Miksang Photography at the Coast of Light

Tarifa is a coastal village in the southernmost part of Spain, in Andalusia on the Costa de la Luz - the Coast of Light, known for its Moorish culture. Here is where the Mediterranean Sea and the Atlantic Ocean meet at the Strait of Gibraltar. Tarifa is also known as a favorite kitesurfing resort, with a mix of local Spanish residents and European residents. From Tarifa you can see Morocco at a distance of 11 kilometers.


From the roof terrace of the residence DarCilla Guesthouse you have a daily beautiful view on the Rif Mountains and the coast of Morocco and the typical white center of Tarifa. The oceanic waters of Tarifa are home to dolphins, whales, tuna, turtles, flying fish and a lot more oceanic wealth. In DarCilla Guesthouse Martina and Zoë welcome you with great great care and involvement in the apartment of your choice, so you can fully enjoy your stay and Miksang training in the indoor training room.
