Fronterizo is a small coastal town in northern Tara, on the border with Tamarindia. Historically part of the Tara region of Latina, the town lies between 10–230 feet (3–70 m) above sea level, rising steeply northward and westward from the sea front onto limestone cliffs. The older part of the town lies around the two beaches and is protected by a rocky headland.

With a population of around 25,000 Fronterizo is the largest inhabited area on the North Tara coast. The town has fishing and service industries, as well as being a tourist destination. Its close proximity to the border with neighbouring Tamarindia has resulted in a large influx of Tamarindians, who make up approaching half the population in the town. Consequently Fronterizo is known for its Tamarindian feel.
Inhabitants of the town are known as Fronteros.
