The cave of Hercules is being restored to give it the appearance that complements the reception of cosmopolitan visitors. This natural place is full of imagination that fully overlooks the Atlantic Ocean. interesting./.

It seems that the place is been in the way of a huge construction, so nobody can enter the cave. It's a shame because it looks to be amazing. Felt really disappointed.

greetings! I was on a organized tour, visiting Cape Spartel and other places. Unfortunately the Hercules cave is/was closed for renovation, we/I could not enter. This was January 13, 2015. According to our guide it would take quite some time to re-open?! Now I see reviews of a later date, so can only advise to check before hand!

Through this cave i can see the map of Africa, it's an amazing cave worth a visit and wonder for how great Hercule's were during his time, this is a historical place shows the power of people were in the past and how they use this caves as their homes.

the Caves are carved naturally by the ocean, with heavy weather, the seas rushing into the cave, but do not get wet, as we step back .By great weather, it makes you want to swim but for me, the best is the sunset is magnificent .Seul small flat, souvenir sellers who occupy the sites, email they do "not stick.

It was so beautiful to look out into the ocean through the opening in the cave. I was in awe of God's beautiful creation. I was at peace taking in the view. It was also a good balance because it was a fun adventure climbing around in the cave!

When I looked out at the ocean through the cave opening, I was in awe of God's beautiful creation. I was at peace standing there just watching it. It was so soothing and yet at the same time it was adventurous climbing around in the cave.

If you visit Tangier, this is the right place you can´t miss. It´ s not difficult to find the place, and if you love beach, beautiful views and a bit of history and fine atmosphere, you should be here.
