Tarifa is the most southern city on the european mainland exactly at the juncture of the Atlantic and the Mediterranean.
Due to its strong winds the city is considered as one of the world’s capital of wind and kite surf. Accordingly, the international surf scene determines the townscape. A touch of “Goa” mixed with the flair of calofornia beach atmosphere blows through the streets.
The old town centre is surrounded by historic fortifications which were built during the period of the muslims. Inside these walls the winding streets with bars and stores invite you to ramble and shopping.
The beaches of Tarifa are the most beautiful throughout the Costa de la Luz. The 10 km of coast of Tarifa is divided into two parts which offer virgin nature and a lot of space. The Playa Chica, a small bay on the harbour and the beautiful Playa de los Lances.
