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

I was surprised at how beautiful and organized the city is. Its so easy to get to from Spain and i am glad we decided to do it. Add it to your "bucket list" for sure. See all the sights, and there are many if you are into history and backgrounds

Tangier is a fascinating place on the doorstep to Europe but so completely different. The medina is cute and so are the markets. A good place for one or two days to start a Morocco trip

Amazing city in Morocco, perfect blend of cultures! Lots of history, amazing shopping, and great food! Check out Asliah for great beaches, right outside of the city, and also go see the Cave of Hercules while there!

I just stoped by. Go to the hotel yourself. Book the hotel online - cheaper! Get to know the prices first from many providers before buying anything.

Beautiful city with a lovely Kasba and very nice corniche in the modern city. Plenty of cafes that do fantastic ice cream. I would recommend 2 nights max to see the whole city.

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,

Try smaller restaurants on the side streets

Good sole fish and seafood Spanish dishes

Visit the Socco, medina, old town.
