THE EUROPEAN CALIFORNIA
Tarifa, blessed by its moons and suns, by its earth and its sea, is the most southerly point of Europe, almost touching the nearby continent of Africa. From many vantage points the two appear to be united, like the brothers they were, are and continue to be.
Tarifa is characterized by its energy, its tolerance, and the sensual caress of the Poniente winds which contrast with the rebellious gusts of the Levante. The vibrant greens of the natural park which envelops Tarifa contrast with the blues of the two seas which lap its shores – the Mediterranean and the Atlantic. Given its uniquely privileged location, it has been designated as a Biosphere Reserve by UNESCO. Tarifa is not just one of the best places to enjoy natures’ offerings, but also offers all kinds of sports, aquatic or land-based.
Tarifa is an important anthropological area; a turbulent territory in which there is much to learn about ancient history and the Middle Ages.
Tarifa has it all: culture, gastronomy, multiple activities, nature and, best of all, people whose attitude to life distances them from the overwhelming stress of what we call (perhaps erroneously) progressive society.
