Going to the Beach
OK, here is the TangierHotels list of Recommended beaches in Tangier.
This is the best beach in Tangier, and well worth the trip out to cap Spartel. The water here is clean with reasonable waves, great sand, and it’s much less crowded than other beaches. When the waves are good it’s possible to surf and body-board here. The coast here faces west so it’s a perfect place to catch the sunset! You can catch a taxi there from behind the Giant Mosque of Mohammed 5th.
This is the worst beach in tangier. The most compelling reason is that sewage from the entire city pours out into the bay less than a mile away. That and the loads of trash that wash up on shore. This beach is however an excellent place to play soccer (football) or loaf around if you can stand being hassled by weird old dudes and guys selling Berber jewelry.
Playa blanca is a little ways out of town on the Mediterranean, and although it’s difficult to find, the beach is beautiful and clean.
Beach of Asilah
Just short walk from the town of Asila and popular with foreigners, the city beach of Asila is also a great choice. You can get to asila by Grand Taxi in about 45 minutes
Plage Sidi Kacem
Stretching for miles from the Cave of Hercules all the way to the walls of Asila, this beautiful narutal beach is almost completely empty even in the busiest parts of the summer. Be careful of some places along this shore that have an undertow.
