Tarifa is renowned worldwide for its strong winds, making it a privileged location to enjoy certain water sports. But not all is wind and kitesurf at Tarifa.

When local tarifeños want to enjoy a calm day at the beach, many choose Playa Chica. Away from the kites and boards, it is the perfect place to relax and enjoy the sun.

The most westward beach of the Mediterranean, it is a 75-meter strip of white sand. It is also the closest beach to Tarifa town. The port sits on its larboard, Morocco is visible just a few kilometers away, the pier separates it from the Atlantic on starboard, and one can see the peninsula where Punta de Tarifa, Europe’s most southern point, sits at the end of its bay.

While rather urban, its surroundings are rich. Its waters, cold and transparent, are surrounded by rocks and make it a great place to dive and snorkel.


When the wind from the east hits, el levante, enjoy Playa Chica!
