The Strait Natural Park, nestled between Getares and Cabo de Gracia, stands as the southernmost gem of the European continent and is a part of the Transcontinental Mediterranean Biosphere Reserve. This maritime and terrestrial protected area offers a unique experience, seamlessly blending elements from Europe and Africa in the heart of the Gibraltar Strait.

The park's coastline is a symphony of breathtaking landscapes. From abrasion platforms and cliffs in the east of Tarifa to golden dunes and sandy beaches in the west, each corner reveals the visual richness of this protected space.

 

Seasonal Haven for Birds and Marine Species

In autumn and spring, the Natural Park becomes a sanctuary for countless bird species, attracting bird watchers from around the world. Moreover, its marine ecosystems harbor endangered species such as pilot whales, dolphins, orcas, sperm whales, and rorquals, providing unique opportunities for sightings from local boats in Tarifa.
