About Morocco:

Morocco is a country in North Africa with a coastline on the North Atlantic Ocean and the Mediterranean Sea, bordered by Western Sahara, Algeria, Ceuta and Melilla.

Although Morocco is just an hour’s ride on the ferry from Spain, its Islamic and deeply traditional culture seems to be so unfamiliar to most of us, despite the years of French and Spanish colonial rule. The blend of exotic and familiar, and the diversity of the landscapes all add up to bring you a unique experience in Morocco.

About Spain:

Spain is a beautiful and diverse country located in the south west of Europe. As a country well known for its beaches, the geographical and cultural diversity in Spain often comes across as a surprise to its visitors.

This exotic country really has it all, from lush meadows, green valleys and hills to snowy mountains and almost desert zones in the South. No wonder Spain ranks the third most visited European country.

In terms of getting to Spain by ferry, with the North, East and South sides of the country facing the Sea, there’s no shortage of options. From the UK, there are regular scheduled crossings available and though the crossings on offer are long, the ships are cruise like in standard which makes for an extremely pleasant trip. The same applies to the connection across the Mediterranean Sea from Italy.

From the North African coast, you can depart from Morocco, Melilla and Algeria. The services from Morocco in particular are very popular with many companies operating the connection across the strait of Gibraltar.

The Balearic and Canary Islands provide numerous connections to the mainland.
