Aerial Invasion

Tarifa, at the southern tip of Spain, was named after Tarif ibn Malik, a Berber warrior who in 710 sailed from Africa, seen in the background, to reconnoiter military defenses in preparation for a large-scale invasion of Spain. Today the beaches are invaded by tourists who come for the near-constant Levante wind that makes Tarifa a world-renown destination for kiteboarding and windsurfing. Or maybe just to kick around a soccer ball. Photo ©Mike Randolph

    Thanks JL. It’s heaven if you’re into wind sports. But if not, it can get a little too much at times.

      Places at the ‘end of the road’ always seem to be interesting and unusual and Tarifa is no different. Glad you had a good time there!

    Katie is totally right. It was a good time and a great memory to have. When we were there, it was the off season so it was not at all like this but rather, an immense beach with not a soul on it. Very different. Thanks for the picture Mike.
