Tarifa is located in the Strait of Gibraltar and in the Natural Park of the Strait. Lying between the two great winds, Levante and Ponente, one can admire the tip of Tarifa called Isla de las Palomas where the Mediterranean Sea and the Atlantic Ocean meet. Just across the sea, on the other shore only 14 km away, you can appreciate the Maghreb coast with Morocco, the mountains of the Rif and the city of Tangiers.
The historical center of Tarifa is absolutely stunningly and is bordered by medieval-style walls. You have to see its alleyways, courtyards, squares, churches and of course, last but not least, the Castle of Guzman el Bueno just right beside the port.
The beaches and the magnificent wind offer a natural paradise for kite-surfing and windsurfing, thus attracting thousands from all over the world.
