Morocco Vacation with Kids Advice for Tangier

Moroccan Beach sunset DSCF5438 webAs Morocco continues to expand its resources and offerings for tourists, one

challenge remains: the kids. Getting to Morocco as a family can be as easy

as a hope, skip and a jump from Europe, especially with low-cost airlines. But

once you’re here, it can be hard to figure out what to do when the troops get

tired of looking at ancient buildings and playing quietly while you drink a glass of

Morocco’s famous mint tea.

While there’s no Disney World in the works here, in recent years the country has

opened up kid-friendly destinations that are safe, fun and a life-saver during mid-
vacation burnout.

Mnar Park (Lighthouse Park) is located just 8 km outside Tangier, in the north.

The park features a sizeable amusement park with rides and games for just a

few dirhams each. There’s also a small but clean playground which is free. The

restaurant at the park has a varied menu with reasonable prices and a 180°

view of the Bay of Tangier. The park also has residential facilities for families or

groups.

The highlight, however, is the water park! With three large swimming pools

and six slides, this is a great place to let the kids to run and play. And at 50dh

(~$6) for children under 12, the price is right. The water park has bathroom and

shower facilities, along with free umbrellas and a snack bar. Like many things in

Morocco, the slides close from 12n-2pm, but the pools and restaurant stay open.

To get to Mnar Park, take the road to Ksar Sghir out to Cap Malabata. The drive

itself offers breathtaking views of the Bay and a peak at the tourism development

going on in Tangier. Parking is free. While there is no public transportation

to the park, grand taxis (large white Mercedes Benz) will take you there for a

reasonable fee. Website: mnarparktanger.com
