Besides the dynamic life and beautiful beaches, we had an other reason for our trip to Tarifa. During the last weekend of May, Ruta del Atún festival (The Way of the Tuna) is happening. From Thursday to Sunday almost all the bars and restaurant are serving tuna tapas. For every beer ordered you get also a tuna tapas, all for 3 euros.
2014 was, of course, a full year,with lots of traveling. We had so many busy weekends and the most vacation days so far! We discovered new places, some we loved so much that we are considering of going again next year. But let’s have a short overview of where our feet took us this year.
Tarifa is a small fishing town in the province of Cádiz, Andalusia, on the southernmost coast of Spain and the southernmost point of the European continent, where the Mediterranean Sea meets the Atlantic Ocean. The town is located on the Costa de la Luz (Coast of Light) and across the Straits of Gibraltar facing Morocco and the Atlas Mountains.
Tarifa’s wild coastline offers endless opportunities to explore the countryside. Horse-riding, kite-surfing, wind-surfing, whale-watching, rock-climbing and scuba diving are just a few things you can do besides the usual sunbathing, swimming, beach football/volleyball and mojitos.
