My husband and I will be in Tarifa with our two small children (a 3 year old and a 13 month old) in May. We will be taking day trips to Gibraltar and Tangier and will visit Ronda the day we leave Tarifa (on the way to Granada). This means we will have a full day to spend just in Tarifa. We had a few questions about our stay in Tarifa:
So far, I see there is a church and a castle to see, as well as the Isla de las Palomas, which we plan to walk out to. I know there is whale watching, etc. I would say we would just spend a day on the beach but is the beach really a "beachy" place where a family could park in the sand for the day and hang out? I've read a lot of stuff about the wind so I wasn't sure.
Can you rent a car in Tarifa? I have read some things about the beach in Bolonia, as well as some Roman ruins, but it doesn't sound like there is public transportation available to get us there...if there is, we'd love to know about it!
Also, we have the option of visiting Gibraltar on a Friday or a Sunday. Which day do you think would be best?
