Last week I spent a very relaxing week in Tarifa, Spain, with a couple of friends.
The week consisted of heading to the beach and BBQ-ing at our villa and a couple of day trips to Tarifa and Gibraltar.
We flew to Malaga from Weze with RyanAir and rented a couple of cars to get us around in the area.
Tarifa is also known as kite surfers paradise because there's usually a strong wind.
One of us brought their kites, and we also rented a wind surf board which is a lot harder than it seems.
Tarifa consists of a relatively modern part with many hotels and apartments and an old town with small alleys. From the harbor, you can take the ferry to Morocco.
Close to Tarifa lies Gibraltar, a prominent limestone ridge that is part of England. You'll need a passport to enter the city.
The main attraction in Gibraltar is the cable cart to the top of the ridge, from where you have a great view. There's also a ton of monkeys.
After descending from the ridge, we took the car to the most northern edge of Gibraltar.
I'm on a boat
On most of our bucket lists, one of the things was a deep-sea fishing trip, so we found a boat with a captain and spent the day on the ocean.
