Tarifa Tangier Ferry reviews

  • "Day trip from Tarifa to Tangier"

    Excellent trip overall with a family of 5. I had to delay trip and reschedule with FRS worked seamlessly. No problem with boarding either way. Customs procedures going to Tangier a bit of a pain because of the wait but managed.

Tarifa Guide

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.


Tangier Guide

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.
