Spain - Tarifa

I received this postcard in the Slavic countries & Rest of the world RR :) It's already my 2nd Spanish card :) It shows the village of Tarifa in Southern Spain. According to the sender, it gets really windy there and there's a lot of surfing :)

Tarifa is a small town on the southernmost coast of the Iberian Peninsula. It is part of the province of Cádiz, which, in turn, is part of the Andalusia region. The town is located on the Costa de la Luz ("coast of light") and across the Straits of Gibraltar from Morocco, from which the lights of Tarifa are visible at night. The municipality includes Punta de Tarifa, the southernmost point in continental Europe. There are five smaller villages who depend economically on Tarifa. They are Tahivilla, Facinas, Bolonia and Zahara de los Atunes.
