About Tarifa
  • Tarifa is located in the most southern part of Spain – where Europe ends and Africa begins.
  • Where the Atlantic Ocean and the Mediterrenean Sea meet!
  • The city Tangier in Morocco is situated across the ocean within 13 km, easily reachable for an outing by a speedferry boat.
  • March in Tarifa is low season, with few tourists around, and offers mild temperatures around 17 – 25 degrees Celsius.
  • Amazing dunes and nature reserves, two oceans and the Strait of Gibraltar with many whales, dolphins, flying fish and more. This area is infused with Moorish and Arabic influences, and Tarifa is an old city mixed with modern buildings and houses while still having a laid back atmosphere.
  • This area is also known as a surfer’s paradise, because of the frequent winds, and has hardly adopted the famous Spanish beach paradise for sunbathing.
  • Delicious and various foods at local restaurants and tapas bars! Local dishes, daily fresh fish, ecological pizzas, healthy salads and a variety of vegetarian options.
  • Spend time hanging out on the beach | Enjoy a whale tour with eco friendly whale tour company such as Turmares | Go for a day trip to Tanger(Morocco) with a guide | Visit the Bolonia Dunes |
