“Don't swim there”
Reviewed 29 August 2013

although the walk in the corniche of tangier is something you can not bypass but the beach itself isn't good for swimming, water isn't clean although it looks great.

“The wather is cold”
Reviewed 29 July 2013

The sand is clean but the water is very cold (I went in Tangier during the month of August - summer in Morrocco).

“Nice views but messy”
Reviewed 30 March 2013

Tangier beach is in a crescent shaped bay running from the old Tangier port towards Malabata.It is a pleasant hours walk, but is poorly kept out of season. Quite a lot of rubbish and at the moment a lot of works going on along its length, particularly building a marina near the old port. Water of doubtful quality. There are one or two very smelly rivers that runs into the bay as you walk up towards Malabata .

“Very large with nice views, but dirty”
Reviewed 5 February 2013

January is the low season, but even then, the beach was quite dirty with glass, plastic, other trash strewn about. Not many people about, so we had our run of the beach. The views of downtown Tangier are quite nice, as is the view across to Spain.
