Ferry to Morocco from Benalmadena, Spain and one night stay?

Hi there,

We are going to Benalmadena, Spain in June/July and have a few questions about the possibility of getting a ferry to Morocco and staying for a night or two there, any advice would be greatly appreciated!

Okay so here's our questions:

1. First things first, what area should we stay in? We would like to get a taste of the real Morocco without travelling for hours from the port, which leads us to our next question.

2. Do we get the ferry to Tangier???

3. Does anybody have any hotel reccomendations?? We'd want a hotel that is clean, safe, central and has friendly staff.

4. Any reccomendations as to must see/do things in Morocco??

Thanks so much for your help, any small tip is appreciated!!!

Two choices. You could take the Portillo bus service from Benalmadena to Algeciras, see portillo.avanzabus.com/web/default.aspx… At Algeciras buy tickets from the FRS office (www.frs.es) for Tarifa to Tanger Ville and hop on their courtesy coach from Algeciras to Tarifa.

Or... take the overnight ferry from Malaga to Melilla, see http://www.aferry.to

Melilla is a Spanish city in Africa (as is Ceuta) but you can cross the frontier if you wish and visit Nador.

Have a look on the Tanger forum tripadvisor.co.uk/ShowForum-g293737-i9554-Ta… for previous threads about accommodation. Hotel Continental gets mixed reviews but has the history... Also on the Tanger forum is the link to hotel reviews.
