Tangier Tourist Traps: 24 reviews and 24 photos

The town beach has a great setting in Tangier. It stretches over a kilometer along curve with the white houses of Tangier on a high cliff before it ends in the barren mountains of which there is nothing further north than sea and the European continent.

The sad fact about the beach is that it is dirty and looks like never cleaned. The water in the Atlantic Ocean is not better. The western end of the beach is the most crowded and therefore also the dirtiest.

Unique Suggestions: Just in case... do not try to clean the beach, it's Sisyphean labour. Some locals (minority, I do believe) use to throw trash on a beach again and again.

Fun Alternatives: There are several Atlantic beaches west of Tangier, which - referring to tourists opinions I was talking to - offer a good alternative to the town beach. The only real, clean and nice beach with all facilities I found in Agadir... over 1,000 km south of Tangier.

Review Helpfulness: 3.5 out of 5 stars
