I think that from November on the ferry crossing from Tarifa will go to Tanger Med port. It is too early to get booking for November in my opinion. Look in another month or so. Just my opinion. I did a piece about the crossing on my Algeciras page. I have never gone by car but I do know that there is a myriad of opportunities at the port itself. But don't fall for being stopped by a man who asks "Have you got a ticket?" and when you look perplexed he takes you to his favourite ticket office. There is free parking for up to one hour in front of the ferry terminal building and plenty of ticket offices as well as travel agencies to help you.

The best way to get a ferry from spain to Tangier is from Tarifa but not to med-port because then you will be about 40 km far from the town of Tangier but if you take the ferry to madina-port then you will be in the center of the town.
There's a ferry office at the port where you can buy your tickets nearly ever 60 mn.For any other informations please don't hasitate contacting me.

Mohammed- Will the Tarifa to Tanger City (you call Medina) cease in October and then the Tarifa ferries will go to TANGER-MED port ? With a car the new TANGER-MED port does sound great because it is purpose built, and the journey time from Algeciras to Morocco using TANGER-MED will be cut substantially. And the new roads in morocco will help the onward journey.
Of course after October all the ferries will avoid Tangier city port and it will become a leaisure port for yachts as well as a cruise ship prt.

Mohammed - is this correct ? I have put some information on my Algeciras page :

Mohammed- can you verify that information >?

This is interesting about the ferries moving to the -med port. I hope at least one will keep going to the "old" port as that is much easier if you don't bring your car.

Hi,the port-ville will keep the lines between Tarifa and Tanger-city but through fast-ferries only even after october.cruises will do this port also.
For any one coming to see Tangier the best way is Tangier-city.
If any news i will let you know.regards

Travel Tips for Tangier

Morroccan Cuisine

by venteeocho

Morocco, the name itself evokes exotic images. Moroccan cuisine has strong routes in tradition and is rated as THE best in the world. The Moroccans are very proud of their food. The sharing of meals is an integral part of the culinary experience and the foundation of the Moroccan way of life There is a strong sense of family and tribe.

Morocco is an agricultural paradise. The heart of Moroccan cuisine lies in the spices expelling tantalizing fragrance, color and warmth. Set recipes are very rare, each dish will have the signature of the creator, who is always a woman.

MINT TEA

The country’s national drink, tea is drunk every hour of the day. Although it is said to be the favoured drink of the Prophet, the truth behind the history of tea is the English who offloaded it in Tangier during the Crimean War. Mint is grown all over Morocco but flourishes in the mountains. The only mint that can be used is ‘mentha viridis’. The best quality, dark with firm stalks, comes from Meknes or the Zerhoun. Freshly brewed na’na’ MINT TEA has become a fine art and a national symbol.

COUSCOUS

As the national dish, couscous has a strong religious and emotional significance. Made from durum-wheat semolina native to the region mixed with smaller quantities of either drum-wheat flour or a soft-wheat flour, it is usually served topped with a stew. Moroccans believe couscous brings God’s blessing upon those who consume it. Couscous needs to be prepared with patience, rhythm, time and the finesse of the woman preparing it.

BREAD

Bread or khubz’, the most basic and essential food is sacred in Morocco. The Prophet ordered that that bread be treated with the utmost respect, so any bread found thrown away in the street must be moved out of the way of foot traffic with a short prayer. Loaves are baked early morning in terracotta gas’a in a communal oven.

PRESERVES

One of the cornerstones of Moroccan cuisine. Jewish Moroccans developed the art of preserving using salt. Olives from around Fes and Meknes are some of the best in the Mediterranean. Lemons are preserved in the spring when they are their ripest and sweetest. Some regions add cinnamon sticks, cloves and coriander for an alternative taste.

BAGH'IR

For a delicious Morocco breakfast, try this yeasty semolina pancake with a distinctive honeycomb appearance. Serve with ‘khli’’ preserved meat.

B’STILA

This pastry is widely regarded as the crowning dish of Moroccan cuisine. This pastry is served to newlyweds the morning after their wedding night to symbolise their family’s wish that life together should be as sweet as this creation.

The Moroccans eat three meals a day, the main meal being around mid-day.

My favourite thing about Tangier I think has to be its exotic and wild history. If I went to Tangier with someone who had never been there, I would take them through the winding alleys and streets of the locals area of the Medina and Kasbah. My best memory of Tangier has to be OF COURSE meeting Mutapha, at St Andrews Church, and having another "Palin Moment"...........................

3rd visit to Tangier

by Carmela71

My third visit to Tangier was at Christmas 2005/New Year Eve 2006. A group of friend we crossed by ferry to spend the long weekend and celebrate NYE at Tangier, maybe not a party place, but we had a great experience. We celebrated also the birthday of Olga´s best friend of Tangier and had dinner at Hammadi. A perfect weekend.

Gentlemen, keep your hands in your pockets!

by Geoff_Wright

Just look at the ladies' faces, as they browse the shop windows. Although there wasn't any time to enter the ordinary shops (more's the pity), They'll be plenty of time to buy your good lady something in the tour shops later! Just watch what you buy, and the quality. I wasn't convinced everything was 'Moroccan'. Even so, we bought a couple of colourful, decorative plates, and paid more than they were really worth. But I knew this beforehand!

Fresh bread...

by bpwillet

As you walk around the kasbah area, you are treading on a part of the city which has existed in this state for centuries. There are back alleys and little corner areas that all make up the maze of buildings and cobbled streets. Getting lost is part of the adventure. One thing you will come up on is residents going about their daily way, fetching water from the communal well, or getting bread from the local baker. This gentleman may have been doing this for years. THe bakery where he works has existed long before his time. Follow your nose...it will be worth it. He will ask for a bit of money for the bread but it is so worth the experience.
