Car hire in Tarifa

by mnez81

Are there places to hire a car in Tarifa?

Re: Car hire in Tarifa

by puerto_lover

I would be a little surprised if there was no car hire facility in Tarifa but I do know that at Algeciras there is a wide choice of rental offices. Algeciras can be reached by bus from Tarifa using the regular service provided by COMES bus company. presume that you are arriving on the Tarifa-Tangier ferry operated by FRS. If you think it may get an answer, you could send a message to FRS and ask them. They will know.
Contact detail on www.frs.es
and the bus service between Tarifa and Algeciras is on:

Thinking about this further, I think that the FRS people offer a bus transfer service to and from Algeciras to boost passenger numbers on their service. So maybe you can also check with them about this service also ?

Travel Tips for Tarifa (Cadiz)

The Wind

by keeweechic

Some of the strong winds around Tarifa at times are made up of the Levante (south easterly winds) which blow from the land and the Poniente (westerly winds) which gust from the Atlantic ocean and is more likely in the afternoon and are colder. The mountains of Morocco and Spain create something like a wind tunnel

Guzman El Bueno

by venteeocho

This little fishing town was the first point of the Moorish invasion of Southern Spain in AD711.

In 1295 Guzman El Bueno defended the town against the invading Moors. According to the local legend, the Moors captured his son and threatened to kill him if Guzman didn't surrender the town. He refused and threw down his sword with which they killed his son.

Local fishermen still use the Almadraba method of fishing using a circle of boats and nets, a practice which has not changed since 13th Century. The Tuna fishing season generally starts at the end of March and runs for about three months.
The Arab Castle of Guzman the Bueno is open to visitors. It was built in 960 AD on the orders of Caliph Abderraman III. The irregular oblong architecture has Roman influence giving rise to the theory that it was built on the remains of a Roman fort. To the east two high towers protect the entrance from the Arab town.
There is an impressive view of the shores of Morocco from the Miramar Gardens next to the Town Hall (the Ayuntamiento) at the top of the town.

Calle de la Fuente (where else?) is where you can find a pretty and unusual little fountain.

La Alameda: Typical Andalucian paved gardens where the old folk sit on wrought iron benches in the shade of the vast palm trees. Just across the road, at the entrance of the castle is a magnificent statue of local hero Guzman el Bueno, saviour of the town.
There are plenty of little tapas bars in the old town just to the east of the Alameda. Outside the Jerez Gate on the main street called Batalla del Salado (leading north out of the town) you'll find the surf shops and trendy clothes shops.

On the hills behind Tarifa are hundreds of wind turbines generating enough power for a small town. It is one of the largest wind farms in Europe.

Tarifa fans will also be interested in 'The Alchemist' by Paulo Coehlo featuring the tales of the little shepherd boy who visits Tarifa on his way to Morocco.
Buy the book 'The Alchemist' from amazon.co.uk.

Dune surfing

by Beach_dog

Not an official sport of course, but we saw many kids practicing dune surfing with pieces of board. I´m sure the sport is not too environmentally friendly either, damaging the grasses in the dunes could lead to erosion.

Los Alcornocales Natural Park

by Carmela71

Not many people know about this area (apart of locals or Tarifa lovers, even if they pass by many times as many of the hiden beaches have the access crossing them by foot.

On some areas you can park your car and read the trekking itineraries on the maps :-)

Gatos Locos

by Beach_dog

Another strange thing to see on a day out... a group of formation dancing cats :0) These cats were hanging around a Chiringuito (fish restaurant) on the beach. If someone threw a small piece of fried fish, there was a mad scramble to catch a piece.
