“Good surf”
Reviewed May 17, 2013

They have a place to rent surf boards and wetsuits. The beach is clean and has nice waves to surf -even though Tarifa is known for its kite and windsurf. It was really fun.

“My favourite beach near Tarifa”
Reviewed March 4, 2013

Epic wide, large and long beach. Perfect for kite surfing. But you can also swim, the waves are rarely strong enough to be dangerous. The beach is so long that you can access it in various points. You can find kite surfing schools and restaurants.

I like the water in this area because it is a rare fusion of sea and ocean, you can feel the deep ocean burble and breath but at the same time the waves are docile and the temperature is still good for a long swim.

“between Mediterranean and Atlantic...”
Reviewed January 23, 2013

When you'll get there, you will be speechless.
And your heart'll begin to pulse. For the first time in your whole life.
To me, it has been love at first sight.
I soon fell in love with Tarifa and its Playa de Los Lances.
Here, you can swim, bathe (water is warmer than in the nearest Playa Chica in the Mediterranean sea!). You can stay half a day staring at the people doing kite-surf. You can run for 7 kilometres to reach the next beach of Valdevaqueros.
The only thing to do is to check the wheather forecasts before the departure (calling for info the Tourist Office in Tarifa), in order to not get there in a week when the wind of LEVANTE is blowing, because in that case, it's impossibile to stay on the beach, because of the wind storms.
