Agree with Prudie. Public transport pretty good, but you will have a much more flexible time of it with a hire car. If you get the chance, visit the towns and cities in the province of Cadiz: Jerez de la Frontera, for the Sherry and wonderful fresh seafood, (its two 'sister' towns, Puerto de Santa Maria and Sanlucar de Barrameda form part of the Sherry triangle...

I think this comes to personal choice and if you have the funds to hire a car for that length of time. I believe the Spanish rail system down that side is very efficient however i'd want a car as you're limited to station to station and then finding a bus if you want to go off route. I'd like the freedom to do that by car - although you would have to add in the cost of tolls on their motorways.

Gibraltar is an awful place, but worth popping on for an hour or so just to say you have been there.
Don't be surprised if the Spanish authorities are playing silly-b----ers when you get to the border with Gibraltar. They like making a nuisance of themselves from time to time, and you may be unlucky.
With six weeks available you could do it on a bike...
The border police are particularly tiresome on Fridays.
I went to Gibraltar a few years ago and never had a problem at the border.
