“The place to launch your kite!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 8, 2014

Kitesurf beach. Wonderful beach but gets real busy with kites so if you are not a kitesurfer take note.
There are designated areas where kites are not allowed to come on land so its safe for small kids in these areas. Make sure you dont let your small kids play in the kite zone as it can be very dangerous for them as the kite schools are busy there and people who learn make lots of mistakes so kites fall out of the sky and the kite lines can cut you badly.

“Kitesurfing hot spot”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 30, 2013

Busy with schools, you have to take a bit of a walk towards Tarifa before it gets quiet enough not to have beginners all over you, but the wind is there often and probably the hardest blowing place here for miles around. The boardwalk next to beachclub Agua has a compressor which saves you from pumping up a kite yourself!

“Very nice beach”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed September 5, 2013

Wide beach with fine white sand and clear water. Starting point of the awesome Atlantic beaches west of Tarifa and it also has a good view of the lighthouse and old fortress. You cand always swith to the Mediterranean side of town and take a dip in another sea just 100m away.

“Stunning Beach - Playa de Los Lances”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 2, 2013 via mobile

Stunning and beautiful beach with clear waters and Andalucia mountains in background. Just check weather forecast for wind speed and direction prior to going to avoid sandstorms! The Tarifa end of the beach is where the kite surfers are and usually windy but we went further north (past land kites) which was calmest. Car park very reasonable. Plenty of beach bars and restaurants.
