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

Very Good
A chill, relaxed place to spend a couple days. Not so many tourists around, the people are really friendly, the beach is great for walks at night, plenty of good food. We stayed in the new city but the old Medina is close by too. We both enjoyed the stay and the Amohades Hotel.

Beautiful old city. But limited attractions and you can do it within 1 day if you squeeze your schedule or 2 days maximum. Other than that the city is quiet especially at night except for the weekend where drivers coming from the club with their cars and loud music shaking the quiet peaceful street.

Vibrant city. Famous for its former international citizens, mostly writers. I love the retro french charm of the city and the feeling that is so unique to North Africa, especially in Morocco and Algeria. A true melting pot.

Tangier's medina is really something to see. Not very touristic so authentic. Just need to know that some people try to guide you and quite insist a little sometime. Don't be afraid, say no, ecerything is fine. Secure city.

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.
