Sit with the ghosts of French spies and British secret agents as you while away the hours over a mint tea or espresso. For more information, see Rue es Siaghin & The Ville Nouvelle

2 The Caves of Hercules

Look out to sea from this grotto in the cliffs, through a cave window shaped like Africa.

4 Ancient Lixus

Extensive Roman ruins in a fine setting, which you’ll have pretty much to yourself to explore.

Wander the expansive windswept Atlantic beach and take a boat ride on the nearby lagoon, home to diverse birdlife and pink flamingos.

6 Ceuta

A Spanish enclave with a couple of forts and no less than three army museums – not to mention good beer, tapas and shops full of duty-free booze.

7 Chefchaouen

One of the prettiest and friendliest towns in Morocco, up in the Rif mountains, with a Medina full of pastel-blue houses.
