    We drove to Tarifa just to see the Strait of Gibraltar and the African coast. It was surprising to find out that it was so close, just ten miles across. (I wasn't a great student of geography, obviously). The views were fantastic. We were very tempted to go and see a different continent for the first time, but we didn't want to rush it. That's a whole other trip.

    Opening times are sometimes a little bit tedious…. Would habe loved to see the interior but they close very soon.
    It makes quite a spectacular view from the outside and has a vast history covered.
    Build by musuluman conquerors, it stood for
    Many hundred years in their dominion before cristian warriors took it. It then became a Spanish fortification and was used till last century. It is fully intact from the outside and documentation tells there is a lot of history to be seen in the interior. Next time I won’t miss the visit.
    Together with the lovely medieval town of Tarifa it is one of the must visit places in south Spain.

    This is a lovely walk passing the landmarks where the Mediterranean and Atlantic meet. Only when you get out to the island do you realise is is closed for development. Views toward Tarifa are lovely as well as the Atlantic beaches on the other side.

    Punta paloma is now fully accesible, where as before there was a military zone that limited access, unless it was for the restaurant. The ever expanding dunes, on the early stretch of the road are a must see

    We sat in a nearby cafe overlooking the Church of San Mateo and decided to view the interior. What a stunning building right in the middle of the old town of Tarifa and with a superb interior. Well worth a visit.

    This is the beautiful gateway to old Tarifa and an imposing entrance to the old town. Plenty of restaurants and cafes nearby to absorb the history.

    Lovely small beach next to Playa de Los Lances Sur where all of the kite surfers are. Not too crowded in October since the weather was chilly, but I would imagine it's a great place to hang out in the summer.

    The highly talented and skilled Manuel Caminero produces some fabulous high quality photos. We have bought a few now and remain delighted with them. The quality of the acrylic mounting process means that these are high end art photos. Highly recommend. Have a look you won’t be disappointed.

    This is a nice spot in the old town, and sometimes there are events like concerts organized there, which is the best way ti enjoy the plaxce, I guess!

    I found this place not far from Tarifa and I was amazed at how pretty it was. The church is centuries old and the place is so peaceful. You can buy candles on spot. The church itself is a gem and worth the short trip from Tarifa. There is a pretty courtyard as well.

    I requires a bit of a hike up the hill at the end of the road but the views at the end are worth the effort. this is a very old watch tower that would have been used to warn of pirates by smoke during the day and fire at night. Now it's a lighthouse.

    Walking along the “muralla” is very nice , and visiting the old town very interesting. Take a moment sitting at one of the cafes and drink a cold bier!
