Lounge in Tarifa

The ultimate Tarifa-cool beach hang-out, Tumbao serves up cocktails, tinto de verano (cold, wine-based drink similar to sangria) loungey sunset beats on a grassy, beanbag-strewn patch overlooking the kitesurfing action on Playa de Valdevaqueros, 10km northwest of town. The kitchen delivers burgers, salads, nachos, grilled chuletones (giant beef chops) and other tasty bites, mostly sizzled up on the open barbecue (mains €7 to €15).

The attached ivy-wrapped restaurant does excellent Spanish-international buffet lunches (€11) from 1pm to 5pm. Also here is the respected ION Club kitesurfing/windsurfing school.
