fall in love with Tarifa at first sight.

With the KiteWorldWide Town House Tarifa, we have the perfect accommodation right in the center of the old town. Close by the scene bars and clubs, lovingly furnished and with an own rooftop terrace and community kitchen.

Also you have a guide on site now who is available for you 24/7 and helps you with all your questions.

The kite conditions in Tarifa are sometimes rather ambitious and variable for beginners. At times mild due to the “Poniente” westerly winds but at other times strong and rough due to the “Levante” easterly wind. In the previous years we have learned, that traditional kitesurf courses don’t work here.

In 2016 we offer you a kite school which is exclusive for KiteWorldWide guests. Learn kitesurfing in a relaxed atmosphere with instructors on the familiar KiteWorldWide level.

What’s happening if there isn’t any wind? Wakeboarding, surfing, SUP and/or longboarding – all inclusive.

Of course, also a BBQ on the amazing terrace above the roofs of Tarifa can’t be missed.
Next to that, we hit the clubs and bars with you. Tarifa is and will always be something special! With KiteWorldWide, also newcomers will have an amazing experience in this surfers dream come true…

Kitesurfing in Tarifa

Tarifa is located on the Strait of Gibraltar where the Atlantic and the Mediterranean meet and Europe and Africa are at some points only 14 km away from one another. Due to the strait and the ocean currents, this area is especially warm—which has a jet effect and increases the wind.

During the main summer season (from around July to the middle of September), the beaches are separated into swimming, sunbathing, kitesurfing and kitesurf beginner zones. Therefore we don’t offer this destination at this time of the year. Any other time, so from March until July and September until October, you can kite on any part of the beaches without restrictions. The conditions for a downwinder are perfect at this time of the year and a session or two could be arranged.

Kite Spots

In Tarifa and the surrounding area, there are tons of spots with different conditions for all kitesurf levels. Of course, it’s also possible to kitesurf at places other than our main spot. The KiteWorldWide team is here for you and would love to give you some tips!

Los Lances

Our main spot in Tarifa is at the Los Lances beach. The beach is one of the most beautiful in southern Spain. Here the sand is dazzlingly white and fine—as opposed to other beaches in the south. Two small rivers run parallel to the beach and make small lagoons for kitesurfing at high tide.

Wind

In Tarifa, on the Costa de la Luz, there are different classes of winds. The best known are the levante and the poniente.

The levante is a strong, warm wind from the east. It can work itself up to a wind speed of 8 Bft after a few days, but is usually around 6-7 Bft.

The poniente is the best wind for kitesurfers. It blows at a wind speed of about 6 Bft from the west onshore side to the city beach and is a little cooler than the levante. Thanks to this wind, the temperature in Tarifa stays pretty nice in the middle of the summer. A little farther out to sea, it carries small swells with it.

Accommodation: The KiteWorldWide Townhouse

KiteWorldWide Tarifa Townhouse

The townhouse is located in the middle of the historic district of Tarifa. It is built in an andalusian style. Its highlight is the atrium in the middle of the house and the beautiful open courtyard.

Before, people were only able to rent the upper part of the house in total (4 bedrooms, kitchen and rooftop terrace). Now we rent out the rooms individually and people can use the common areas.

You will find three studios on the ground floor with different sizes. Every studio comes with a bathroom and a little kitchenette.
Furthermore there are double rooms with king-sized beds (large double beds) and three rooms each with two double beds. Every room is decorated differently with attention to detail and has an individual bathroom.

You`ll have access to the common room (kitchen and living room) and the breathtaking roof terrace with a great view over the whole town and the sea.

The “Master Bedroom” comes with its own balcony.

In a familiar atmosphere you can spent lots of nights chatting with other Kiters and enyoing the spanish flair while having a dinner together or a bbq on the roof terrace.

Please note that our accommodation is located right in the centre of the old town with lots of cozy bars and restaurants, thus in the summer months (especially in August) it might get louder at night.

The largest studio, Studio 1, has a bathroom with bathtub and shower, a fully equipped kitchen, and direct access to the community courtyard.

The Studio 2 is situated downstairs in the Town House and a bit smaller than the other apartments. With two single beds it’s ideal for people who travel alone or for two friends who don’t need much space.

The third studio, Studio 3, along with its own kitchen and bathroom has a private courtyard with seats.

Alternative activites

Tangier

Even if you can see the African coast some days, the 14km are a little far to swim. Its great to walk around the traditional markets and go shopping in typical small shops. For an excursion to the other continent, it’s better to take the ferries from Tarifa which cross the Strait of Gibraltar in 35 minutes.

Gibraltar

Gibraltar is easy accessible by rental car and really worth a visit. Under the sovereignty of the United Kingdom of Great Britain and Northern Ireland, this overseas territory is only 6.5km². Upon arrival, it is very important that you have valid ID cards!

From the European Point, the southernmost point of Gibraltar, you have an overwhelming view of the African and Spanish coastline, and of the strait of Gibraltar. At the Rock of Gibraltar are the only in natural enviroment living apes in Europe.

Whales & Dolphins

A real highlight is the whales and dolphins that you can see around the coast of Tarifa. On this tour, you’ll take a boat onto the water and check out the home of different dolphin species: common dolphin, striped dolphin, bottlenose dolphin, and porpoises. With a little luck, you’ll see some swordfish, sperm whales, or finbacks swimming their way between the Atlantic and the Mediterranean Sea through the Strait of Gibraltar.

Paragliding

If kiteloops are not high enough for you, take a flight and enjoy the faszinating view over Tarifa to the African coast.

Horse riding

Tarifa is not only a kitesurfers paradise. Horse trails through the spectacular dunes of Punta Paloma, in the Natural Park of El Estrecho, with Africa on the horizon are fantastic. You will experience all the elements of nature: fauna, flora, sea, mountains, wind….
