Jimena is located only a few kilometres from the southernmost point in Europe, which is in Tarifa. It is not on the coastline but the sea and the beaches are only 20 minutes away. Jimena is truly a working inland Andalusian village, not a pretty-picture artifact created for tourists.
Access to the village is easy: 1.5 hours from the airports of Málaga or Jerez, 40 minutes from Gibraltar, 2.5 from Seville. Spotless trains stop just below the village and there is a bus service from Algeciras and La Línea.
Road access to the rest of Andalucía and Spain is excellent. Southern Portugal is close by, too, as is Morocco, just across the Straits of Gibraltar. (Check GoogleMaps here.)
