After Tarifa : what other spots around?

Postby kohsamui112 » Mon Jun 19, 2017 10:30 am

Hello,

I will soon finish my world tour by Tarifa!
Do you advise other spots around for the end of June?
I was thinking of Portugal or Essaouira (something accessible by bus)

thanks in advance

Essaouira any day - find your feet in the bay - then go to Sidi & after that Moulay (just avoid low tide)

Tarifa is not great without a car, plus the hassle of getting there. Essaouira is a good, you can walk along the beach from the old town to the kiteing spot. It's cheap and you can stay in a Riad, which are good for solo travellers.

You can get a bus from Marrakesh or there are flights to Essaouira

If you want big waves you can also get a minibus to Sidi for about 80 cents from memory from the old town.

My experience of Portugal, you either need a car or go to Guincho which is a busy city beach. I agree with the TheRussian that Essaouira is a better spot
