I can imagine, after reading the history of the cave online, if you had a good tour guide to really explain the history of the cave that it would have a must do experience. If you tackle the cave on your own or have just an okay guide, I think you will find the experience to be just average.

Newly renovated cave at the Atlantic Ocean. An easy walk on cobble stone with interesting views of the water splashing through the cave holes.

The site has been well-preserved, and signs in several languages provide background on the mythology associated with this unusual formation. Visitors can descend into the grotto to view the oncoming waves. Indeed, the shape reminds one of a mirror image of the map of Africa, with Madagascar on the side! If you are in Tangier, you should definitely see this.

We stayed at the Hotel Villa de France for several nights and one day took a private tour of Tangier, the Cave of Hercules and Assilah. The caves were amazing! Apparently they were closed for some time as the King asked for them to be renovated. It is said that after Hercules dug the Straights of Gibraltar that he took... More

We visited the cave as part of a guided tour we did and was pleasantly surprised at how nice it was, as many of the reviews we read said it wasn't worth the trip. Lucky for us, it had just opened a few months prior after having been renovated by request of the King. Our guide was able to give... More

totally renovated and recently opened Hercules cave is one of the well known monuments in Tangier and a must visit, there are also some restaurants and coffee shops where you can enjoy a meal/drink while watching the ocean.
