The cargo port of Tangier-Med is located around 40 km to the east of the city of Tangier in Morocco. The port opened in 2007 and is one of the largest ports in the Mediterranean and in Africa. The second phase of the port's development began in 2009 in order to meet the increasing demand for the port's services. The port also deals with passenger traffic which is accommodated in the new passenger terminal, which replaced the city of Tangier port as the destination for ferries arriving from Europe. Facilities in the new terminal include a bureau de change, a small shop, a cafe and ATM's.
Tangier's history has been influenced by the many different civilisations and cultures that have ruled the city since the 5th century BC. Between the period of being a strategic Berber town and then a Phoenician trading centre to the independence era around the 1950s, Tangier was a refuge for many cultures. In 1923, Tangier was considered as having international status by foreign colonial powers, and became a destination for many European and American diplomats, spies, writers and businessmen.
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.
In the pretty marina you will find water sports facilities and boat excursions. Ferries from the port depart to Melilla, Al Hoceima and Nador.
