Tangier ferry to Tarifa or Algeciras

Whats better? I know to get to Algeciras we have to go to Tangier Med and it take about an hour. But what gives is a better view of the straights?

If you go from Tarifa you could try exploring the surroundings whilst on dry land. I seem to remember an old castle there so would be worth my time to explore this.

the only port operating trips to Spain is Tangier Med. the old port is under construction to become a resort.

Algeciras is not interesting at all , Tarifa is a nice town . As for view of the straits look at a map and see the route , tangier ville to Tarifa is more direct and tanger med is like an S route .

"the only port operating trips to Spain is Tangier Med. the old port is under construction to become a resort."

Absolutely wrong. The old port is being redeveloped, but the ferries from Tanger to Tarifa are still running.

Yes, except mine isn't an opinion, it's fact.

Here's the schedule of the FRS company that runs the Tarifa to Tanger route: http://www.frs.es/home-area/fahrplan.html

You can see photos of the redevelopment of the Tanger port at www.skyscrapercity.com/showthread.php…

JackE is incorrect. You can get a ferry from Tarifa to Tanger Port, which is the old port.

Whilst this is destined to become a marina ferries do still dock here.

This is a blessing as it cuts out a lot of time and inconvenience travelling from TM to TP.

The time I was there I couldn't get any ticket at the old port, then the policeman sent me to the new port, but today I read about it and you are 100% right. I apologise for this mistake which was based on my own experience.

Hi,

Does anybody knows how much is the cost to take a bus from Tarifa to Algeciras Port and also another question does ferry tickets becomes cheaper when the date draws closer? as it seems for this month it is cheaper than booking in advance for a date months later? or is it because it is in winter? Any clues there? thanks
