Believe it or not, Tarifa is a better place in the winter than in the summer! That is, if (kite) surfing is your thing.
Not only is the weather as windy as it needs to be, but during winter time you have the luxury of enjoying empty beaches with no one to stare at you if you were to tumble and fall. Open all year around and with wind all year around too, Tarifa is a surfer’s paradise.
Tarifa has the charm of a great climate, although windy (but you need wind for surfing), of maybe a minimum of 18 degrees celsius in the day. You may even be able to flaunt your bikini (or trunks) at this winter month.
However, if it were to rain we would like you to know that when it rains, it rains heavily. This said, it normally does not rain constantly for a long period of time. In Spain rain is needed, with summer months making the country dry. Rainy days are welcome in Tarifa as it fills up the lagoons, that normally only occur at particularly high tides.
“Tarifa is a small town in the province of Cádiz, Andalusia, on the southernmost coast of Spain. The town is located on theCosta de la Luz (“coast of light”) and across the Straits of Gibraltar facing Morocco.
