Europe’s kite Mecca has an all year around wind season, predominantly with prevailing winds Poniente and Levante. These wind directions take turn to power the kites most days of the week. If you’re planning a trip to Tarifa you can go any time of the year, but May to September has a lot more sun and warm weather.

This small town has been a water sports heaven for decades thanks to its location, wind stats, hot weather and good vibes. In the summer the areas where you are allowed to kitesurf are reduced, and it can get very busy. But the lure isn’t only in the kiting when it comes to Tarifa. You’ll have just as much fun out of the water as in it. The après-kite, the parties, the food and the sun will make sure of that.
