Things to Do in Tarifa

No reviews, be the first!

If Tarifa is known for nothing else, then it’s known for its wind. Indeed, being situated at the point where the Atlantic meets the Mediterranean is the perfect recipe for blustery beaches, wavy waters and more to do than just lying out.

Located on the southernmost coast of Spain‘s Andalucia, the city of Tarifa dates back to Roman times, later given its name after the attack of Tarif Ibn Malik, a Berber military commander. The city’s name has a more storied history than just the attack by its namesake: Some theories suggest that it is the origin of the word “tariff” as it was the first place in history to charge merchants a fee for use of its docks.
