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

Tangier is a way-station between Spain and Morocco. Everybody is always going somewhere else. I might have enjoyed it more if the hotel we stayed in was good but it was really bad. We left ASAP. Maybe our next trip we will get to see some of the Tangier.

There are only a few things to see in Tanger, so limit your time. I hated the center, the dirty streets and crazy traffic. Even the people are not guest friendly. My advice book in the hotels outside Tanger and enjoy the beach, go a tour of the city, sleep the rest on the beach.

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.

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.

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.

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,

Yes at La Fabrique. Great ingredients with amazing chefs

Try smaller restaurants on the side streets

Good sole fish and seafood Spanish dishes

Visit the Socco, medina, old town.
