Useful city facts

  • Tangier has a Mediterranean climate with very hot summers and mild, short winters. The average high temperature is 28.6 °C (83.5 °F) in August, the hottest month, and 16.2 °C (61.2 °F) in January, the coolest. The precipitation is almost nonexistent in July and August, but it’s very rainy from November to February.
  • Divided from Europe only by the nearby Strait of Gibraltar, Tangier has historically been known as “the Door to Africa”. Spain is only 32 km (20 mi) away. During the warmer months of the year, there is a frequent ferry service connecting Tangier with the Spanish port of Tarifa. There’s also a ferry from Algeciras in Spain to Tangier Port that’s about a 40 km (25 mi) east of the city proper.

Top destinations and activities

  1. Kasbah. Tangier Kasbah or fortress is one of the most impressive buildings in the city. On a clear day, from its Northern terrace you can see Europe on the other side of the Strait of Gibraltar. The adjoining Kasbah Museum, located in a former Sultan’s palace, hosts artefacts and treasures of prehistoric Phoenicians, Arab dynasties, Spanish rulers, and other cultures that once inhabited Tangier.
  2. The tomb of Ibn Battouta. Born in Tangier in the 13th Century, Ibn Battouta was one of the great travelers of the Medieval world. He explored North and East Africa all the way to present day Tanzania, the Middle East, and even ventured as far Far East, a place beyond the margins of the known world of the day. 
  3. The Cinema Rif. Although films, both Hollywood movies and local productions, are only screened in French and Arabic here, you should still consider visiting Cinema Rif. Located in an old colonial building in central Tangier, this movie theater is one of the hippest places in Morocco and perhaps one of the most beautiful cinemas in all of Africa.

Traffic and parking tips

  • Unless specifically indicated otherwise, the speed limits are 120 km/h on motorways (autoroutes), 100 km/h on roads outside urban cities that are not motorways, and 60 km/h within populated areas.
  • Even inside some big cities, and in the most smaller towns and villages, there are no special lanes for cyclists or sometimes even pavements for pedestrians. In those cases, you’ll be sharing a road with them, so be extra careful.
  • Road signs are written in both Arabic and French. If you don’t know either of these languages, it’s good to learn at least the main terms in one of them before renting a car.
  • The legal alcohol limit is 0.00% for both experienced and novice drivers. Drunk driving can lead to large fines and even jail time or deportation.
  • The insurance and car documentation needs to be in the car whenever you’re driving.
  • If you’re the driver, you need to have your passport or ID card with you at all times.
  • The nation-wide emergency police number is 19 and the nation-wide ambulance and fire safety department number is 15.

Toll roads

A toll needs to be paid for using most of Morocco’s motorways or autoroutes. All of the toll roads in Morocco are administered by the state-owned company Autoroutes du Maroc (ADM). 

Morocco uses a “closed system” for its toll roads, meaning that there is a toll booth both at the entrance and the exit of the toll road. You pay either by cash or by credit card (although some toll points might only accept cash so it’s good to have some available at all times). Make sure to keep any proof that you have paid for the toll road as police checks are frequent and fines can be hefty. The prices for using the toll roads are generally quite low.

Most of the toll roads connect the largest cities of the country. Oftentimes you can opt to use regional roads instead - while traveling along those will be much slower, the views are usually much more scenic.

Ideas for a day-trip

  • Caves of Hercules. Located right outside Tangier, the Caves of Hercules are a place where, according to the legend, the Greek hero Hercules rested after finishing his 12 labours. Inhabited since 6000 BC, the cave was long thought to be bottomless and is still an impressive natural and archaeological landmark. You can combine your visit with also seeing the nearby Cape Spartel Lighthouse.
  • Tetouan. Less than an hour’s drive from Tangier lies Tetouan, a beautiful old city that boasts arguably the most picturesque medina in Morocco (and that is some claim in this country). Those craving a more active relaxation will enjoy the diving opportunities in the nearby beaches.
  • Jebel Musa. Back in ancient times, this rocky mountain was known as one of the two Pillars of Hercules. Still offering an impressive view of two continents at once, Jebel Musa also provides great opportunities for further exploration of the Rif Mountains.

Most popular rental types and cars

The most popular rental car type in Morocco is an Economy, followed by Mini and Intermediate. Most national highways are in great shape, but if you plan to drive in mountains or desert, getting a 4x4 vehicle can be a good idea. The most popular rental car in Morocco is the Hyundai i10, although travelers also love the Dacia Logan and the Renault Clio.

Further destinations

  • Fez. One of the oldest cities in Morocco and one of the most famous ones in the Arab World, Fez is still as impressive as the legends that have been told about it for centuries. Its religious importance is exemplified by many beautiful mosques and madrasas while in the tanneries and other workshops of its souks or markets you’ll find men greatly skilled in ancient crafts.
  • Meknes. About four hour’s drive from Tangier, Morocco’s previous capital has maybe lost some of its old grandeur, but none of its charm. Historic sites and impressive buildings abound inside the city, but if you’re still craving for more, visit the ruins of nearby Volubilis, a city once inhabited by Romans, and even before by Carthaginians.
  • Chefchaouen. Located high and deep inside the mountains, Chefchaouen is perhaps one of the unique cities in Morocco. Just a bit more than two hours drive from Tangier, it is best known for its blue-and-white architecture and for the Ras el Maa spring.
