EDIT: Petrol station mentioned above (Repsol) is good for Tarifa/Gibraltar as most of the traffic to Sevilla/Jerez sticks to the left line to turn into N-443 road. Walk another 5-10min along that road (viaduct) and on your right hand side you will have Septa petrol station. The traffic there is a bit smaller, but it has plenty of space for the cars to stop and all the heavy traffic from Cadiz port pass through there. I've hitchhiked there a couple of times.

Hitchhiking out

North towards Jerez, Sevilla

Walk down along the Avenida de Cayetano del Toro until the last petrol station (on your right) before the split-up between N-443 and CA-33. Ask people and/or use signs (even though they didn't actually work well, so rather try your Spanish). We got dropped on the motorway near Jerez from where it's a short walk to the next petrol station, it didn't take too long to get a lift to Sevilla then.

EDIT: Petrol station mentioned above (Repsol) is good for Tarifa/Gibraltar as most of the traffic to Sevilla/Jerez sticks to the left line to turn into N-443 road. Walk another 5-10min along that road (viaduct) and on your right hand side you will have Septa petrol station. The traffic there is a bit smaller, but it has plenty of space for the cars to stop and all the heavy traffic from Cadiz port pass through there. I've hitchhiked there a couple of times. Waiting time +-20min

South (with a ferry)

Trucks are allowed to take one person + driver. Hitching to e.g. Las Palmas should be possible (untested).
