Most people come here endeavoring for Tarifa, a sleepy surf town with a marvelous Sandy beach worshipped by kite surfers. But move ahead along the coast beyond huge wind turbines and abandoned fields (shrouded up with sunflowers during the summers) and you will be rewarded with Zahara de los Atunes, a little wind-struck town named after its previous occupation as a tuna-fishing-town.
