We spent the weekend in Tarifa here in Spain last weekend which is the most southern point in mainland Europe, is within easy sight of Morocco and is also a mecca for wind sports enthusiasts such as kite surfers, wind surfers and much more who visit all year round. Tarifa is the point where the Mediterranean Sea meets the Atlantic Ocean. The beaches are very wide and run for many kilometers and the town is beautiful, steeped in history.
If you are renting a holiday villa on the Costa del Sol then Tarifa we feel that Tarifa is the most restful place in southern Spain and definitely worth a visit for an afternoon during your holiday! It is within very easy reach too, taking an hour an a quarter by car from Pureto Banus.
We stayed overnight in one of the many hotels in the area, with our hotel having heated roof top infinity swimming pool, which was fantastic.
Here are some pictures we took of our stay in Tarifa and you can clearly see Morocco in the distance in some pictures.
