Tangier has the advantage of being in a strategic position, which makes it a destination with a wide variety of beaches, many of which have been proudly flying a blue flag since 2014. It provides really relaxing holidays for lovers of the sun, sea and water sports.
Its location on the Strait of Gibraltar, between the Atlantic Ocean and the Mediterranean Sea, means that there is a great diversity of beaches.
The high-quality Atlantic beaches are ideal for nautical sports like surfing and kitesurfing. Miles of wide beaches between pine forests. The smaller and quieter beaches are beside the calm Mediterranean Sea, with their proximity to small villages like Ksar Sghir with its historic castle – a visit to which is to be recommended.
Lastly, the more urban visitor can enjoy the Bay of Tangier, a beach of fine sand divided into areas including Malabata and Ghandouri . . . with its seafront promenade stretching nearly all its length.

Enjoy a unhurried, lazy day – take advantage of the restaurants and stalls to have some fish and, most certainly, admire the setting of the sun from the Atlantic beaches.
