  • Wow, breathtaking. You can se the coast of Afrika and even Tanger. A place to stop and enjoy the beauty of mother nature
  • Very good views of Africa from here , feels like you could touch it. The coffeshop is just that , nothing fancy.
  • . One of the great viewpoints of the world! Mind you, I haven't seen that many of the great viewpoints of the world . . . but this is great. As long as . . . As long as it's a clear day. If it is, you can see the sea sparkling all the way across to Jebel Musa - the other pillar of Hercules, the first being Jebel Tariq - AKA Gibraltar. If it isn't, all you'll see is mist and fog. To check the weather before you go, go to Tarifa on the BBC weather site and then click on the TABLE on the right top. Then scroll down to see visibility. There's what can best be described as a lorry-drivers' caff on the carpark, where you can get snacks and a coffee or a beer. But the view on a clear day, taking in two continents, is magic, just magic. .
  • Good views, nice little shop. Sells ice creams and tourist bit and peices. Plenty of places to park.
  • Amazing view if Africa from the hilltop location. Great stop to rest from drinking too.
