At the southern end of the Costa de la Luz is an area of beautiful, windswept beaches with fine white sand. These start in Tarifa and extend for many km to the northwest. Due to the strong winds conditions for sports such as windsurfing and kitesurfing are ideal hre. In fact the area around Tarifa is a wind- and kitesurfing Mecca and attracts a large number of tourists every year. Kitesurfing is a watersport in which a kitesurfer is riding across the sea on a small surfboard, propelled by wind pushing a large kite. The photos below were taken near a kitesurfing school north of Tarifa. This beach was a hive of activity with many kitesurfers crisscrossing the sea at high speed and even more relaxing on the beach. Quite a few cool people, both male and female.
