Algeciras is primarily a port and industrial centre, sprawling round the far side of the bay to Gibraltar. It is an industrial city that acts mainly as a stopping place en route to Tangier and Morocco, with about eight crossings running every day. The port area is busiest during July and August when migrant workers return home for there holidays from their work throughout Europe. The city lacks the beauty of other Spanish cities but does offer a genuine atmosphere that you may not find in many other Costa resorts.

There is a strong Arab influence in Algeciras and you will find several traditional shops in the backstreets where you can sample traditional Moroccan mint tea.

There are many reasonably priced restaurants boasting great views of the nearby Rock of Gibraltar.

There are quiet parks and tree lined plazas, offering an escape from the rushing travellers.
