  • Not your usual review here, but as you reach the end of the causeway, if you turn left onto the beach, examine the rocks you find there and the cliff. These rocks are a Miocene Oyster Bed, 5 to 10 mil...  more »
  • Also called island of Tarifa, situated opposite the town. Between Playa Chica and the beach los Lances, part a road that brings you closer to the pigeon Island, where you can see on your left the Mediterranean Sea and on your right the Atlantic Ocean. Until the beginning of the 19TH century the island was separated from the town of Tarifa, until the current road/highway was built, is the most southern place of Spain and of course Europe. In 2003 it was declared Natural Park of the Strait, although you need to adapt it for the visit of the many people who come to see it.

We stopped for a few minutes on the way to Tarifa Cadiz from Gibraltar for the sake of a couple of pics with the flag of his country. There's fun for the fans of water sports
