posted by Cathy 19 July 2015 Spain's Costa del Sol, AND Spanish South West Coast (COMING SOON)
The Coast of the Sun (Costa del Sol) is the name of the Spanish coastline we travel along during this section of our trip. We also head inland and have an amazing experience at Archidona where we happened upon their Good Friday parade and then stop in Granada to look at Alhambra's Islamic palace. The homes built into the rocky landscape near Guadix were very interesting but heading back to the coast again we stop at one of our favourite campsites so far - La Isleta. Just beautiful!

We were on the coast of Spain at Terifa with Morocco less than 2 hours ferry ride away. We thought it would be a shame not to hop over to Africa while we were here. We left the camper in Terifa and booked a ferry and guided tour for the day. Unfortunately the fog rolled in that morning but eventually it lifted enough for us to head off. We saw the sights of Tanger and surrounds with the Kasbar being one of the highlights.
Next stop was Gibraltar. The rock loomed out above the coastline as we approached, looking very impressive. We got our passports stamped at the border as we passed from Spain into this outpost of the United Kingdom. A walking tour through the main town centre was followed by a small group tour (6 of us in a minibus). Highlights were St Michael's Cave and the Gibraltar Tunnels. Later that afternoon we re-entered Spain and followed the coastline stopping at some lovely beaches. Missed the last Blog Entry? See all entries on the Trips and Photos page.
