Punta Paloma is also known as Los Porros. It is located about 10 km from the city and is the last beach of the bay of Tarifa. Another of the best and safest kitespots when there is Levante wind, from the east.

It is one of those beaches where one goes and it is impossible not to take a photo. The sunsets are sensational and the view of Morocco is spectacular, at the end of this beach, a great sand dune is formed thanks to the constant winds. There is where you will end if you have any problems with the kite. After your session or if the wind goes down, you can still chill at the bars, with a cold beer and pleasant company, listen to good music and enjoy the great atmosphere until the sun goes down.
