The Costa del Sol is the wind paradise in Europe. The best and most famous place here is clearly Tarifa on the Atlantic. This is actually no longer the Costa del Sol. This is where surfing fans from all over Europe meet. The town of 14,000 inhabitants is completely geared towards surfing. There are many surf shops and surf bars here. The strait between Africa and Europe means that there is always a strong wind blowing from the Atlantic to the Mediterranean and vice versa. Crazy people surf from Tarifa to Africa and back. However, this is life-threatening due to the strong ocean currents. More information at:
