Hotel THe Tarifa Lances lies in the municipality of Tarifa, just 100 kilometers away from Cádiz, capital of the province. Tarifa, called “Al-Yazirat Tarif” (Tarif Island) by the Muslims, gives the first name to our hotel. The famous Lances Beach, a natural protected area of more than ten kilometers length and approximately 200 hectares, gives the second name. In it, the waters of the rivers Jara, Vega and Salado become one. Also, it is a space of great importance for migratory birds that journey from and to Africa. In this coast you will admire kilometers of find and golden sand as well as crystal-clear waters that have no need to envy other spots on the planet. With this landscape on the one hand, and Point Tarifa or Marroqui on the other, there is no doubt that Hotel THe Tarifa Lances lies in a privileged space. Furthermore, an unrivalled natural landscape and a spectacular natural monument embrace it. The Natural Park Los Alcornocales is the largest oak forest in Spain. Due to the diversity of its reliefs, it offers a wide activity range for nature and risk-taking sports. The Natural Park of El Estrecho (i.e. strait) has a great ecological, landscape, historical and cultural value with an extraordinary quality. Also, it is part of the Intercontinental Biosphere Reserve of the Mediterranean Sea. The biodiversity of this enclave has an incalculable value and is a unique space, as it is the first reserve that has a sea within its limits.
