Tarifa is known for its constant winds, which make it an ideal place for practicing certain sports, mainly windsurfing and kitesurfing. When tarifeños want to spend a day at the beach, they go to Playa Chica. There, instead of kites and boards, you can enjoy quiet sun. It is a family beach with few tourists. You can snorkel or scuba dive here too, but there are better beaches for it. If you come to Playa Chica it is to witness a scene that is very familiar in Spain: the husband sat on the sand, while his wife, accompanied by her mother and some of his in-laws, hand out tortilla chips and Coca Cola out of the cooler, shouting loudly to children, running through the sand bothering other families with a loud radio playing.
