At the moment, there is one company in tarifa which organizes the ferry trip from Tarifa to Tanger. The Tangier-Tarifa ferry takes about 40 minutes. The ferries are in good conditions. There are toilets on board. You can have a drink and something to eat as well. Normally it’s a very pleasant ride with stunning views. Have your camera with you during this ride. Due to weather conditions, it can sometimes be unpleasant for people who easily become seasick. The ferry leaves from the port in the centre of Tarifa. Which is easily found by looking at the road signs by entering Tarifa.
Where to book Tangier-Tarifa ferry tickets
You can book the tickets for the ferry online at http://www.frs.es. On this site you can also find the tarifa-tanger timetables. In Tarifa are different shops where they also sell tickets for the Tangier-Tarifa ferry. Just look for the ‘FRS’ sign outside a shop.
With ‘FRS’ you can also book excursions to Morocco. They organize day-trips and multi day-trips, starting from 59 euro. These excursions are nice, interesting and worth the money. If you like to explore the town by yourself, that’s no problem. Tangier is a good place to discover without a guide.
Parking in Tarifa
There is a secured parking lot at the Tarifa port (ferry terminal) where you have to pay fee. There are some other secured parking lots but they are a bit further away. You can also park your car in the streets of Tarifa but then it’s not secured. Especially during the summer months (July and August) it’s recommended not to leave any belongings in the car. In these months it can also be very hard to find a parking space, due to the busy period.
