Hi all,

I've seen several references to a watch point called 'Traffico' - presumably near Tarifa - but none of my references say where it is. Anyone know?

It`s at the turn off at Km 85 on the Cadiz - Malaga road just past the turnoff for Tarifa. I`ll send you a detailed description

Thanks Mike.   A quick look on 'GoogleEarth' shows a turn off on the right (i.e. coastwards) immediately before (i.e. 20-30m) the turning to Tarifa.  This only goes a short distance to what looks like (from aerial photos) to be a sewage farm.  I take it that the turning to Trafico is the one a little further on towards Algeciras.  This road  appears much longer - how far down it is 'Trafico'?  Also isn't this one of the roads with a warning sign at the turning that it's military land and thus 'no admittance?  Is it OK to drive down here?  Thanks again,

John

I don`t think there`s a sign at the turn off and I`ve a feeling that the military land will just be the part where the building on the photo is, right near the sea. I was told you`d almost certainly see other birders`cars parked nearby - if that`s any comfort!!
