Tarifa - The Adventure Capital Of Europe!

Tarifa is ‘The Adventure Capital of Europe’ and a mecca for windsurfers and kitesurfers.
There are no English bars and restaurants. No cinema or theatre.

But if you enjoy extreme sports, outdoor pursuits and the simple things in life – walks along the beach or bird watching in the countryside or whale watching -and want to get back to nature, you’ll love Tarifa, the surrounding area and the people here.

When you’re bored with Tarifa, you’re probably getting bored with life.
The Old Town – ‘Casco Antiguo’ – is a warren of narrow white cobbled streets, opening on to delightful small squares, with a ‘Tapas’ bar on every corner and restaurants offering the best of local produce. ‘Organic’ must have been invented here as it’s all the local market and spice shops have ever sold.
There’s an old Moorish castle, recently renovated, a colourful fishing harbour (no luxury yachts here) but with daily whale watching trips and regular fast ferries to Tangiers just 35 mins away.

Just a few kms out of town are some of the best and cleanest beaches in Europe with plenty of room for everybody, even in the Summer; with windurfers, kitesurfers and sunbathers each respecting their zones. No laying out your towels and bagging a sun bed here; there aren’t any.
