Hiking Colada de la Costa is fascinating, with stunning rock pools and beaches along the coastal route. The view across the Straits of Gibraltar to the African continent is stunning and on a clear day, really detailed.
There is no motorhome parking at the start of the walk although there are ample aires and campsites in and around Tarifa.
Yes, there are lots of opportunities for swimming and rock pooling on the way.
Lots of bars and cafes in Tarifa but nothing on route or the the Torre.
It will be busy around the coves and beaches during summer, the rest of the hike is generally quiet.
Hiking Costa de la Colada, Tarifa, Spain
A fascinating coastal walk along cliffs and bays, with spectacular views across the Strait of Gibraltar to the African continent.
There are fascinating rock formations in the water, along beaches great for a lunch stop and swimming. There is a cliff top route and a route slightly higher up through the pastures, we moved between the two as the clifftop route can be difficult underfoot. The route is well marked from Maria Coronel in Tarifa and all the way along to the Torre Vigia Guadalmesi, where it ends. The distance quoted is for a return hike.
