Location and orientation

Surfer's paradise at the southernmost point of continental Europe

Tarifa is the southernmost city in continental Europe and is located in the province of Cádiz in Andalusia, directly on the Strait of Gibraltar and at its narrowest point. The coastal town, fourteen kilometres from Morocco, has a population of around 18,000. Due to its geographical location at the southern tip of Europe and the windy weather associated with it, it is regarded as one of the world's most important attractions for surfers.

Proximity to major cities in southern Spain

If you book a holiday apartment in Tarifa, you will not only enjoy a relaxed Andalusian atmosphere away from mass tourism, but also the proximity to cities worth seeing in southern Spain. British Gibraltar is only thirty kilometres away and awaits visitors with a unique cultural identity. Many tourists interested in history use Tarifa as a starting point for excursions to Granada, Seville, Málaga or Cordoba.

Travelers and Activities

Tarifa for active holidaymakers

Tarifa is the ideal holiday resort for people who want to be active in an untouched landscape. The ten-kilometre-long, unspoilt sandy beach offers relaxing bathing days as well as a variety of water sports activities. It is bordered on the western side by the dunes of Valdevaqueros, which invite you to explore a bizarre desert landscape. In the hinterland, the Parque Natural Del Estrecho offers meadows populated by herds of cattle that attract many passionate hikers and cyclists.

Tarifa for those interested in culture

Tarifa can look back on a varied history that has left its mark on the Moorish old town, now part of Spain's national heritage. In addition to romantic alleys and bright white houses with beautiful courtyards, the medieval city gate, several baroque churches and the castle Castillo de Guzmán built by the Moors are also worth seeing.
