Tarifa offers unique opportunities for enjoyment thanks to its wonderful location near the Strait of Gibraltar.
Many of these experiences are exclusive as they depend on Tarifa’s special characteristics: strong east winds, Morocco only 14 Km away, stopover for migratory birds and cetaceans, and the place where the Mediterranean and the Atlantic, and two nature parks, meet.
Tarifa is known as the “City of Wind” and as one of the spots for kitesurfing recognized worldwide. Dare try this sport; you will have the chance to enjoy sun, sea and wind.
The Nature Park of the Strait of Gibraltar and the Alcornocales Nature Park constitute the perfect natural environment in which to fall in love with Tarifa while pedaling. Routes between cork trees with views of Africa that will not leave you indifferent.
Sightings of Cetaceans
The Strait of Gibraltar is the channel that connects the Mediterranean and the Atlantic and is a Reserve of the Biosphere. Different species of cetaceans live or pass through the Strait, and you can sight them depending on the time of the year – an adventure that you should not miss.
Sea, white sand beaches, dunes, countryside: all the elements to enjoy incredible horse rides and never-ending sunsets. Are you going to let this go by?
Only 14 km away and 35 minutes by boat across the strait of Gibraltar, you arrive in Tangier. A must where you will succumb to its vibrant colours, the smell of exotic spices, tea, mint and delicious food.
