Tarifa, a paradise for tourists

We can say that Tarifa is a veritable paradise for tourists.

For many reasons it stands out from the normal run of holiday resorts.  First, its geographical location is exceptional. It is situated on the Straits of Gibraltar, only 14 kms from Africa, where the Mediterranean Sea meets the Atlantic.  From its shores one can see across to the other continent.

Furthermore, it is a town where one of the most agreeable assets is the warmth of the people with their Andalusian character together with the cultural legacy of the Arabs. The conditions are ideal for an enjoyable stay.

Here you can see unspoilt countryside (two Nature Parks: Los Alcornocales and El Estrecho) which gives rise to out-door and sporting activities such as whale and dolphin-spotting, rambling, hill-walking and pony-trekking.  In addition, it has wide and extensive sandy beaches which are, without doubt, its major attraction.

It stands in countryside of outstanding natural beauty where you can enjoy bird-watching, under-water diving and, in particular, sports associated with the wind, like surfing and wind-surfing - indeed, Tarifa is known as “The Windy City”.

Note the temperatures: comfortably high in summer and mild in winter, with clear blue skies.

The town offers a wide variety of holiday accommodation to suit every pocket – the buildings blending perfectly with the environment.

Finally, there are many places where you can go and have a good time in convivial surroundings, notably the tapas bars, restaurants serving local specialities, discotheques and pubs.

No-one can remain insensible to the charms of this beautiful town.
