Summer guide: Three-day trip to Tarifa “Mojo Style”
Tarifa is a summer paradise only in the province of Cadíz on Costa de la Luz, only one hour and twenty minutes from Marbella and just under two hours from Málaga airport.
Mr Mo and Mr Jo packed their bags and got behind the wheel to drive down to the so-called surfer’s paradise to show you what to do and where to go in Tarifa to make the most of a three-day trip, “Mojo Style”, of course.
One of the world’s most popular destinations for kitesurfing
Tarifa is located on Costa de la Luz. The area is famous for its long, white, and beautiful beaches facing the Atlantic Ocean, where you will most often see a blue sky full of kites; Tarifa is known for its kitesurfing due to the windy and warm climate. Tarifa is one of the world’s most popular destinations for wind sports.
Per Mønsted and Jacob Johansen went to see what all the fuss was about.
First, they went to Playa de Valdevaqueros beach to learn how to kitesurf at the kitesurf school Ion Club Tarifa, which teaches you the basics of kitesurfing so you can go out in the water on your own in no time.
Warning: Kitesurfing is not as easy as it looks! But it is fun and good exercise and a fantastic experience to try in one of the most popular places in the world. And as you can see in the video, practice makes perfect.
After hours of learning how to kitesurf, the two Mojo-founders go to rest and recharge with delicious food and refreshments at the well-acknowledged BiBo Beach House Tarifa, which is one of Dani García’s trendy restaurants located right on Valdevaqueros beach.
BiBo Beach House Tarifa is 100 % Mojo Approved and a must on your list, if you want to visit Tarifa “Mojo Style”.
It is the place to go for a tasty lunch as a break from the beach activities, a nice dinner in the evening, or even an all-day summer party on the beach. Here, you can also enjoy the breathtaking sunset on Costa de la Luz.
