TANGIER
The town beach and the trash

Tangier is very much a tourist town, serving everything from Moroccan families on 2 month holidays to Europeans on one-day African excursions. The town beach has a great setting: it makes up a several kilometre long curve with the white houses of Tangier as a frame before it ends in the barren mountains of which there is nothing further north than sea and the European continent.

Tangier, Morocco

The western end of the beach is the most crowded and therefore also the dirtiest. The ferry in the background is one of many that connect Tangier to Spain.

The sad fact about the beach here is that it is practically never cleaned, and that the water is not very much better.
