Tarifa is a small town on the Costa de la Luz in the province of Cadiz where the Mediterranean Sea meets the Atlantic Ocean. The area is popular with windsurfers and kite surfers due to the strong wind and the resulting size of the waves.
Wind and kite-surfing aside, the town is surrounded by 10 kilometres of white sandy beaches next to unspoilt countryside, no big tourist complexes and just great campsites and unpretentious cafés.
