Place to drop a car and trailer in Tarifa

hello

I’m planning to drive to Tarifa (or any other place nearby) with a trailer and some bikes.

Any place recommendation to drop the car and trailer during some days while we go to Marrocos? Near a police station?...

As far as I know there is not any secure public parking in Tatrifa other than a car park at the ferry terminal. I'm not sure of any charges or restrictions there.

There are a number of car parks along the sea front particularly next to the Football stadium. I've parked bikes there before and they were fine, though I was staying in the appartments above.

I've heard rumours of a helpfull motorcycle club on Gibraltar, about 45 minutes away but have no details.

I know several people have parked trailers with MotoAdventours who are now based near Málaga.

Malaga is a bit far way since we will be reaching Tarifa coming from Portugal

There's a place called Faulty Fincas who might store it for you. Never used them, but waypoint is approximately N36 04.212 W5 36.182

hello

Does any one know a car parking in Tarifa that is watched over? I don’t mind to pay a fair price.

Along the coast road just west of town there is a whole string of camping places. One of them will most likely let you park your car and trailer somewhere on the grounds (hopefully at least safer) for a small fee.
