I'm interested going to Spain and visiting Tarifa with the intent of crossing the Strait of Gibralter to Tangiers. There are lots of articles and posts on how to do the crossing, but I'd like to know what the best way to get to Tarifa. I know there are not airports or train stations in Tarifa, so it'll have to be by bus. Is there a nearby city that I can fly into and then take the bus to Tarifa? It seems like flying into Madrid would be a real far bus ride from Tarifa. Ideas?

Thanks!

Madrid is the cheapest option, but you can also fly to Lisbon (slightly closer), Malaga (much closer), or Gibraltar (very close, but also very expensive). From Madrid, you could also get a high speed train to Malaga or Seville (Cadiz is a bit closer, and is supposed to be connected sometime in 2012), then continue by bus.

Depending on how time available, budget, and what you want to see fit together, the extra cost of flying further south, maybe even just flying straight to Morrocco, might be worth it to you.

Yes, I noticed that as well, that flights to Gibralter are very very expensive!

It looks like getting to Tarifa will involve at the least, a flight and bus. Thanks for your help!

Definitely true. Madrid is the best option and then find accommodation that will suit your taste as well as your budget.
