Culture

Tarifa is a small, white washed village at the southernmost point of Europe in the province of Cadiz and one of the few places in Spain that still boasts virtually pristine white sand beaches.

Tarifa is a unique place with a special atmosphere that attracts people from all over the world. Here you will find a mix of history, tradition, and modernity, all within a comfortably small area.

One archeological jewel is the Roman town of Baelo Claudia, which dates back to 200 BCE and whose existence is closely linked to trade with North Africa.

In the well preserved old town of Tarifa you can wander through the narrow white streets and explore the many shops and restaurants serving popular local dishes.

Tarifa is also the European capital of wind and kite surfing. After a day on the beach, enjoy the cosmopolitan atmosphere and exciting nightlife in a pleasing jumble of tapas bars, restaurants, cafes, and nightclubs.

Nature

Tarifa is the ideal place for nature lovers. It is Europe’s southernmost point. Due to its unique location where the Mediterranean meets the Atlantic, it’s where migratory birds meet before making the journey from one continent to the other, thus allowing ornithologists to enjoy impressive views of birdlife.

The marine currents and the special underwater geography of the Strait of Gibraltar attract up to six different species of cetaceans which can be observed throughout the year. The many local boat trips regularly provide a chance to observe these whales, dolphins, and porpoises in their natural habitat.

Tarifa is conveniently situated between two national parks, featuring the famous cork oak forests (Alcornocales) and the Straits of Gibraltar (Estrecho), with numerous opportunities for biking, hiking, bird watching or simply enjoying a truly unique landscape.
