Playa de Los Lances Norte is the spot that made Tarifa famous. It’s a white sand beach, stretching into the distance to Valdevaqueros in the north, with kilometres of undisturbed, natural landscape and perfectly safe conditions for kitesurfing – no rocks, no reefs, no obstructions. There is more room than you could possibly need to launch and land, and the Poniente wind from the Atlantic blows cross on shore. Perfect.
The Levante blows cross off shore here, but in the summer (15th June to 15th September) that is not a problem thanks to the magnificent safety boat service provided by the Tarifa Sea Angels. For a small fee you are completely covered by their wonderfuly safety boat service if you get into any difficulties.
The water here can become choppy at times, which can make it challenging for beginners, but there is a lagoon to use at high tide if you’re not confident in the sea conditions. As with all the more popular spots, there are zones for different activities – respect them so that everyone can have a good time!
There’s plenty of parking and a couple of chiringuitos, so head down and enjoy yourself! 😀
Ideal wind: Any wind in summer, Poniente (West) when the Sea Angels safety boats aren’t there.
Good things nearby: Chirinquito Agua for drinks and food
Getting there: Just walk down the beach about 1 km from the town. Or drive down to the football stadium car park if your kit is too heavy.
