  • “I hate to mark Tarifa down from excellent as it is was spotlessly clean, comfortably furnished and Is so well equipped, even down to providing 2 smart TVs.”


    However, there are two negativities in our opinion which impacted on our enjoyment of our stay. The first was the firmness of the mattresses, which affected our quality if sleep and left us with aching hips each morning. The second was the terrace which we were unable to comfortably use due to the number of seagulls nesting on the roof above and their continual coming and going. The picture showing a lovely clean terrace with a table set out for a meal in the apartment’s advertising is not accurate as it was dirty with seagull mess. There is an awning, but there was no means of lowering it, which would have allowed us to sunbath under its protection from the seagulls. There are wonderful views from the terrace which enjoys all day sunshine and was one of the draws to choosing Tarifa. I don’t mean to be negative as in all other aspects we cannot fault Tarifa, which is in a wonderful position in a wonderful location. ***Owner Response*** We are pleased to hear you had a good holiday at 3 Tarifa and are sorry you found the mattresses too firm for your liking and that you were bothered by the seagulls this week. Being so close to the sea and seagulls being a protected species, they are inevitable - we find that when we sit on the balcony, the seagulls stay away. The glass patio table does sometimes need cleaning during the weeks stay, which again is unavoidable being so close to the sea. Thank you for taking the time to leave us this feedback and we hope you visit the area again soon.

About the location


Modbury 6 miles; Plymouth 12 miles.

Bigbury-on-Sea is located in an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty and is ideal for family holidays. Dusted with sand and lapped by shallow waters, the beach offers safe fun for groups particularly if you’ve got children in tow. In addition, Bigbury-on-Sea beach is dotted with rock pools, so there’s plenty of entertainment for budding marine biologists. There’s also a wide and varied selection of watersports available to visitors who prefer their holidays to feature a little adrenaline rush. Windsurfing and kite-surfing are popular here, with hire facilities located right on the beach. To give you some peace of mind, there are lifeguards present at Bigbury-on-Sea beach during May to September and the beach also has a first-aid room. You can even take the dog onto the beach, although they are restricted to certain areas during the summer. Bigbury’s most famous landmark is Burgh Island, which overlooks the beach itself. The island is accessible at low tide, when the waters reveal a causeway that links it to the beach. However, when the tide is in you can still reach the island by hitching a ride on the popular and unique ‘sea tractor’. Burgh Island boasts an award-winning hotel, elegant and rather genteel, it’s an ideal romantic retreat for couples. Explore the South Devon coast with its fabulous sandy beaches and its breathtakingly beautiful coastal path or simply take time to visit some of the charming estuary towns and villages dotted throughout the area, such as Salcombe, Kingsbridge and Dartmouth. The city of Plymouth and the wild open spaces of Dartmoor are also both close at hand.

Note: Sorry, no short breaks
