|(having fun at Torremolinos)|
Torremolinos is an attractive and appealing resort noted for its clean sandy beaches, wide choice of hotels and restaurants flanked by exclusive boutiques and gift shops and variety of entertainment and nightlife activities.

We bought some souvenirs and had hot cappuccino and packed tuna sandwiches to be eaten on the bus. Our journey continued to Algeciras for border clearance. Algeciras is a port city in the south of Spain, and is the largest city on the Bay of Gibraltar. The Port of Algeciras is one of the largest ports in Europe and in the world in three categories: container, cargo and transshipment.

From the Port of Algeciras, Tangiers is just a short ferry ride away and the gateway to the rest of Morocco. High speed ferries travel almost every hour, year round and take around 30 minutes to cross the Streets of Gibraltar. At 1600 we took one of the slower ferries that are a little cheaper. The ferry ride to Tangiers Med Port in Morocco was 1 1/2 hours and border clearance in Moroccan side was smooth, although a little unorganized.

We were met by our Moroccan tour guide and the 40-seater bus took us for dinner at one hotel restaurant, quite a distance away from our hotel. Later, we checked in for the night in Ibis Hotel situated in the suburb of Tangiers.
