Chefchaouen, the Blue City

Dani

There are too many places and experiences out there for a person to know them all, but I figured why not give it a try? Travel has become an addiction and I'm here to share it with you. If you want to distract me, put a soccer ball at my feet, a sunset in my sights and the ocean splashing my toes. In a nutshell, this is me.

    Hi Dani. I’m planning to head to Chefchaouen. How do I get from Chefchaouen to Tangier Med. You make it looks easy to transfer from Tangier to Tangier Med.

      To get from Chefchaouen to Tangier Med isn’t too difficult. We ended up taking an extra taxi because we didn’t know the best option until we were there. There isn’t a direct bus to Tangier Med from Chefchaouen, at least when we were there. We paid 40MAD (~$4) at the bus station the day before for tickets to Tangier. We then took a taxi (from the street instead of the bus station ones) to the port to get a ferry to Spain. They are about 100MAD more from this port. So we took a taxi to the train station (if I remember correctly). On the left side of the train station there is a bus stop (Its not really obvious – but there are some official bus people we asked and we also asked a bunch of locals beforehand to confirm). It was like 7-10MAD to tangier Med from there. So really cheap! Ferry from Tangier Med to Algeciras was 300MAD – there are a lot of different companies and we just bought there instead of online (This was in low season though – but plenty of space on these huge ferries). So recap: Bus from Chefchaouen to Tangier, then taxi to train station, last bus from train station to Tangier Med. We missed our stop and had to double back its not the last stop so make sure you ask the bus driver or locals. I hope this helps!

    I’m glad I found your post but I was hoping you could clarify some details for me. I need to get to Tangier by about 2am to catch a 5am flight to Madrid. I will be staying in Chefchaouen the day prior. Would it be possible to grab a bus in the evening from Chefchoaouen and make it to Tangier round about midnight? The CTM website isn’t much help as it tells me its bus can get me from Chefchaouen to Tangier in 1.5 hours :D. Thanks!

      Our bus was more like 2.5 – 3 hours. They are known for being late and running behind. We found a schedule online but when we were there in town we found another company with a better time for us. You can make it, but it would be cutting it close, which is scary. They could possibly change times or wait if the bus doesn’t have enough people so they aren’t running too empty. When are you going? We were there during low season and there were only 2 bus companies and only a few times a day. Good luck! I hope it all works out!
