TARIFA - the best insider tips for vacation, holiday & travel

Tarifa in the south of Spain, is a lovely Andalusian holiday destination that is known for being a surfer’s paradise. Sandy beaches and dunes, plus mountains that tower over the immaculate coastline of Costa de la Luz where the Atlantic Ocean meets the Mediterranean Sea are just some of the town’s natural appeal. The ambiance here is very relaxed and laid back but there are also exciting activities for adventurers like going kite surfing, windsurfing, sailing, dolphin and whale watching, surfing, horseback riding, mountain cycling, and visiting historical structures. Many visitors take advantage of Tarifa’s proximity to the Strait of Gibraltar that separates Europe from Africa and take day trips to Tangier via 35 min ferry ride. Take a stroll and admire the medieval architecture of old town Tarifa starting from the Puerta de Jerez gate, visit El Guzman el Bueno Castle from which you can see a 360 degree view of the town and the strait, and the fascinating facade of the 16th century San Mateo gothic church. The Roman ruins of Baelo Claudia in Bolonia are also worth a visit, just 20 miles away from old town. Avid golfers would be glad to know that Tarifa is in close proximity to some of the best European golf courses at Benalup and Dehesa Montenmedio golf clubs on the Atlantic side and Alcaidesa at San Roque and Valderrama Golf course in Sotogrande on the Mediterranean side.

The closest airports for going to Tarifa is at Gibraltar (35 minutes away), Jerez de la Frontera (60 min), Tangier (60 min), Morocco (1 hour including ferry ride) and Malaga (90 min). There are also daily scheduled busses from Cadiz, Algeciras, Sevilla and other cities. The nearest rail station is in Algeciras but it would entail an additional 30 min bus ride into Tarifa. There are also fast ferries (35 min ride) coming from Morocco and Tangier.
