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.

Tangier needs a lot of tidying up. People need to stop just dropping what they have finished with!! It is disgusting. The Kasbah/Medina area needs a complete revamp. Poor signage, dirty buildings. It could be so attractive.

Tangier has a european feel and nice vibe to it. the Medina can be a bit overwhelming but the people don't bother you once you have said no. there were good sites to see and it is close to Asilah, which is a must see

Tangier is a relative large city with tons of history and tourist attractions. I'd recommend to stay 3 to 4 day mininum to have an idea of what it is about.

Tangier was fascinating. I was apprehensive before we went but I loved the hustle and bustle and mainly we were not hassled there.The history is good, the climate is fine and I will return to explore further

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,
