Horseriding on the beach
Climbing & Mountain biking
Do you love being in the hills and mountains climbing or biking? Then Andalusia is the place for you – near Tarifa are the rocks of San Bartolo. Here you can climb all year round in breathtaking scenery.
There are about 250 routes for all levels. Mountain bikers will also find beautiful trails for alllevels in Andalusia. Our partners from the German adventure company Girasol have years of experience with guiding and equipment in both climbing and cycling.
Hiking on your andalusia holiday
Andalusia is also home to gentle hills and beautiful wild nature. Here you will find untouched hiking trails. Our favourite hike is the so-called Water Mill trail. It starts in the pretty village of St. Lucia and leads past waterfalls, an ancient aqueduct and old water mills. Natural pools are a wonderful way to cool down along the way. This hike is ideal for families.
Horseriding on the beach
Many people dream of a romantic ride along the sand at sunset – on your holiday you can fulfil this dream! Near to El Palmar is the riding stable Cortijo Mangueta. In small groups of up to 8 people you can enjoy the beach scenery from the saddle. A private beach ride is also possible. The staff speak English and German so that you can relax and enjoy your ride.

Whale Watching in Tarifa
Tarifa is just a 40 minute drive from El Palmar and should not be missed on your holiday in Andalusia. On our A-Frame Blog we have summarised the “must sees” for you. One of our favourites is the Whale Watching Tour with Firmm. From a boat you can watch whales and dolphins in the Strait of Gibraltar. What we like best is that this company takes great care that the animals are not disturbed in their natural habitat. All employees speak German, English and Spanish.
Ayurveda Consultation during your surf holidays
Why not use your surf holiday to go for an Ayurvedic consultation? A-Frame yoga teacher Jana not only teaches yoga but is also a qualified Ayurveda practitioner.
During a detailed Ayurveda consultation your constitution (Dosha) will be determined as well as your current condition. Based on this, you will receive recommendations on your diet and lifestyle.
