Hotels in Tarifa
There are a number options for types of hotels in Tarifa, to suit all budgets and tastes.
For those in search of a hotel, there's everything from affordable, friendly hostels to hip boutique hotels and more luxurious establishments. As a host for the alternative culture that comes hand-in-hand with surf dudes - it's one of Europe’s top wind-powered watersports venues, and is known as the kitesurf capital of Europe – the town has a laid-back vibe which draws in artistic types. Some of the Tarifa's hotels even serve organic food, which isn’t widely available in Andalucia.
Some hotels in Tarifa are located outside the town, along the long strip of beach to the north-west, sandwiched between the sea and the N-340 coast road. Most of these, such as 100% Fun and Dos Mares, have large gardens with outdoor bars, beach clubs or ´chiringuitos´ (beach restaurants) which are busy all day and night in the summer. They have Balinese beds, big sofas and swing chairs where you can lounge and watch the surf action, and hammocks to chill out in; in the evening, don your ethno-chic frock and sip a cocktail. The Hurricane hotel is the smartest, with a beautiful garden and swimming pool, and an excellent restaurant.
As well as hotels, Tarifa has plenty of self-catering options in the surrounding area. The hills around the town hide many romantic, secluded rental houses, with views across the Straits of Gibraltar to Morocco.
If you’re coming to Tarifa to indulge your love of watersports - kitesurfing, windsurfing - then you may want to stay as close to the action as possible: in a hotel or campsite next to the beach. That way you can wake up in the morning and dive straight into the surf.
