The distance between the Rock of Gibraltar and Morocco is only 7.7 nautical miles (14.24 kilometers, 8.9 miles ) at its narrowest point.
First put forward in 1869, a 38km-long tunnel crossing would link Spain and Morocco through the Strait of Gibraltar from Tarifa to Tangier and could cost up to €8bn (£6.9bn).
Is there any direct ferry from Morocco to Gibraltar ? There is a ferry between Tanger Med (about 40 km east of Tangiers city) and Gibraltar , but you will have to do some research into the best place to buy tickets.
In truth, Morocco is a safe place to visit. There’s only really small crime there ( scams and pickpockets) and you’re unlikely to be assaulted or seriously hurt as a tourist in the country. Morocco is super safe for tourists now.
The quickest way to get from Gibraltar to Morocco is to car ferry and drive which costs $65 – $310 and takes 5h 5m. 6 дней назад
Tangier is worth visiting for its varied history. Tangier has a lot of international influence as a result of colonisation by the Spanish, French, British and others. As Tangier was once considered an international zone, it is home to a unique cocktail of culture and architecture.
1. Re: from Tangier coast can I see Europe across Gibraltar strait? You can , on a clear day, see Spain beautifully across the straits. Save the beaches for the Spanish side.
You swim from Tarifa (not Gibraltar) to Morocco . It’s 10 miles (or 16km) across. They provided us with both a pilot boat and a smaller motorised support boat. In general, Channel Swimming rules or similar apply – i.e. just a swim hat and normal trunks, no touching the boat etc.
At its narrowest point, the Strait of Gibraltar separates Spain from Morocco by just 14.5 kilometers / 9 miles . Here, the African and European continents are so close that it’s actually possible to swim from one to the other.
British Airways has served Gibraltar for many years and its daily services from London Heathrow take around three hours to reach The Rock. Monarch has regular flights from Luton, Manchester and Birmingham, and easyJet flies in daily from London Gatwick.
