Except for obvious old part of Algeciras worth seeing it is very vibrant area with restaurants and bars around frequented with a lot of people. Particularly in evening hours. Restaurants and bars are with very affordable or we could even say, very cheap prices.

€22 per person, but pop into your local McDonalds (which I'm embarrassed to say we did) and get €2 discount.
Free parking too!
Cracking fun, awesome rides, not too busy
Location felt weird as it almost felt like we were in a city centre, but that soon disappears when you slide down the Kamikaze!!
We didn't bother "hiring" our own inflatables and it didn't slow us down at all!
Food not bad value either considering they've got you in there
All in all a great day and kids say the hi light of our holiday (kids range from 7-17, so fun for everyone!)
A must if you're able to get here

This beach is about 6 km from Algeciras and has beautiful clean sand.
View is beautiful as bay looks across at Gibraltar and although a lot of ships pass, they are quite far away and are no problem at all.
Very long and plenty room and is not crowded. Car park is quite big but not big enough as beach is very long.
Simple beach type restaurants, ice cream, cafes,bars and shops on the Promenade.

Mercado Ingeniero Torroja is an open air market located at one end of a historical walk around Algeciras. The market has colorful stalls where fresh fruits, vegetables, clothing, pottery, and leather goods are sold. It is a multicultural center where people from around the Mediterranean sell their goods. The plaza is home to a unique circular meat market that specializes in fish. This round building is a historical and architectural site to see. Continuing along through the market and up the hill, is the historical walk of the city. Go early because the market closed at 2:00P.M.

We booked renfe train from Toulouse in France to Cordoba Spain in advance. Total amount was €511 for 3 person. 3 transits from Toulouse to Narbonne to Madrid Atocha and finally Cordoba. The train from Toulouse to Narborne was just a normal slow train with no sitting. It cost us €71.50. Then we had to get down to another train from Narbonne to Madrid costing us €252.
The train was not high speed as claimed. Seats were not comfortable. Aisle narrow and no free wifi. I had a seat facing another passengers and I could not stretch my legs without kicking her.
Finally we need to get down the train and board another train from Madrid to Cordoba. Long way to walk from one station to the other. The tickets cost us €188.10.
If you have travel by Kiwirail from Wellington to Auckland which offers so much cheaper tickets you will see the differences. Luggages check in and you do not need to carry or run from one station to another. Service is tip top. Seats are very comfortable. Or if you talk about high speed train try Japan Shinkansen.
Overall we were very disappointed with Renfe. Expensive yet not up to standard.
This is my first and last time taking Renfe train

This is a great beach if you have little children as the water is shallow for a good way. No stones, white sand, plenty of different parking spots. But take your own picnic. There are bars for drinks but the food is not up to much.

No bells or whistles but with the usual array of plaster saints and coloured glass typical of the parish churches in Southern Spain (or any other part, in fact). If you don't plan to visit the churches of Granada, Sevilla or Cordoba tale the opportunity here. Well worht the 20 minutes or so out of the sun

Una de las maravillas naturales que podemos disfrutar en Algeciras. Se trata de un sendero bonito y relativamente fácil para hacer por cualquiera; ya sea corriendo, andando... Tiene algunas zonas increíbles como molinos antiguos, el llano de las tumbas, la propia tumba del capitán, el río...y una cascada preciosa. Solo tiene un problema, y es que a veces, el ser humano es el peor enemigo de la naturaleza. Un domingo a mediodía está lleno de gente sentada frente a la cascada comiendo y dejando allí basura. Por suerte, hay gente que ama la naturaleza y limpia incluso lo que otros dejan.
Se trata de un lugar imprescindible para todo aquel que viva en Algeciras y en el Campo de Gibraltar por su cercanía y belleza, y por supuesto para todo visitante que le guste disfrutar de la naturaleza.

This beach is really good for young children as the water is very shallow so they can paddle about safely , there is reasonable parking if you go about 11-00 no problem there are one or two cafes which is handy for drinks etc ,overall a good clean safe beach .
