Located on the northern edge of the Rif Mountains in Morocco, the city of Al Hoceima lies on the Mediterranean Sea coast and is the capital of the Taza-Al-Hoceima-Taounate region. The city, located on top of cliffs, overlooks two coves, one is a beach (Plage Quernado) and the other is the commercial port. The grid of wide streets in the city make it an easy city to navigate round. Boulevard Mohammed V parallels the edge from the Spanish College at one end to Place du Rif at the other and is where many facilities and restaurants can be found.
The city's port is home to many fishing boats that fish locally and is an important link in the city's tourism infrastructure. The port is always busy with locals and visitors who are able to hire local boats for trips or for fishing. A particularly pleasing site in the crystal clear waters are the many types of dolphin that can be seen swimming around the bay. This is also a popular reason for many boat trips.
The Spanish town of Motril is located in the southern most part of the province of Grenada, between the Sierra Nevada mountain range and the Mediterranean Sea. The city of Malaga is around 100 km from Motril and Seville is around 3 hours away by car and Madrid 5 hours away. Motril's port is an important commercial port, fishing harbour and yacht club that has moorings for 190 boats. Motril's Holy Week has been declared an event of National Tourist Interest and consists of 12 brotherhood, 23 pasos and more than 6,000 followers and during the week there are daily processions. The event first took place in 1600 with the eldest brotherhood, the Vera Cruz. Following the Spanish Civil War, every brotherhood had to restore its patrimony.
The town of Motril's sub tropical climate and its calm, warm waters, make it a popular tourist destination especially for those who enjoy water sports. The sea bed around the town also offer exciting diving opportunities for scuba divers.
