Here you will find the best beaches to practice surf sports but diving is also very popular, around the island of Tarifa. In the area of Betis, a few kilometers from Tarifa, there are walls to climb with breathtaking views and there are also many paths through the natural parks for hiking and mountain bike routes. Horse lovers can combine galloping along the long beaches with walks through the adjacent forests.
Those who seek pure nature find here an oasis within Europe, where many species of animals and plants are concentrated.
Tarifa attracts thousands of international ornithologists every year to observe migrations of European migratory birds on their journey to or from Africa. As the distance between the two continents is only 13km, Tarifa is the most important resting place for birds during their migrations.

On the paths of the natural parks you can see many native species of plants and animals, and also anthropomorphic tombs with up to 10,000 years old and cave paintings.
Strolling through the historic center of Tarifa, which belongs to the route of the White Villages, you discover something new in almost all the corners of the narrow streets.
But also large monuments such as the castle of Guzmán el Bueno, several churches, the old prison that today serves as an art gallery, the town hall square and the Miramar viewpoint are worth a visit.
In the nearby village of Bologna you can visit the Roman ruins of Baelo Claudia, where you can perfectly understand the way of life of that time.
Also a trip to Morocco is an excellent opportunity to spend a day.
As the distance between Tarifa and Morocco is only 13km, you can visit the Moroccan city of Tangier with the fast ferry for a few hours to get an impression of the culture.
For excursions to Morocco it is necessary to bear in mind that it is necessary to carry the passport with a validity of at least 6 months at the time of entry into the country.
