If you want it to be, Tarifa is non-stop. It’s a beach town, party zone, surf spot and historic trip all rolled into which is why there is so much to do when you holiday in Tarifa. Here we take a look at some of the hot activities Tarifa has to offer.
Tarifa Kite lessons
Tarifa and kitesurfing go together like sea and sand. You don’t have to go kitesurfing in Tarifa but it’s the town’s most popular activity. There are tons of kite schools to choose from all offering competitive packages. Typically you can choose between 2 day and 5 day packages with prices starting at 160 euros. If you don’t have your own board and suit, the schools will also provide all the necessary equipment.
Tarifa Bird watching
Tarifa lies at the point of a key migration route for birds and in the autumn the sky is awash with a vast collection of species that includes hawks, eagles, sparrows, vultures, storks, larks, warblers and finches.
Trip to Tanger
For many the highlight of their trip to Tarifa is the chance to take the half hour ferry across the Strait of Gibraltar to spend time in the northern Moroccan city of Tangier. With its ancient Medina and voracious street hawkers, Tangier is considered by many to be a veritable assault on the senses. An experience never to forget.
Tango in Misiana
If you feel like brushing up on your dancing skills or just want to start the week off with a bang, then you can’t beat Monday night Tango in Hotel Misiana. With a professional teacher from Argentina and lots of couples from beginners to advanced level, expect an evening of exotic fun.
Lunch in the Old Town
Tarifa’s old town is dotted with Andalucian squares each with their own restaurants, tapas bars and atmosphere. Lunch time, check out Plaza San Martin where you have a mix of traditional Spanish tapas and fresh fish as well as Mexican and Italian. At this time of the day, you can also expect to find live music and dancers in the Plaza.
These are just some of the things that you can do with your holiday in Tarifa. For more ideas check out theTarifa Direct website today.
