How to Spend 1 Day in Tangier

How to Spend 1 Day in Tangier

A heady mix of North African and European influences, the port of Tangier is one of Morocco’s liveliest and most charismatic cities. From its hilltop casbah and warren-like medina to its European-built whitewashed Ville Nouvelle quarter, beaches, and out-of-town sights, here are our ideas for seeing as much as possible in a day.

Morning: View the Highlights

Finding your way around Tangier can be confusing, so save time with a hop-on hop-off tour. Ride the city loop around the Ville Nouvelle and medina districts, passing mosques, monuments, and open plazas en route. Learn about the landmarks via the audio commentary, and alight at stops that interest you such as Moulay Hafid Palace, the marina, and Grand Socco square, home to a medina gateway. 

Alternatively, join a private or group tour by foot or minivan to explore with a guide. These typically include forays into the medina and its Kasbah Museum, along with stops to view the Grand Mosque and mysterious seafront Phoenician tombs.

Afternoon: Coastal and Culinary Exploration

Some of Tangier’s must-sees lie outside the city along Morocco’s picturesque Atlantic–Mediterranean coast, so switch to the hop-on hop-off coastal route this afternoon. Gaze at the spot where the Atlantic Ocean and Mediterranean merge from the lighthouse at Cape Spartel, and explore the Caves of Hercules—wind-sculpted grottoes where the sea crashes through an Africa-shaped aperture.

If Tangier’s culinary scene tempts you, book a food walking tour. Dip into the medina’s cafés to sample specialities beloved by locals—tasting sweet pastries, cheeses, mint tea, and more. Alternatively, join a cooking class to prep dishes such as tagines and fresh bread before savoring them in true Moroccan style.

Evening: Indulge in a Shopping Spree

Tangier’s medina is a shopper’s paradise, so end your day with a private tour of its tightly packed lanes. Choose a late-afternoon start—the medina springs back to life come twilight—and scout the alleyways and markets with the help of your guide. Shop for everything from leatherware to tea glasses, and pick up on your guide’s bartering know-how to leave with bags of bargains. Or, take a camel ride along Tangier’s beaches as the sun sets over the sands and city’s palm-lined promenades.
