Tarifa Tourist Information

Tarifa is a small fishing town with a trend for windsurfing at the beach, and a back drop of countryside and mountains.  The architecture is Moorish and Roman, this coupled with the narrow cobbled streets makes it a very picturesque, quaint place to holiday.  The weekly market in Tarifa is on a Tuesday from around 10am-2pm, full of atmosphere and bursting with locals it is a great place to pick up souvenirs.
