Cape Spartel (Cap Spartel) is situated 14 kilometers west of Tangier, the far northwest coast of Africa. I recommend going from Tangier in a taxi. If you have time it is best to visit on the way to the coastal town of Asilah and the Caves of Hercules, because it is worth a visit and does not take more than an afternoon or a morning. This place is special because it connects with the Mediterranean Sea and the Atlantic Ocean and has wonderful views, next to the lighthouse, where you can go up and take pictures from if the lighthouse keeper is there. The journey from Tangiers is very beautiful, with beaches and forests where birdwatchers can enjoy migrating birds heading to Europe or returning to Africa.
