Lovely Tarifa is situated at the southernmost point in Europe. It is just 14 kilometers (8.7mi) from Africa, and the town borders the Atlantic Ocean and the Mediterranean Sea. There are white sandy beaches and the vast expanse of countryside attracts many surfers to Tarifa to surf and explore its rugged beauty. It is famous for bird watching, and nature lovers flock here to hike, watch birds, or ride horses. This town retains the charms of an Arabic city, with its historic monuments still intact, remnants of different rulers over time. The Gate of Jerez and the Caliph’s Castle from the Moorish rule, the church of San Mateo, and the Roman ruins of Baelo Claudia are all noteworthy tourist attractions. Horses and bulls roam the pastures, adding to its charm. The cuisine here is also a nod to its Arab influence, with rice, lemons, oranges and olives used abundantly. The grilled fish is famous here.
