Tarifa it the most south point of Europe. In the morning you can see the sunrise over the Mediterranean Sea, in 15km distance at the horzion you see Africa and in the evening the sun sets into the Atlantik
You will find out Tarifa is a paradise for outdoorsports and naturefriends. Endless beaches and mountain peaks which reach down until the beach, whales crossing the Strait fo Gibraltar and an unique atmosphere are just a few highlights which make Tarifa to a very special place.
Our Event week in Tarifa is a mixture of sports, culture, relaxation and especially joy and fun in a group with likeminded people. It is ideal for everybody who is interested in exercising and moving their bodys aswell as getting to know the country and people. We will explore the countryside with bikes, paddle along the beautiful beaches on a Stand up Paddle Board and sail through the Strait of Gibralter... Just to mention some of our activities ;)

Probably the cheapest way to get to Tarifa is to fly towards Malaga (AGP). There are more airports in Jerez, Sevilla and Gibraltar but they aren't used to fly to as frequently as Malaga which explains why prices to those aiports are clearly more expensive.
The distance from the airport of Malaga to Tarifa is around 180 kilometres.There are official offers of shuttle services but they are so expensive that they are not interesting at all. The two realistic ways to get to Tarifa is either by public transport like a bus or by renting a car.
The bus connection from Malaga to Tarifa will go to Marbella first, has the second stop in Algeciras before heading to the direction of Tarifa. This particular trip will take about 3 to 4 hours when you include changing busses and easily costs around 20 euros.
More information about the bus connections you can find on: Avanza Bus
Our reccommendation however is to rent a car. The prices to rent a car in Malaga for the entire period are very cheap and in the off-season totally unbeatable.

The homebase of Watersports Training for us is a place where we return to after our events and a place where our surf hostel is located, Tarifa / Spain.
The hostel is situated right in the middle of the Nature Park, 100m distance to the shore and right in front of the Kiteboarding Lagoon in Tarifa. A perfect place to call home and a great possibility for all our guest to come and visit and share some quality time on the water with us.
At the moment we do have 7 rooms available. 5 double rooms and 2 family rooms. Each room has an ensuite bathroom, shower and toilet as well as a little fridge, a safe and has direct access to the the terrasse and gardens.
In addition theres a community room with a fully equipped kitchen, open fireplace and a big table inside and outside. The Laguna Beach is made by Surfers and for Surfers, so the atmosphere is relaxed and friendly. Theres plenty of space in the gardens to wash and store your equipment, free wifi and two BBQs. Free Internet is available on the entire property as well as plenty of space to park your car.
The two bigger rooms we have are ideal for groups or families. Each family room is divided into two separate rooms and one bathroom. Most of our guests are water sport or outdoor fanatics so the atmosphere is usually quite relax
A typical day during our Tarifa event could look like this:
For the earlybirds our programm starts just before breakfast with an early morning yoga or beach workout session. Afterwards we will enjoy breakfast and rent out bikes to have a ride through the Parque de Estrecho, a huge nationalpark which surrounds the Strait of Gibraltar.
In the afternoon we will relax at the beach of Valdevaqueros. If you want, you could go Stand up Paddling or have a drink in one of the most famous beach bars in Spain - Tumbao.
For dinner we will go all togehter into the old town of Tarifa to one of the typical spanish Tapas restaurants before we enjoy the rest of the night in one of the countless bars.
"We spent a few weeks at the Laguna Beach apartments in Tarifa in June/ July 2017 and we thoroughly enjoyed our stay. The apartments are ideally located just outside of Tarifa town, but remain within walking distance. This proved to be a great location for getting in to town, but also gave us the space we needed for all our kite gear and parking. The accommodation is clean, and quiet and Chris (plus his staff) is always on hand to help out. Highly recommend staying here, we will be back in the near future.
"Thanks to Chris and his team at Watersports Training. What a buzz, can´t recommend this event enough. A true once in a lifetime experience, how lucky were we with every condition working with us :)
We will never forget this experience and were truly blessed to have had such a great time in Tarifa Anyone thinking about doing it, don't think about it - just do it!"
