Algeciras is a major port city in southern Spain in the Bay of Gibraltar. It links Spain with Africa and is one of the largest ports in Europe. Over 3,5 Million passengers and more than 600,000 vehicles use the port every year and the maritime station is vast with an area of over 19.000 m2.
In the port area there are many Moroccan's in transit, particularly during July and August when migrant workers return home for their holidays from their work in France, Holland and Belgium. As a consequence, there is a strong Arab influence here with many of the signs in Arabic as well as Spanish while, in the backstreets, you can find several traditional tea shops which specialize in the traditional Moroccan mint tea.
With many daily sailings and very short journey times, Algeciras is the port to use if you want to travel between southern Europe and North Africa. Several different routes are available for you to use and AFerry allows you to compare them all and find the best priced deal.
Morocco is situated on North Africa's most westerly point, bordering Algeria and Mauritania. Morocco has a varied landscape, from sandy beaches to fertile plains to the impressive Atlas mountain range which runs through the centre of the country.
The markets of Morocco are worth a visit. It is expected that you haggle a wee bit for goods (the original asking price may be anything up to 50 times the actual expected price of any item). This is obviously fantastic news for any wannabe Apprentice candidates who are planning their holidays.
Also try a Hammam. Hammams are social steam baths that can be found throughout the country. They are considered by many to be an essential part of a trip to Morocco. Most Hammams are single sex.
