“Kitesurfing hot spot”
4 of 5 bubbles 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 bubbles 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 bubbles Reviewed September 1, 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.

“What an amazing beach!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 8, 2013

We were there on holiday and for 2 days we sent our kids to try the kite surfing. The beach is enormously wide, you cannot see the sea when you entering the beach. In fact all beaches in Tarifa are wide.
Because wide, it is not crowded at all.
This is what I liked the most at all the beaches here, they are wild, and sometimes there is no one on them just you and the ocean
