Car Hire Algeciras

Algeciras Guide

So what can you do in your couple of days in Algeciras? The city has begun a move away from industry to tourism and promotes bird watching trips to Tarifa to watch the migratory birds in spring and autumn. Storks, flamingos, geese, swallows and more pass through this westernmost migration route. If you’re not a twitcher then spend your time whale watching on a boat trip out into the bay or simply walk around the beautiful Plaza Alta or spend an afternoon in the historic San Isidro district sipping a cool drink after photographing the delicate Moorish architectural features.


Algeciras Directions

The airport is 10 km east of Algeciras. If driving a hire car yourself take the CA34 north from the airport then the E15. It takes around 20 minutes.


Algeciras Parking

Car parking at Gibraltar Airport is changing with the construction of the new terminal. The parking is now east of the terminal in a new multi-storey car park that can take 220 cars. Three more long term facilities are being built further out from the terminal building by the Eastern Beach.
