I was excited to know I could get a ferry from Tarifa or Barcelona to Tangiers, but having researched it, it appears that I will have to negotiate an expensive 28 mile journey to the town from the new port at Tanger Med. Perhaps I should abadon the idea?
A friend and I will be staying at a resort for a week this month and want to make a day trip to Tangier. Any suggestions, tips or recommendations highly appreciated. We are two avid travelers, women in our 60s and we love seeing the world.
I married my moroccan boyfriend in Morocco in 2004. It didnt work for me, so after a year i wanted a divorce. He didnt want a Divorce and we have not seen each other since.
We had little contact and now time has passed, life happens, new relationship and i now have a daughter. I really do miss travelling to Morocco and want to take a daytrip by ferry from spain for some shopping and see Morocco for just a day.
Im worried if it is safe for me to go there, or will the Police take me as i have a daughter outside of marriage? Anyone knows or been in the same Situation?

Does Tangier have a Spanish flavour.a french taste. A moroccan palet or an amalgamation of the three.Does one have ascendancy culturally. Why is Tangier on the lower echelon of Moroccan Tourism
I am partial to a snack hamburger n fries and wondered of there was a McDonald's or a Berber King in Tangier. I visit them in marrakesh and agadir
It seems that a flight from london to malaga and a ferry from port Tarifa to Tangier seems the easiest itinerary. I do find travel hard work and this trajectory seems reasonable. I cannot swim so I hope the ferry has lifeboats.i am mindful of that Titanic film.
Is there a direct uk flight to Tangier.Is hotel Tarik well placed for nightlife
We experienced obtrusive vendors in the medina and in the area just outside the medina. A man contacted us on the street and said he worked at a 5 star hotel and said he was off for half an hour. He asked if we knew there was a market in the city today (Sunday). He led us through a market; into a perfume shop, where they took overcharges and finally he took us to a carpet deal. The trip with him took 3 hours. Is there anyone here who has advice for people visiting Tangier in relation to the above-mentioned vendors?
Do they have sandwiches and the like on Tangier Ville Railway Station?
Do they have a ticket machine with text in English at Tangier Railway Station (Tanger Ville)?
Hi! this summer i'll be with a friend on a trip in Spain and Morocco. We booked a ferry from Algeciras to Tangier Med and I have some questions:
-How long does it take from Algeciras to Tangier Med (Balearia) and what about the change of hour? (Morocco has one or 2 hour of difference with Spain?)
-How long does it take to go from Tangier Med Port to Tanger Railway station and what is the best way to do it? We have to catch a train to go to Fez.
Thanks a lot

I'm travelling through Spain with a suitcase (average size, approx 14 kilograms). Was hoping to catch a ferry to tangier and then trek down through fez, Marrakech, and then back to tangier; however didn't want to take my suitcase (I have a small sized shoulder bag I can use for a weeks worth of travelling in morocco). I was wondering, are there any places in Spain, prior to the ferry that have left luggage services, maintaining the luggage for 6-7 days? I have read that the Algeciras train station does not have left luggage services.
Thanks in advance
Dear fellow travellers,
My friend and I have made some adjustments in our itinerary so instead of going southbound from Spain to Morocco, we will be arriving first in Casablanca and moving up north to Spain. We plan on taking an overnight train from Marrakech to Tangier arriving in the morning around 7AM and then catch a ferry from Tangier med to Algeciras at 10AM to catch on a last train (3:30PM) from Algeciras to Granada. This presumably will work assuming a punctual train, transit bus from Tangier train station to Tangier Med and ferry time as per schedule. As this is my first trip, I am not sure how accurate are the time schedules in reality. Is this a doable plan or should we schedule to leave early afternoon from Marrakesh and stay overnight at Tangier to catch morning ferry?
Separately, would it be safe for ladies to ride on the overnight train and use taxi (if required) should we need to take a taxi to Tangier Med from Tangier train station given the tight schedule? I have read mixed messages in regards to women travelling in Morocco so best to anticipate ahead for safety precautions.
Grateful for any info or suggestions that will help us in finalizing this leg of our trip to Morocco and Spain.
