Tangier Beach (Plage Municipale)
Tangier is barely ten miles across the Strait of Gibraltar from Spain, making it the closest city in Africa to mainland Europe. To one side of Tangier Beach is on the Mediterranean Sea, and the other, the Atlantic Ocean. This is a place where both cultures and seas mix.
Tangier Beach itself is a vast expanse of sand, and you will find locals swimming, sunbathing, and playing soccer here. Beyond the beach is the promenade and corniche where you will find plenty of cafes and bars. The wide city beach is well maintained, and is a great spot for a walk or just relaxing on the fine white sand. Unfortunately the water can be polluted, so it isn’t great for swimming.
This is a vibrant city and you will find beach clubs, cafes, and nightlife. Many people come to Tangier to start their Moroccan adventures and it is easy to travel to many great places from this town.
