Definitely recommend to stop here, Even if a quick one, to take pictures and look across the Straits and see Africa. When winds are from the north, Poniente, is the best time because you can see clear across to the other side and make out...More

Remember this little lay by from many years ago when it was just a convenient pull in. Well, it's still just a lay by but it now has a small cafe/shop for the obligatory ice cream whilst you are enjoying the views. On a good...More

Driving on N-340 Tarifa to Algercias, approx half way on the side of road. Little car park and viewing point to view the north African coast line. Good spot to take photos.

It is a great place with breathtaking views. You can see Africa on top of the fog of the sea, nice breeze. Downside of it it's the shop located near the Mirador. Carefull as it's a bit expensive.

Visited last week . Spectacular views with Africa appearing over the fog across the water . Drinks and food quite expensive but given its a tourist trap understandable . Toilet system of payment doesn't work !

Best place to have a look to Estrecho, drink a fresh or soft drink and enjoy the great view and a good parking

This is a great location at the top of the hill overlooking Tarifa and surrounded by wind turbines. There is plenty of parking and you can either just enjoy the view or pop into the cafe. Food there is basic but good sized portions and...More

The location is a picture hotspot but it's such a shame they don't maximize the area with a better restaurant serving better food/products and/or drinks. It's like a poor excuse for a convenience store that's bland and boring. Sandwiches were forgettable.
