Last night we went out for dinner to try the local food. Not really sure about which one to choose, we went for the most popular, which was Cafe Nord. The seating is out on the grass facing the beach, and service is very relaxed. Dave and I put this down to us being too used to fast food places like Pizza hut, where if they take more than 35 minutes we start huffing. But the food was great and of course cheap, i think the bill for four drinks, two chips and two big pizzas came to less than £20 total. After that we wandered a bit further down the street, then crossed over and walked next to the beach back to the campsite. Unfortunately the campsite is out of season, as the swimming pool ... read more

Well at last dave and me are finally in Morocco. Unfortunately Mark and his father in law have had a hell of a trip, and are still not with us.

Africa » Morocco » Tangier-Tétouan » Martil June 27th 2008

I had never heard of Martil - which was my biggest reason for going there. It turned out to be a small beach town, very relaxed and full of tourists, all of whom were Moroccan. Once again I excaped the tourist traps created for foreigners and found myself mixed in with tourists from Fes, Marrakech, Tetouan and Casablanca, plus the usual assortment of locals. Martil is a short taxi ride from Tetouan, which is an hour or so by bus from Tangier. I have heard great things about Tetouan, but didn´t stop to visit the city since I was eager to get out to the beach. Guys on the beach rent parasols for a few dirhams for the day and I spent my mornings and evenings at the beach. Life on the Mediterranean requires a midday ... read more
