The nearest airports are Malaga (AGP) and Jerez de la Frontera (XRY). Malaga is about 160km northwest of Tarifa and has good connection both by car and by bus.
Jerez de la Frontera is about 113km northeast of Tarifa and has good road connections, although traveling by public transport you have to change buses in Cádiz or in Algeciras.
Leave the Malaga airport in the direction of Cádiz. From the fast road take the exit that indicates ALGECIRAS / CÁDIZ. From here they go by the N340 that is incorporated in the A7. Once on the A7, you can choose between the "normal" A7 motorway or the AP7 motorway. The AP7 is faster, but toll.
Once in Algeciras, keep straight, following the TARIFA sign. Leaving Algeciras they are automatically incorporated into the N340 that arrives at Tarifa. Take the first exit to Tarifa and continue straight until the traffic lights. Here turn to the RIGHT joining in the street BATALLA DEL SALADO. Turn now the SECOND street to the right to the street ANTONIO MAURA. From there you can see our Hostel.
Leave the Jerez airport in the direction of Cádiz. They are on the A4 that borders the city of Jerez. Always stay in Cádiz direction until you leave the Jerez area. When they arrive at the polygon Tres Caminos, shortly after Puerto Real and shortly before San Fernando, it ends at A4. Here you must choose the A48 in the direction of ALGECIRAS (from here DO NOT follow further in the direction of Cádiz!). Continue on the A48, which when you pass through Vejer de la Frontera, will automatically become the N340 that reaches Tarifa. They take the first entrance to Tarifa and continue straight on the main street, BATALLA DEL SALADO. There is a yellow sign on this street indicating the street where they should turn, (counting from the gas station would be the ninth street to the LEFT), just at the corner where the real estate TARIFACASAS. They are already in the street ANTONIO MAURA from where they can see our Hostel.
