In the South of Europe - Gibraltar, Tarifa and Atlantic Coast

Gibraltar

Let's go to the kingdom! Gibraltar is where the Atlantic meets the Mediterranean. A mighty limestone massif which was occupied in 1704 by the British crown. "The Rock" is a tax free shopping paradise.

Tarifa and the Atlantic Coast

Here the sand is fine and it's usually quite windy. Therefore Tarifa is a hot spot to meet surfers and kiters from around the world. It is the southernmost city on the European continent. Levante and Poniente are the names of the winds that make the surfer's hearts beat faster. Of course easy beach life and mobile homes are part of the lifestyle in the surfers hot spot too.

History

Not only Gibraltar is a place steeped in history. In many places along the Spanish south coast there are ancient excavations that provide insight into the life of hundreds of years ago. The Romans settled in Tarifa in the 1st Century BC. Archaeologists can conclude from excavations that both Tarifa and Cadiz were established as early as 1000 years BC by the Phoenicians.
