Ferry itself was good, fast and efficient. All aircraft style seats and on some seats (only a few) there are power points for whatever. There are a number of coffee bars on the boat, one nearest us seemed unstaffed until if you knew the staff sat on the floor behind the ice cream fridge you could call them!!! We went during Ramadan and this caused some headaches with the timetables, normally ferries every 2 hours. We were told both 13:00 & 14:00 for the time of departure, it was actually 12:00 and the 14:00 boat was cancelled. This took 5 different conversations with staff in different places, the 13:00/14:00 conflict was on differently printed literature given to us 30mins apart and the actual time of 12:00 (and 14:00 cancellation) only after a long conversation in the InterShipping office in Tanger Ville when I went to ask specifically "Tomorrow give me the times of the boats actually leaving" The boats always leave what we see as late (15-20mins) but arrive on time as it only takes 45mins. If you park in the Tarifa car park at the terminal immediately in front of the terminal, it says 17€ per day but this can be discounted if you keep the ticket and when you come back from Tanger get it franked at a machine on the wall as you first come into the terminal off the boat. Again no word of this on any literature or from the staff. Small notice on the wall by the machine (RHS) as you enter building, we got 5€ a day off!

The Spanish town of Tarifa is located in the Province of Cadiz, in the Andalusia region of southern Spain. The town is on the Costa de la Luz, the Coast of Light, and lies across the Strait of Gibralta from Morocco. The town is popular with surfers, windsurfers and kit boarders because of the strong Atlantic winds that the town often experiences. The town has influences of Morocco with fusion food on offer set against the backdrop of the walled old town and narrow whitewashed streets, which could easily pass for Chefchaouen or Essaouira. There is clearly more to Tarifa than it just being a last stop in Spain before travelling to Morocco. Tarifa was a Roman settlement and takes its name from Tarif ibn Malik, who led a Muslim raid in AD 710, the year before the main Moorish invasion of the peninsular.
There are regular ferry services between Tarifa and Tangier and bus services between Tarifa and Algeciras, about 20 km to the northeast, and Seville about 200 km to the north.
Located in northern Morocco, on the north coast of Africa, the city of Tangier is located at the western entrance of the Strait of Gibralta, where the Mediterranean Sea meets the Atlantic Ocean. The Kasbah stands proudly over the old town, the medina, and is an ancient fortification that was in its time responsible for the defence of the city. In modern Tangier many of the historic buildings and palaces of the Kasbah have been purchased by Europeans and converted into hotels, restaurants, museums and private residences. Located just off Place du Mechouar is the Kasbah Museum and contains many relics that date back to the Stone Age right through to the beginning of the 20th century, all of which display the city's rich history, and there is evidence of many different civilisations having ruled the region. Not to be missed is a beautiful mosaic taken from the Roman city of Volubilis and a nice stroll through the Sultan’s Gardens.
