Palomas Island of Tarifa
Isla de las Palomas is a small island linked to the town of Tarifa by an artificial dam. It is the southernmost point of the Iberian Peninsula and is also known as Tarifa Point or Moroccan Point. Isla de las Palomas is considered to be one of the best representations of Tarifa.
The highway that runs along the seawall makes a geographical divide between the Mediterranean and the Atlantic Ocean.
At the end of the island lies the Tarifa lighthouse, built in the second half of the eighteenth century, measuring 33 meters in height in total and 48.3 meters above sea level.
Visitors have restricted access to the end of the Isla de las Palomas´ jetty due to the fact that the rest is closed to the public since the other part is maintained for military purposes.
