Tarifa is a windy relaxed place, where Mediterranean Sea meets the Atlantic Ocean. Southernmost point of mainland Europe, it is so close to Africa, that you can see it from the coast at most days (more than 300 of which are sunny per year, by the way). The eternal wind is both the curse and the blessing: it prevents the large scale hotel development that totally altered other coastal areas of the country, but also attracts a different sort of public - more bohemian and self-paced, backpackers and kitesurfers. The area bears traces of its ancient inhabitants - the Romans and the Moors. North of town, wide beaches of fine white sand are still framed with pine forests.
