A TARIFA GUIDE
Check out our Tarifa postcard featured on Lucia Tait's travel and style blog Tait & Co.
Where to stay:
- There are plenty of beaches and Kitesurf schools, I loved Arte Vida- Talk to Hector who organized lessons with our professor Lee who was really good.
- Rock Climbing- Girasol Adventures- Sabine and Chris are two Germans who run Girasol Adventures and can customize hikes, rock climbs, and yoga.
- Day trip to Tangier, was really not my cup of tea but we did it anyways,( I have really cool suggestions for shopping though contact me for details)
Shopping in town:
- Zero Gravity- My favorite store in Tarifa
- Zas- very funky hippie clothes and accessories ( see photo below for the cutest kids wear)
- Bambule- lovely embroidered beach baskets
- T shirts all over town
- Next to Girasol Adventures and right across from the every day fresh local market is a tiny little store run by an Italian, Giorgia, that sells burratta and freshly baked pies that are amazing.
- Morrocan leather and an incredible array of colorful babouches
Where to eat:
- Thanks to my friend Rai who suggested my personal favorite, Anca Curro. It is located 100m from the Puerta de Jerez (the arch way into the old center) in a little side lane of the Calle de la Luz. Look out for the two metal horse's heads by the door.
You need a car to reach these other spots:
- Meat lovers will enjoy El Nene a traditional Andalusian in Facinas town
- Seafood at Antonios in Zahara de los Atunes. about half an hour away by car.
- Lunch at Bahia de Bolonia, a chiringito all the way on the right close to the ruins on the beach
To go out:
- Unfortunately with all the sports and activities we were doing all day, I didn't have much energy to check out Tarifa's nightlife although I hear its really fun. We did a couple of chill out places like Pachamamma and 100% Pure Fun
