Morocco: four days in Tanger!

Tanger plage

6 days, of which 2 are spend mostly on traveling, 4 days of time to relax in Tanger.

Day 2: we walked to the famous Café the Paris for breakfast. After some time watching people go by, we headed into the medina. We wanted to find the tomb of Ibn Battuta. And we did. And by doing so I explored a new part of the medina I haven’t been before. After we walked down to the little museum within hotel Continental. Go back in time and wander in the atmosphere of 1001 Arabian nights. From the hotel we walked along the new path along the renovated fortress wall overseeing the port.

Day 3: We got up early, took a nice walk along the beach and enjoyed a nice Moroccan and Andalusian breakfast. After we took a taxi up to café Haffa for a nice talk and tea. After we walked via the Phoenicians graves and the Kasbah down to the medina. When we got down to the beach we watched fishermen towing big fishnets from the sea on the beach. We watched them for a while after which we walked on the beach to the other side of the bay to the casino.

Day 4: After breakfast we took a taxi up to Cap Spartel. It is a beautiful sunny day, around 18 degrees, a nice wind from the land and the beaches are empty. We walked along the beaches to the Grote d’Hercule. A beautiful walk, climbing the rocks from the one closed off beach to the other. After some delicious salad and fresh caught and roasted sardines we headed home.

Day 6: aaahh, it’s already my last day. We just had time to have breakfast together before I have to catch the airplane to Amsterdam.

Another great week in my beautiful Morocco, hope to be back soon!
