The view was a tad underwhelming - we did see it in the evening and during the day and you can't actually see a lot of the medina as the view is obscured by plants. There is a bit of an ocean view, but nothing...More

Just a useful high spot above the city looking out over the ocean towards Spain and Gibraltar. There's a big esplanade lined with cannon and you'll find locals resting and chatting.

This was the best panoramic view of the city of Tangier and its beaches. It is a perfect stop to rest and enjoy some pictures.

Terrasse des Paresseux provides sweeping views of the port and on a clear day if you are lucky you might see Gibraltar and Spain too. A set of ancient cannons faces the bay...looking really stunning at sunset.

The Terrasse des Paresseux is one of the city's most famous locales, adjacent to the iconic coffee spot Gran Cafe de Paris, with antique cannons and a view over part of the old city and the port. Between the unwanted attention of street hawkers and...More
