Tangier has always been a popular choice of many travelers from neighboring countries of Gibraltar and Spain who are opting for day tours of the city, including passengers of cruise liners regularly docking here.
I have been visiting it since the Sixties and seen it change from a scruffy town to a modern city with French restaurants, beach bars and a summer influx of some of Europe's richest people… I first visited the white city, as it is known because of its dazzling buildings and fabulous light, on a day trip from Gibraltar on the shuttle plane run in those days by Gibair. When the plane was grounded by sea mist, the company put us up in the Minzah… I was smitten and have never stayed anywhere else since. With its entrance in the middle of the town and view over the bay, it is surely one of the best-placed hotels in the world… It is hard to think of a better positioned town either. On a headland where the Atlantic meets the Mediterranean and overlooking Cape Trafalgar, where Nelson lost his life, it is a must for history buffs.
