Cádiz is open to both the Atlantic and the Mediterranean Sea offering ideal surf spots and plenty of (kite) surf camps around. Andalusia and Cádiz are famous for their wind and kitesurfing, thanks to its two wind directions from east and west.
Cádiz has some great surf spots, like El Palmar and Playa de Los Lances suitable for all surf levels. The main surfing coastline starts in Cádiz and runs all the way down to Tarifa, where both the swell and the wind are strongest.
The best time to surf in Cádiz is in summer for beginners and in the fall to spring for advanced surfers. While in summer some beaches may set certain time sets for surfing, to give bathing guests some space in the ocean, the waves are perfect for those who just want to learn how to surf. From the fall to spring, the swell is consistent and the swells rise up to 2 meters.
Fancy a party? Make sure to be there around the Cádiz Carnaval, a 11-day street party full of costumes and originality, and second in fame to Rio’s Carnaval. Cádiz is a great city to explore during the night. Where an evening usually starts with some tapas and dinner on one of their main historic squares around Punta de San Felipe and Paseo Marítimo, the city gives you plenty of opportunities to dance the night away until dawn in the many clubs and bars around. Shaped by the many cultures housed in Cádiz, the local cuisine offers a great variety. Cádiz is the land of shrimp cakes, ancient tuna almadrabas, and world-famous sherry wines. Make sure to try some of their local specialties: cold salmorejo, dorada, and tortillitas de camarones.
