I love shopping for men’s fashion at Sam Newman, which happens to be one of my favourite stores. The best part is that they also have a branch here in Madrid! This brand is all about bringing elegance and comfort to your everyday wear, and what’s more, all their garments are ethically produced in factories located in Spain and Portugal.

They have everything you need to create a cosy yet edgy outfit. While you’re there, don’t forget to check out their Caffeinated Food Club – Bonjour Tarifa.

Where Can I Find a Flat White Coffee?

A Flat White is an espresso-based drink with a strong taste of coffee and is made with a small amount of steamed milk and a thin layer of microform (for those who still ask me what it is, and why I am obsessed with it).

Surla Tarfia is your spot! This cosy café/restaurant a stone’s throw away from the beach boasts an incredible interior and a warm atmosphere. Not only can you get the best coffee in town, but you can also work from there and enjoy delicious food. The easy-going vibe is guaranteed, making it a perfect place to relax.

Mind-blowing Food with an Ocean View

Always at Café del Mar. Located on the shore of Los Lances Beach, the freshest restaurant in Tarifa offers a delightful blend of flavours, colours, aromas, and textures in dishes representing exotic countries. From the spicy and colourful cuisine of India, and the intense and marinated flavours of Morocco, to the romantic and soft seasonings of Italy. Every Sunday you can expect a free paella, so don’t miss it!

Beach Bars with Electronic Music

Unforgettable nights are always at Gaia Beach Club, with great music, a funky crowd and parties that go on until sunrise. Nothing beats the Tarifa sunsets right at the beach!


Located right on the shores of Los Lances beach, lies the Tarifa Hotel Arte Vida and a beautiful terrace with chill-out areas. It is the perfect spot to watch exciting water sports such as windsurfing and kitesurfing. Expect fantastic music, delicious food, and refreshing drinks!

Once you are in this area you can’t miss the Afrikana Beach Bar which offers live performances and a great atmosphere.

A Secret Date Spot 

One of the most enchanting spots in Tarifa is undoubtedly the Beach Bar Hurricane, nestled among subtropical gardens that lead to miles of unspoiled beaches. From here, you can take in the breathtaking views of the Straits of Gibraltar and Morocco. This place is part of a hotel with incredible amenities, and a swimming pool, surrounded by stunning nature. I want to express my gratitude to Designliebe, who introduced me to this place. You should follow his adventures on Instagram, as he is a master of surprises.
