TARIFA TOWN & Beaches
Ten kilometres of white sandy beaches, unspoilt countryside and some of the best windsurfing conditions in Europe have established Tarifa as a true surfers paradise.
Just 11 km across the Straits of Gibraltar at its narrowest point, this southern-most tip of Europe where the Mediterranean meets the Atlantic Ocean, enjoys spectacular views of the Rif mountains of Africa across the water.
Tarifa's wild coastline attracts surfers and nature-lovers alike. Just as famous for its birdwatching as its surfing, there are endless

name but a few.
This little fishing town was the first point of the Moorish invasion of Southern Spain in 711.
The narrow cobbled streets, tumbling jasmine and beautiful wrought-iron gates make Tarifa old town a charming place for a stroll. The original city walls of this ancient town are tightly woven into the fabric of the whitewashed houses.
The Atlantic coast is where you find amazing long beaches with white sand. The area can often be windy which makes it ideal for kite- and windsurfing.
