from the Overlook of the Strait
The Overlook of the Strait (Mirador del Estrecho) is a scenic overlook  over the Strait of Gibraltar  located within the municipal borders of Tarifa, Spain  6 kilometres (3.7 mi) from its urban centre. The overlook is 300 metres above sea level.
The scenic overlook provides outstanding views over the Strait of Gibraltar and the African coast just opposite. On clear days, it is possible to have an uninterrupted view of the Spanish city of Ceuta (with Monte Hacho)  at the East end of the coast (to the left); Jebel Musa,  the highest elevation on the coast (the most likely African Pillar of Hercules, Abyla); and the Moroccan port of Tanger-Med  (to the right of Jebel Musa).
These photos were taken in March 2018 and show tourists taking photos from this outstanding overlook.
