It doesnt't seem a strong obstacle. Are there guards 24\7 standing on the beach?

Yes, they are always watching that corner through patrols or cameras.

No crossing of any sort there at all as far as I know, as Maxxime said. Understandable back when the border was relatively closed under fascism but it's been 40 years.

Fascism was on both sides, except for a brief period in 1974-75.

I read in a Portuguese border blog once that during that period there was some fear in the Portuguese government that Spain would invade.

P.S.: On the 1st and 2nd photo, Spain is only on the right side of the dam and of the new bridge.



20 Km north

I watched a film (more a comedy than an historical movie) about some guys from France travelling by car to Portugal in the imediate aftermath of the 1974 revolution.
When they arrive at the border with Spain, guards told them that they can't cross because only people going to Spain are allowed and not those in transit to Portugal (and how they knew that they were going to Portugal?)
So, they ask to a villager how to do and he suggested to take a dirt track in the forest to avoid the checkpoint. Obviously it wasn't possible in real life, first because the border was probably well patrolled beck then, second because without an entry stamp to Spain they won't be able to leave the country legally.
When they are entering Portugal, they found that Spaniards have closed the border and they have to wait a couple of days. When the border reopens, they're detained by Spanish because they found in the car a badge with a hammer and sickle and they were suspected to be revolutionaries. After a lot of questining, they're let to go into Portugal (and nobody noticed the lack of entry stamp...)

I assume that Europeans did need passports to visit the fascist Spain and Portugal, if it was possible just with ID (I don't think so) it's another story.
