The Campo de Gibraltar, where the Mediterranean meets the Atlantic and where Europe practically touches Africa.
The Campo de Gibraltar is the Spanish name given to the coastal stretch covering the southernmost point in continental Europe. As the name suggests, another of the outstanding local features is “The Rock of Gibraltar”.
It is a truly spectacular area, not just because of the mere 12 kilometres that separate the two continents, or the and the majestic Moroccan mountains towering above the Strait of Gibraltar. The vegetation is exuberant thanks to the humidity arising from the nearby sea masses, and yet it also home to some of the most beautiful beaches in Spain, including the impressive sand dunes at Bolonia.
Walking is relaxed: there are no high peaks on the Spanish side of the Strait, and yet the scenery does not disappoint and the views over to the Moroccan Rif are amazing.
