A beautiful collision of the laid-back elegance of Europe and the unexpected adventures that can only be found in the beloved land of Africa, there’s an unexplainable magic of Tangier.
There couldn’t have been a better place to kick off our travels in Morocco. From wandering the whitewashed medina alleyways and pristine beaches to popping into neighborhood art galleries, we felt right at home here.
We only had a mere 48 hours in this city – but that's all it took to fall in love. Today, we're sharing a few snaps from our whirlwind romance with this quaint town. Oh, and we've also got a few tips for when planning your visit.
A few of our favorite local haunts…
WHERE TO STAY: La Tangerina Guest Home
La Tangerina is nestled on the highest hill of the Medina of Tangier. If you have an appreciation of architecture and design from the European colonial period, this small boutique hotel has your name written all over it. With only ten rooms, all guests are treated like family and their staff goes above and beyond to meet everyone’s needs.
One of the highlights of our stay here was taking in the sweeping 360-degree view from their rooftop terrace during the daily breakfast and afternoon tea hours.
WHERE TO EAT: El Morocco Club
Don’t miss out on this gem of a dining experience. During the day, the unassuming patio tucked around the corner from La Tangerina serves the most refreshing lunch. It is the perfect place to perch up with a book, sit back and watch all the daily happenings of the old medina.
As the dinner hour approaches, this little neighborhood joints turns into a foodies’ heaven – serving up a fusion of modern Mediterranean and traditional Moroccan cuisine.
