Tarifa is located on the southernmost tip of the European continent, where the Strait of Gibraltar and the African coast are so close that they almost touch. Due to the jet effect of the Strait the winds get additional force and acceleration so that they easily reach up to 8 Beaufort on top days. No doubt Tarifa is one of the best spots in Europe with almost 100% wind guarantee. However, you are never alone here, in July and August the beaches are packed with wind- and kitesurfers. During summer time the dominating wind is the Levante blowing from the east (cross offshore from the left), in autumn and spring it is the Poniente blowing from the west (sideshore to cross onshore).
