Tarifa: The wind capital of Europe

Located at the southern-most tip of Spain, and only 11km from Morocco. It is this proximity between the two continents that gives Tarifa its legendary number of windy days per year, due to the wind being squeezed between the two land masses through the straits of Gibraltar. Also being the very south of Spain - it is much warmer than the UK, Ireland and Northern Europe! 


Tarifa - the Town.

It is a small, laid-back town which attracts people from all parts of the globe. Many come for Europe's best kite and windsurfing conditions, others simply to relax in some of the medieval old town's bars, cafes and chill lounges. In the summer months the narrow streets really come alive both day and night, offering a wealth of culinary and cocktail delights, good music, and an unbeatable party atmosphere. Throughout the year, this small town has a great community spirit, and you will instantly feel welcomed and amongst friends.


Tarifa - Wind

Levante & Poniente - two of the most common words in and around town (well, maybe after "Mojito"), are the prevailing wind directions. Poniente is the westerly wind, and Levante easterly. One of these winds will settle in and blow from a few days up to a few weeks, then (after normally a day's respite) the other one takes over. This gives Tarifa over 300 windy days a year.


Tarifa - Beaches

Right in the town and stretching for 10km west is the beautiful wide, open Los Lances beach. This is a perfect spot in Poniente winds. Lots of space to learn and practise on the beach and in the water. If the wind is blowing Levante we have many possiblities depending on the strength of the wind, including Valdevaqueros, Getares and Palmones, all a short drive away. There are other beaches further afield which can give us the chance to kite on days when the wind is too strong here in Tarifa.


Accommodation

 - High Flyers House is a short walk from town with easy access to all the beaches. It is a spacious duplex apartment with 3 bedrooms, 2 bathrooms, large lounge equipped with uk sat tv and ipod docking sound system and kitchen, large garage equipment store and roof terrace BBQ area.


You will be sharing the apartment with the other guests, which helps make a really friendly and relaxed atmosphere ..... Most people go home having made new friends!


There is a large, fully equiped kitchen. So if you are trying to watch the pennies or simply feel too shattered to head into town why not use it to cook your own meals in the evenings.

All this for £750 per head
