Tarifa is kite surfer’s paradise! – also really well suited for everyone else who loves the Spanish “Mañana Mañana” mentality.
Tarifa is only 20 minutes away from Africa/Morocco. You can go whale watching and explore up to 5 different kinds of whales including killer whales! Only 20 minutes west of Tarifa you’ll find one of the most lovely beaches in Spain – Tumbao – with a cool surf and white sand. Enjoy a drink at one of the beach bars “chiringuitos”, take a seat on the grass, lean back and order another mojito – they are affordable – and end the day with traditional dancing in the sunset.
Caseres & Guacin
They are both one of the “white-cities” in Andalucia – but unknown to most tourist!
The roads are small and narrow and covered with cobblestones, very charming! Besides great tapas and a stunning view, the area is also great for watching huge eagles and vultures.
The village is located on two hills. The two tribes on each hill fought each other for many centuries, but in the end, they settled and built an enormous bridge between the two villages’… unbelievable architecture!
Rhonda is also the home of the first Bullfighting arena in the world, which is very well preserved!
Cadiz & Jerez
Cadiz is a city which used to be the home of Viking ships when the first exhibitions to Spain occurred. Cadiz turned out to be one of the most important cities for Spain due to the strategic location. Christoffer Columbus started two of his major journeys from Cadiz. Jarez is a smaller harbour close to Cadiz. This is where the Spanish Sherry comes from. It is easy and cheap find a Sherry-tasting and visit their distilleries.
This is the capitol of the region Andalusia, and it has the 4th largest old town (part of the modern city) in Europe. You can find the worlds 3rd largest cathedral in this old town district.
Apart from great history and culture, there is a lovely park with wild parrots flying around.
