The Costa de la Luz region

Costa de la luz has both meditteranean and atlantic coastlines, giving both rocky beaches and 76 miles of golden sandy beaches between tarifa and cadiz. The climate is ideal with sea breezes keeping the hotest days bearable. Sunshine is unlimited in this most southern point in Europe. The cities of Cadiz, Seville and Jerez are all within a days visit, reachable by local bus and car. the area is full of history and stories of romans and moors, which is evident in the local towns and villages. Gibraltar is within a 35 minute drive and well worth a day out. Algeciras has a waterpark about a 15 minute drive away.World famous kite surfing location.

Tarifa

Fantastic beaches providing relaxing area's and specific kite surfing beaches.Walks within 10 minutes of property.Local village nearby with pharmacy, post office, bakery and 2 grocery stores. Traditional spanish restaurants serving excellent value for money meals.Ferries to Morocco within 10 minute drive from apartment.Tarifa feria held in early september.Picnic area's nearby.Hotel with excellant restaurant 5 minutes walk away.Tarifa itself is an ancient walled town with many buildings of interest and even a moorish castle. The Med meets the Atlantic in Tarifa and this provides the ideal water conditions to give Tarifa the reputation of the windsurfing capital of Europe. There are numerous festivals and feasts in the area, each town and village holding its own. Every autumn thousands of soaring birds, principally storks and raptors, cross the Straits of Gibraltar on their southward migration into Africa. The spectacle of thousands of Honey Buzzards, hundreds of Booted Eagles, Black Kites and White Storks and a large assortment of scarcer species is a phenomenon which draws many birdwatchers to the southern tip of Europe.The beauty of this area is that, in addition to the migration, there are many other interesting species to be found in the mountains, wooded hills, lowlands, marshes and coastThe ferry runs from Tarifa to Tangiers, a journey boasted to be of 35 minutes, (I would take the timing with a pinch of salt) but a journey well recommended. The ruins at Bolonia are a must, the dig is on going, and a new visitor centre has just opened (winter 2007). Take your EU passport and entrance is free. A new supermarket has just opened at the end of the road, handy for basic supplies.Recommended restaurants in Tarifa.Restaurante el PuertoAvda de las fuerzas armadas 1311380 Tarifa Spain La TostaPlaza San Hiscio s/n11380 Tarifa SpainWebsiteGunLao Restaurant chillc/ Pintor Pérez Villalta 62 L511380 Tarifa SpainWebsite Restaurante Ajo´sc/ Pedro Cortes 511380 Tarifa SpainSavarín Karpantec/ María Antonia Toledo 311380 Tarifa Spain La PescaderíaPaseo de la Alameda s/n11380 Tarifa SpainWebsiteLa TrattoriaPaseo de la Alameda s/n11380 Tarifa SpainWebsite La Rosa Negrac/ Coronel Moscardó 411380 Tarifa SpainRestaurante la PazPlaza de la Paz s/n11380 Tarifa Spain Souk Bar Restaurantec/ Mar Tirreno 6411380 Tarifa Spain
