Tarifa and surroundings

Tarifa is the link between Europe and Africa: only 14 kilometres separate Spain from the Moroccan coast. Here, in the Strait of Gibraltar, the Mediterranean Sea and the Atlantic Ocean converge.

The small fishing village of Tarifa is surrounded by the nature park Parque Natural del Estrecho. To the east, on the Mediterranean side, is the rocky coast. On the other side, there are the endless sandy beaches of the Atlantic Ocean, which start only a few metres away from the harbour and extend along the Costa de la Luz as far as Cádiz.
