Overview

Introduction

The winds that prevail from east to west make this area ideal for kite-surfing and windsurfing.  In the region of 60% of the terrain around Tarifa is a protected environment and very much off the beaten tourist track.  The beaches are endless.

Tarifa itself reflects moorish influence, with its well preserved Guzman Castle, built by the caliph Abd-ar-Rahman III in 960 AD.  One can see the remains of the medieval walls, although only one of the three gates still remains standing.  A 15 minute drive up the coast will bring you to the very romantic site of the Roman city of Baelo Claudia, buried amongst the sand dunes on the water’s edge.

The town is located within the Intercontinental Mediterranean Biosphere Reserve and is the perfect location for watching migratory birds, especially storks which cross the 14 km wide straits of Gibraltar in spring and autumn.

Entertainment here is for the young and Tarifa has a very lively nightlife. It is a blend of Spanish and European which starts late and ends in the early hours!
