Tangiers may not be the “real Morocco,” but it is definitely worth a day visit if that is all the time you have.
Is Tangier worth visiting ? If you’re nearby than certainly it’s well worth a visit as it has a distinctly unique feel you won’t find elsewhere in Morocco . However, if you won’t be near the city it may not really be worth the time to reach it .
However, to get there from Malaga , you will have to either fly directly or take a bus to Tarifa, where you can get on a ferry that will dock in Tangier in about an hour. You could also drive yourself to Tarifa and take your car across on the ferry.
Tangier is a safe place for solo women travelers. Common sense is advised and personal safety precautions you would usually take anywhere apply in Tangiers too. Left luggage: Many visitors are only in Tangier for a day before taking a night train or ferry and face the problem of leaving luggage somewhere.

Moroccans are very loving – in private. It’s very uncommon and frowned on to show a lot of affection in public. Holding hands in Morocco is fine. The more rural you are the more frowned on public displays of affection are.
A woman traveling to Morocco should wear long skirts and dresses, jeans or pants that cover the knees, draping tunics, polo shirts, and camisoles that can be worn under sweaters and cardigans. It’s not necessary for non-Muslim women to wear a hijab , or a veil that conceals a woman’s hair.
The starting price for a standard ferry ticket from Tarifa to Tangier City Port is €38. If you want to book a cabin or travel with your vehicle, the fare will be higher.

5 Answers. The closest point is Tarifa or Algeciras. From Tarifa you can see Africa ( Morocco ), but be aware it is quite a distance and you weill not see too much. This is a more convenient and less expensive option than travelling down to Gibraltar, Tarifa or Algeciras if you are staying in the Málaga area.
