                      A word about

                      ION CLUB Tarifa

                      Tarifa- the wind capital of Europe. Right at the beginning of the beautiful Costa de la Luz, where the Atlantic ocean meets the Mediterranean sea and Europe meets Africa, you can find the mecca for all water enthusiasts. With it’s location, this spot offers wind and sun for almost 300 days a year and makes it the best kitesurfing, wingsurf and windsurfing destination in the world.

                      There are two predominant winds in Tarifa- LEVANTE and PONIENTE. Levante is a warm, dry and strong wind, blowing from the east (“levantar” in Spanish means “to rise”, as the sun rises in the east) and can get up to the speed of 30- 40 knots. Poniente is blowing from the opposite direction, from the west (in Spanish “poner” means “to set”, as the sun sets in the west) and is a lighter, colder and moist wind blowing onshore. The combination of these two winds make Tarifa a perfect playground for anybody, who wants to enjoy the wind and he waves.

                      BEST PERIODS

                      April, May, June, July, August, September, October

                      WIND

                      During Summer time the dominating wind is Levante blowing from East (cross offshore from the left), in Autumn and Spring it is Poniente blowing from West (sideshore to cross onshore from the right).

                      WAVES

                      HOW TO GET TO ION CLUB TARIFA?

                      From Tarifa to ION CLUB

                      Leave Tarifa town by the Roundabout close to Mercadona and Dia supermarket. To get onto the N340, take a turn to the left, direction beach. Stay on this street for around 10 minutes. You will pass a Gas station, Hotel Hurricane and Camping Valdevaqueros. Keep driving for another 200 metres and just after the restaurant yellow and black house« ZERO 9 » turn left before the next curve and continue all the way to the beach parking of ION CLUB Tarifa and BiBo Beach House right in front of you.

                      From Jerez to Tarifa

                      Follow the A-381 in the direction of A-390 for about 24 km and take the exit 24 and leave A-381. Take the A-396 in the direction of N-340/E5 for about 22 km and then take left on the N-340/E5 (follow the signs saying "Tarifa/Algeciras") and keep driving for about 40 km. Once you pass the village of Facinas, almost reaching Tarifa, you will see signs to « Punta Paloma » to the right.
