Punta Camorro Migration Watchpoint

Tarifa, Cadiz, Andalusia  >  Spain

A vismig (visible migration) watchpoint for raptors during migration.

Added by James


If the winds are right, there's a very good chance of seeing multiple species of migrating raptos from here.



Most people drive down from a turn off on the N-340 coming from Tarifa. It's the second right coming from the town. A road winds up and down for a couple of kilometres to reach this spot. Once there, you can stand, sit, ot walk around a little but most people seem to stand in a fixed position to watch.

You can also walk from a track by the shore near to Tarifa Castle at the Eastern edge of the town.
