La Tortuga 2
Welcome to www.tarifabeach.co.uk
This website will give you information on how to rent one of the best apartments on Tarifa beach as well as a guide to this unique spot on the south coast of Spain. See the apartment and bookings tab for more information on renting this wonderful apartment.
Tarifa is situated on the most southern tip of Spain, just 20 miles across the Straits of Gibraltar to Africa.
Because of Tarifa's position it is constantly buffered by two conflicting winds: the Levante from the east and the Poniente from the west. There's not often a day without wind in Tarifa and it is because of this that Tarifa has become the windsurfing capital of Europe. The town itself has unique charm and an excited buzz. It is full of unpretentious cafes and bars which come alive in the evenings.
Tarifa beach is one of the most beautiful and unspoiled beaches in Europe, white sand and an enormous 12km in length. This view can best be appreciated from the balcony of the apartment of La Tortuga 2.
Windsurfing and kite surfing are the most obvious activities in Tarifa - you can rent windsurfing or kite surfing equipment from any one of the many surf schools.
Horse-riding is also popular and Tarifa's pleasant beaches and undeveloped environment make it an ideal activity. There's a number of great trails to explore on horseback and you can organise your ride through any of the major hotels in town (see Activities)
Mountain biking is developing in the area with the Animal Academy Tarifa now developing downhill trails on the hills to the north of Tarifa. They also have top end mountain bikes to rent.
The Straits of Gibraltar offer some fantastic sites for scuba diving at different depths. There are two certified dive schools in the area and a number of outfitters who will arrange your diving trip for you.
If you fancy something different you are not far from the excitement of Marbella and Puerto Banus or even catch a ferry to Morocco for the day!
