The wind from the Atlantic blows strong and sure, particularly as it 'necks' through the narrow gap between Spain and Morocco where Tarifa is situated. You will see no less than 100 plus kitesurfers on the water carving it up. They come from all over the world, and free camp by the beaches along the coast.

There is also a bit of rock climbing on the cliffs around San Bartolo, but it's fairly limited although of more moderate grades than you'll find elsewhere like El Chorro. All single pitch however.

I have to say I much prefer the Atlantic beaches compared to the Mediterranean ones in this part of Spain. They feel more spacious and although the water is cooler the beaches are generally cleaner. The great thing about this beach is that there is also some fantastic Roman ruins to visit provided the weather isn’t too hot. Already had a couple of really great days here.

We stated in Tarifa but on recommendation decided to cycle to this beach and it is glorious. I wouldn’t recommend the cycle as it is very hilly once you leave the main road but it is spectacular

What a beach, sand and water to die for!

I would go back here swimming in the sea was just unreal clear, waves and cooling!

Beautiful and quiet beach, loved it! If you are looking for a beach that is not crowded but peaceful and stunning, this is definitely one! And nice waves!
