Cheap rooms/apartments in Tarifa
Any tips in the subject? I am looking for really cheap room in Tarifa for two persons in high season (for about two weeks). Is it possible to find one for less then 1000 euro for stay?
Has anyone stayed in Apartments Edus? I found it through Costasur.com but there are no opinions about them.
Thank you for help,
Re: Cheap rooms/apartments in Tarifa
In high season it is very difficult to find anything for less than 100 euros a night, even for 2 ... so we always used to stay in a beautiful white village, 1 hour away from Tarifa (www.jimenastudio.com)... The village, Jimena de la Frontera, was much cheaper and authentic.
Then last year we found a beautiful original and extravagant place in the center of the old town (and cheap !) . We loved it : www.tarifa.net/beaterio
Good luck in finding your perfect holiday place !

Thank you for reply. Beaterio seems very nice and for reasonable price.
Travel Tips for Tarifa (Cadiz)
Tarifa is the southernmost town in Europe
Tarifa is the southernmost town in Europe. It's right at the very tip of southern Spain. Is has a fascinating location. Just 14 kms from Africa, it divides both the Mediterranean and Atlantic oceans. From here, there are some fantastic views over to Africa.
It's here that you'll find the notorious Levante wind; a very strong inland wind that creates excellent windsurfing) and kitesurfing conditions. Tarifa is widely regarded as the "wind capital of Europe". Many important competitions are held here.
But there's more to it than that. It's not just surfing anymore. Nowadays, visitors come for the nightlife, food, culture and stunning beaches. Tarifa also has a hippie culture that thrives all year round. It has to be the "camper van capital of Europe" too - they're everywhere!!
Although the winds can be relentless, Tarifa is attracting more and more visitors each year. Property prices have boomed and it is quickly becoming a number one tourist spot.
Plaza de Santa María
The Plaza of Santa Maria is also known as the square of the little frog. Nicely planted and with the central pool with frog fountains. The town hall and municipal museum are also located in the square
Hang-gliding and Paracending
We saw a lot of people paracending at the dunes of Punta Paloma beach. I´m not sure if there is any tuition or a club in the area. I suspect it was people with their own equipment that had learnt the sport elsewhere.
Here is also where you walk across the runway of the tiny airport to get into Spain.
If coming in by car, queues can be very long especially in the summer months. There is car parks on the Spanish side if you prefer not to queue and walk in. You must have a passport to gain entry into Gibraltar even if you are British.
I actually find it strange though that Gibraltarians have to show their passports when entering Spain, and yet by some arrangement with the Spanish authorities, Spaniards dont have to show their passport but just their ID.
Lots of English pubs, you would think you were at home if you were from the UK.
Here is where John Lennon and Yoko Ono got married, as did Sean Connery.
It is quite popular getting married here, you only need to register the day before.
The currency here is the British Pound Sterling. You can use Euros but you will get a terrible exchange rate so everything will appear much more expensive then. There are bureau exchanges in Main Street if you want to change money.
Guzman El Bueno
Near the castle is a statue of Don Alonso Perez de Guzman (also known as Guzman el Bueno “the good”.) He was born in 1256 and in later years was given the charge of Tarifa after it was taken from the Moors. He defended Tarifa and the castle when the Moors tried to take it back, even at the expense of his son’s life.
