Playa Blanca: Tangier’s best beach
Playa Blanca is a pristine beach of soft golden sand about 9 miles from Tangier, along the Mediterranean coast. The isolated cove of Playa Blanca is perfect for relaxing, and boasts some of the best snorkeling in all of morocco. The beach is sheltered by rock cliffs on either side, and the waves are generally quite moderate.
You can reach the beach most easily by car (see map), but you could be dropped off here by a Grand Taxi traveling the route to Ksar Sghir.
There are several beach houses in playa blanca that are available for rent online, but keep in mind that there is only one restaurant on the beach so pack a lunch. The snorkeling here is amazing, light seaweed and tons of different fish to see darting among the rocks, and if you swim out to the end of the rock outcrop on the right you can see a sunken peddle boat.
