The most Southerly town in mainland Europe. It's a reasonable drive that passes Gibraltar en route. Essentially, a surfer's paradise, it's very different to most of the costa. Before you descend into the town itself, the views across the straits to Morocco are stunning!
Amazing beaches, windsurfing etc. .. chilled out place to hang out 45 minutes drive. Take time to go into the old town for some shopping , drinks and food...
Kite surf is the reason Tarifa is no longer just a fishing village. Around thirty years ago the surfers came and conquered and nowadays the Batalla del Salado, Tarifa’s main commercial street, is lined with surf clothing emporiums and board shops. Championships are held here but novices are welcome too – there are a huge number of kite schools (try Hotstick) that can train you up and you should expect it to take a couple of days before you get out on the water alone.You’ll probably spend in excess of €130 on training. Kite surf central is Playa Valdevaqueros, about 6km outside town. Sandwiched between two Natural parks – Parque Natural Los Alcornocales and Parque Natural Del Estrecho - Tarifa is a hiker’s paradise. Even in high summer the sea breezes keep long walks feasible, though it would probably be best at that time of year to favour the shadier walks through the beautiful Cork Oak forests. http://www.spain-holiday.com/Tarifa/articles/top-ten-things-to-see-and-do-in-tarifa
This beach town located at the most southern point of the European continent on the Straights of Gibraltar is a hidden gem. Frequented primarily by wind surfers and travelers looking for passage to North Africa, this place has yet to really become a tourist destination of its own. The beautiful beaches and edge of the world feel may soon change that though.
