    A beach very pretty with a dune, not as spectacular as the Bologna, and where there is much fond of kitesurfing. Beside a spectacular bar, lying, with young people. Recommended 100 x 100.

    Huge, clean beach, a surfer's paradise for the strong wind that sometimes can give you some discomfort. The sand gets very hot, so you can walk around barefoot or run down the sand dunes. Good and cheap the small restaurant on the beach.

    To pass on the road and see the candles have decided to stay awhile there. It is spectacular to see that ballet of candles, both by air and water. Worth a go, because that is the essence of Tarifa. That Yes, it is not a very suitable for the bath area, since there is a lot of traffic from people with tables and it can be dangerous, but is all signposted warning topic. It is worth to go.
