Surfers’ paradise even if you don’t board

This tiny spot under the sun has reached worldwide recognition in terms of water and wind sports. When the small town is not yet visible to the eye, the wind surfs, kite surfs, wakeboards and fly boards can most certainly be seen dotted throughout the blue waters. Tarifa is located on the ‘Costa de la Luz’ i.e. ‘The Coast of Light’, facing Morocco. In terms of its geographical position, it is the southernmost point of Continental Europe and it may feel like being at the end of the world. The vast, almost deserted white sandy beaches such as Playa de los Lances, Valdevaqueros and Punta Paloma with turquoise-coloured waters make it a real treat to enjoy both kite spotting and whale watching. Aside from the beach, the old town of Tarifa is an interesting maze of narrow, cobbled streets, whitewashed houses and beautiful wrought-iron ‘rejas’ gates or fences. Tarifa was fought over by the Spanish and by the Moors for several centuries. The remains of the Islamic influence can be spotted at the fort called ‘Castillo Guzman el Bueno’ originally built as as ‘Alcazar’ meaning a palace built by the Moors. For the more adventurous, why not hop on to a ferry to Morocco for the day as the port of Tangier is only an hour away!
