Kite Surf

It´s no use fighting against the wind: make it your ally and enjoy the feeling of flying over the waters of the Altantic Ocean. Not only do millions of migrating birds fly the skies of Tarifa, there are other kinds of birds that float in the air above the beaches, taking advantage of the winds, putting touches of color in a sky that is already tinted in deep blues.
Huge kites that elevate human beings over the horizon and return them to the sea, leaving them to their own wiles among the salt tipped waves. Then, just at the right moment, with perfect inflection and creating arches out of drops of water, pirouettes emerge that would be impossible if weren´t for the complicity of the elements.
To fly and sail at the same time is possible thanks to kite-surfing and to a seacoast like the one that this city that never forgets its roots has.

Wind Surf

Thousands of people from far away lands arrive in Tarifa to witness and participate in a meteorological phenomenon unlike any other. They do what they can to tame the winds of the East, West, North and South that seek refuge in this unique region of Cadiz.
Kilometers of sand and beaches that distill charm provide the perfect scenery for practicing wind-surf - a water sport that requires having enough strength to equal the force of the ocean as it invades the land every second. None the less, it has a hospitable bend and it allows the surf-boards to sail the shores of Tarifa propelled by the wind.
Don´t hesitate to give it a try- it doesn´t matter whether you´ve never before had the chance to enjoy this sport or if you are an expert at it. The sensations are multiplied many fold when you practice it along the coasts of Cadiz.

The Strait of Gibraltar, joining point of two continents, is astounding on the surface; but what can be found underneath the surface of its waters is even more breathtaking.  Divers can witness the shimmer of schools of tiny silver fish or the hypnotic swaying of millions of algae or they can immerse themselves in an ancient port of Phoenician and Roman ships, in the natural underwater pools, among the remains of an early 20th century sunken ship or around the stone walls carved out by tides.
