Hotel Reina Cristina is located near the Algeciras port, one of the major areas in Europe known for its connection with the African continent. Algeciras lies to the west of Gibraltar on the far side of the bay. Although much of the town is modern,
the old town
around the Plaza Alta is very attractive and you can find many beautifully old buildings and churches
as well as charming squares
tucked away amongst the narrow streets.
The pristine waters of Tarifa
are only a few miles away, with its magnificent beaches
and waves of more than five feet, perfect for surf lovers.
Also noteworthy is its proximity to other interesting places such as Gibraltar, Marbella and Alcornocales Natural Park
to name a few.
Popular excursions include whale watching cruises
in the Bay of Gibraltar, trips to Tarifa to watch the bird migrations
, and ferries to Gibraltar, Morocco and Tangiers.
