Tarifa is a small town in the province of Cádiz, Andalusia, on the southernmost coast of Spain. It is primarily known as one of the world's most popular destinations for wind sports. The town is located on the Costa de la Luz ("coast of light") and across the Straits of Gibraltar facing Morocco.
Ten kilometres of white sandy beaches, unspoilt countryside and some of the best kite & windsurfing conditions in Europe. Just 11 km across the Straits of Gibraltar at its narrowest point, this southern-most tip of Europe where the Med 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 opportunities to explore the rolling countryside. Horse-riding, kite-surfing, wind-surfing, whale-watching, rock-climbing and scuba diving to name but a few.
Tarifa is a little fishing town where fishermen still use traditional methods. It is a perfect spot for trying fresh tuna in truly Tarifian style.
Tarifa is a charming little town thanks to its narrow cobbled streets, tumbling jasmine and orange trees, a perfect place for a stroll and a coffee in one of many little squares.
Tarifa is a very sociable town and has many traditional tapas bars and restaurants. Also some popular beach bars with live music at the weekends. Plenty to choose from.
