Visit Tangier: Your Travel Guide

Things to Do in Tangier
Tangier Kasbah
Starting at Bab Haha gate, step inside this old fort and labyrinthine mesh. It has a smattering of stalls and is doused in rich history in the form of old palaces belonging to the former sultans of Morocco. Head up the hill to be treated to views over the Atlantic and Mediterranean seas, or spot the majesty of the Atlas mountains in the distance.
Tangier’s Medina
A web of winding alleyways, Tangier’s Medina is enclosed by walls dating from the 15th century, packing in Andalusian, Moorish and Moroccan amongst its influences. Fanning outwards from Zoco Chico square, the alleyways head up the hill and out – so keep that in mind to avoid getting lost in a maze of streets. The area is eclectic, packed with stalls and just begging to be explored.
Tangier Beach
Sands spill out towards the Strait of Gibraltar from Tangier’s city beach. Malabata and the municipal beaches are both within a short distance of the city’s port, so the seafront is popular and busy. Once the sun goes down and the loungers get packed away, beach-goers can head to one of the many bars and clubs along the promenade.
Forbes Museum of Tangier
Forbes Museum of Tangier was a museum founded by the American publisher of Forbes magazine, Malcolm Forbes, in Tangier, Morocco.
Avenue Hassan II, Tanger, Morocco

Excitingly different. However, a cruise ship came in that morning and the Kasbah was swamped. We were there on a Monday and, naturally, the best restaurants were closed. A good intro to Morocco!

It's a good base to enable you to travel around other parts of Morocco, but there wasn't a huge amount of things here to see or do, 1 or 2 nights would be fine, 3 nights for me was too much. The taxis are cheap and easy to get around. The beach is a very nice area to walk along.

I was working in the new port 40km from Tangier, only saw city after dark, only downside is the odd person who suddenly wants to be your best friend. Just walk fast and ignore them. Lots of good restaurants n the front though still being developed, a very busy city.

Beautiful medina. Cafe El Hafa en Le Salon Bleu nice to drink tea with sea view. Les Fils du Detroit (life music but unfortunately no musicians when we were there)

A bit overwhelming in the medina. No signing. Too many people trying to scam you. But a full bodied experience of a very different culture.

We stayed in a hotel that was modestly priced and very comfortable. There was plenty of street food, which looked safe and tasty, but we chose to eat at the hotel or in local cafes. Small grocery shops were everywhere.

Observe the families and young people enjoying various activities on the beach and flocking at sunset to the port to eat seafood and watch the old fishing boats come in and out of the port.

We found the people in Tangier much friendlier than we expected, and enjoyed a number of interesting conversation, such as how to make the perfect mint tea,
