Sight of Tarifa

Tarifa is located in the Strait of Gibraltar, just 14 kilometres from Tangier (Morocco), the southeast point on the Iberian Peninsula. Punta de Tarifa (Tarifa Island) separates Mediterranean and Atlantic coasts.

This village has a population over 18,000 inhabitants. In this count, there are a variety of nationalities, from European countries and African ones.

The main economic activity is tourism, thanks to wind conditions and natural beaches. In fact, it is popular known as one of the world’s most popular destinations for windsports.

The climate is warm in summer and mild in winter. Wind is one of the typical phenomenon during almost all year. This is the reason why countless wind turbines can be seen in the area.
