What we love most is that it's just a three hour flight from London; you'll be there on Friday night in time to hit the bars and easily make it back for Sunday evening. No need to take any time off work. Perfect.

Tarifa is an ideal spot for both beginners and experts and our crew will cater to your ability making sure that you get the most out of your time. You will be taken to the beaches that best suit your skill level and will be provided with all the necessary equipment.

When lessons are over, you can relax and unwind on the beach or head into town. Tarifa is a charming former fishing village with narrow cobble-stone streets, tumbling jasmine and beautiful old colonial houses. There's plenty to explore both by day and night. Settle down in a café and tuck into the delicious local fare, all washed down with plenty of sangria of course. And to cap off the perfect day, retire to your lovely beachside hotel for a late night dip. Hotel Hurricane is the ideal base for your weekend in the sun.

You'll find it hard to drag yourself away on Sunday evening. Just make sure you reach the airport on time otherwise you may have some explaining to do on Monday morning.
