If surfing were a color, it would be the new black. A sport that originated on the Pacific islands, surfing is now one of the most popular in the world.

Surfing is so much more than a sport. These days, surfing is a way of life for many. Not only is it excellent exercise for both mind and body, it allows you to celebrate life itself by being in such close contact with the water and working at one with nature. Surfers have claimed to be high on life after catching the perfect wave and can share their love for their sport with the vast community of fellow surfers and followers.

The coast of Cádiz is an absolute sanctuary for surfers. Hundreds, if not thousands, of surfers come to these beaches every year to enjoy to waves and improve their skills. In particular, the beaches of El Palmar, Tarifa and Zahara de los Atunes have often perfect conditions for the sport. If you simply want to get out on the water and enjoy yourself, unlike kitesufing, surfing is a sport that can be learned quite easily and quickly and there are schools all along the coast. So if you want to hire a board and wetsuit and get straight out there, or if you want to learn from scratch, whatever your age, you can do it here.

In this area, we have multiple beaches to practice this sport, find surf schools or simply enjoy the show. The 5 best beaches in Cádiz to do so are:
