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

We stayed in medina in beautiful Le Balcon de Tanger, overlooking harbour and sea. Great walks in maze-like streets. Had a guide - definitely recommended, would have got lost otherwise.

The city is very beautiful. Modern and old at the same time. Local people are very nice helpful. I like walking in the Kasbah and do some shopping in the Souk. Beach walk is very nice too. You can see spain lights from Tangier in the night.

Enjoyed the Medina and the Kasbar, we were within walking distance of most things although did taxi once and it was no problem. Next time would look at a ferry trip to Spain as a day trip.

It felt safer for European women than in Casablanca or Essaoiura. The bikini does turn heads, which is normal in a country where women are bathing fully clothed, but nothing more than that.
