Tarifa

Book cheap holiday to Tarifa

The Spanish holiday destination of Tarifa is ideally located on the border of the Costa del Sol and Costa de la Luz, near the Strait of Gibraltar and a short ferry ride away from the exotic Moroccan city of Tangier.

The popular beach resort town is famed for being the windsurfing capital of Europe: Atlantic winds create ideal conditions and kite surfing is also growing in popularity here, especially on the beaches of Playa Valdevaqueros and Playa Los Lances.

Those who feel safer on land can try horseback riding, hiking, dolphin and whale watching, cycling, rock climbing and some of the region's best bird watching in Tarifa. The Moorish heritage of the area is evident in the preserved Castillo de Guzman and holidaymakers should visit the old part of the town to wander the narrow streets, shop, and enjoy one of the many great tapas restaurants.

Don't expect the madness and mayhem of places like Torremolinos, nor the 'chips with everything' style resorts; Tarifa is a charming beach resort that offers authentic Spanish flavour and plenty of sunshine.

Information & Facts

Activities

Tarifa has ideal conditions for the wind reliant water sports, like kite surfing, windsurfing, and sailing, and you can try your hand at other aquatic activities like surfing, scuba diving and whale watching as well. Although the wind can be a bit off-putting, Tarifa has stunning, spacious beaches, backed by dunes and pine forests, and there are protected areas that are good for sun tanning and swimming.

Tarifa also has cheap and convenient ferries to Tangier for those who want to experience the Moroccan souks.

Negatives

Tarifa is a very windy holiday resort, perfect for kite surfing and windsurfing, but not always ideal for those looking for relaxing days on the beach.

Popular options include Bar Almedina, which is set into the historic city wall, and the stylish Cafe del Mar Tarifa. The clubs take over where the bars leave off, carrying on the party until around 8am. These include the youth-oriented house venue Club New Rif, the historic La Ruina, and the stylish Carpe Diem. Tarifa attracts great live music as well, including Flamenco, samba, jazz, and its own particular brand of hip hop. Many of the hotel bars host live music performances.
