We drove past the gate with our tour group but it was closed for repair. I'd check before you go--don't have any idea what it would be like if it was open nor any idea how long it will be closed

We were scheduled to see Hercules Cave but couldn't because it was closed for Ramaden. So, if this is on your "must do" list, you will need to check the schedule regarding openings/closings. I checked "very good" above in anticipation but couldn't really rate it.

This is one of the best places you can see in Tangier. Unfortunately, right now the site is closed for renovation. I think it will remain closed for the next 6 months. It is better to skip it if you are visiting Tangier this summer.

Its probably an amazing sight that is worth the trip there, but it's currently closed. I was disappointed, since i was really looking forward to come here.

What is different in this cave is the challenge to reveal if the engravings of the sea made by the stine a profil face of the man or the African map??

Currently Hercules Cave is closed. I was disappointed as I was looking forward to seeing it. Looks like it is undergoing renovations and will be reopened in a year.

We got taken there on a tour in a taxi (which was greatly overpriced as well) - arranged by the hotel. The cave was closed so we could only see it from outside - it was not anything spectacular, but a nice view.

Get off the coach in car park & there are numerous stalls & sellers selling souvenirs.Descend down some well worn steps passing more sellers & you enter the cave which has groups of people from other coaches & their guides at various places. Looking out an opening in the cave walls you... More

Located 14 km west of Tangier in Cap Spartel, the north-western extremity of Africa's Atlantic coast. Cap Spartel is heavily wooded, but below it the Robinson Plage stretches off to the south. The caves are located about 100 meters from the Robinson Plage Holiday Village and surrounded by some expensive cafes. The caves has been used as a dwelling since... More
