Algeciras cheap all inclusive holidays

Algeciras Overview

African inspiration: Algeciras is the largest city in the Bay of Gibraltar, the Spanish district closest to Northern Africa. As such influences from Morocco (the nearest African country) like Arabic tea shops and decorative mosques can be seen all over the city. Holidays to Algeciras offer a chance to really soak up the international culture whilst enjoying the European flavour of Spain too.

Natural wonders: Algeciras holidays have become increasingly popular with tourists largely thanks to its closeness to vast swathes of countryside. You can visit places like Tarifa (which has a dreamy beach) and Gibraltar, which is home to the famous triangular Rock of Gibraltar.

Attractions in Algeciras

Rock of Gibraltar: Although the Rock of Gibraltar is actually 28km away from Algeciras, we thought we’d mention it as it’s one of the main sights for holidays to Europe, let alone holidays to Algeciras. Much of the top of this sloping rock is a specially dedicated nature reserve which is home to Europe’s only wild colony of monkeys. There’s also a Moorish castle dating back as far as 710 AD and a labyrinth of caves and tunnels which were used by Neanderthals over 30,000 years ago.

Activities in Algeciras

Parque de las Acacias: This leafy, peaceful park is the bigger of two which are located in the centre of Algeciras. You’ll come across stone statues, water wheels and fountains, making it a perfect place for relaxing during your holidays to Algeciras.

Trip to Tarifa: Around 45 minutes by car, it’s worth taking a trip to Tarifa to see its Moorish castles, and it’s also near to an ancient Roman city named Baelo Claudia. The area of Tarifa has become popular for bird watching holidays as many birds cross the path of the Gibraltar Straits on their migrations.

Bay of Gibraltar: A breeding area for many forms of marine life, the best way to observe the hundreds of dolphins and whales which live in the Bay of Gibraltar is by sailing out to sea. Of course, you could always go on a dive here too, and see them in a habitat that’s even more natural to them – under the water!

Bahia Park: This fun water park is based in the centre of Algeciras. It’s a great way to spend an afternoon if you’re on family holidays to Algeciras. You’ll enjoy the colourful rides, especially the super-fast Kamikaze!

Beaches in Algeciras

Playa Getares: The largest of the beaches in Algeciras is over a mile of soft golden sand which leads into the calm waters of the Mediterranean Sea. Just like all of the beaches in Algeciras, it’s possible to see the imposing sight of the Rock of Gibraltar in the distance.

San Garcia: This well-facilitated beach has light golden sand leading into calm, cooling waters. There are also water sports available out to sea, such as windsurfing and waterskiing.

Playa Riconcillo: This 6km long beach has ample space for sunbathing and relaxing whilst on your holidays to Algeciras. But that’s not the only things this beach is about, as it has a beach football pitch and volleyball nets set up throughout the summer holidays season.

Restaurants in Algeciras

La Brujidera: This authentic tapas restaurant in the centre of Algeciras may look rather plain from the outside, but its rustic interior suits the simple, unfussy menu. Expect lots of little dishes of delights like fried squid, paella and tortilla.

Montes: This classy restaurant offers fine a la carte dining at a fraction of its usual price. The fish is highly recommended here, and look out for the excellent value set menu which has a selection of three courses for just 10 Euros. At that kind of price, you could eat here every day and enjoy very cheap holidays to Algeciras!

La Sal: There’s a good variety of international cuisine at this friendly restaurant. You’ll find lots of different dishes here with everything from Greek Salad to classic Margherita Pizzas and Banoffee Pie.

Nightlife in Algeciras

Spanish bars: Holidays to Algeciras aren’t really famed for their lively nightlife, but you’ll appreciate the charms of authentically Spanish bars. Look out for Bar Lo De Silva and Bar Trato, as their names suggest, they offer a traditional Spanish drinking experience. Interestingly, due to the close proximity to Morocco, Algeciras holidays also feature a number of Moroccan tea rooms where you can savour the refreshing flavours of cinnamon and nutmeg or even partake in smoking a shisha!

Shopping in Algeciras

Puerta Europa: This large, modern shopping centre has many British brands you’ll recognise such as Primark, C&A (yes, it’s still open over here!) and Accessorize.

El Corte Ingles: Spain’s largest department store chain, you’ll find everything you need in this huge shop, from clothes for the whole family to homeware and fresh food.

Moroccan influences: Wander further into the smaller streets in the centre of Algeciras and you’ll discover independent tea shops and Moroccan food shops. So you can even buy delicacies originating from Africa without ever crossing continents! Of course, if you did want to discover the completely different culture just over the water, it’s only a short ferry ride to Ceuta (a Spanish city in North Africa) or Tangier in Morocco. Here you’ll find you can spend all day shopping to your heart’s content. Be sure to barter in the many markets and you’ll get some amazing bargains on Arabic carpets and elegant fabrics, sure to wow your family and friends when you come back from holidays to Algeciras.
