This website is intended to give you an insight into a town called “Tarfaya.”
Tarfaya is positioned towards the bottom of the map that depicts the Moroccan Sahara.
With approximately 6000
inhabitants (and growing) it’s a sleepy fishing village that has been awakened over recent years by the arrival then demise and now future anticipated re-arrival of the ferry from the company Naviera Armas which will link Tarfaya and Africa with Puerto Del Rosario the port of Fuerteventura, Canary Islands.
The Ferry is said to be ready to start in September and will carry passengers by November.
There is also the arrival of a wind farm, which purports to be the largest in Africa being constructed just 30 km south of Tarfaya in Tah. This project is now completed and up and running.
There has been recent work to the Desert roads heading both north and south, widening the carriageway and so making a previously perilous trip a lot safer.
The start of oil drilling off the coast line has also placed this small town firmly on the map. .
Having the coast and beaches to its west the town is otherwise surrounded by the vast Sahara Desert.
