World's Most Beautiful Ferry Rides: Spain and Morocco

Spain & Morocco: Between Algeciras and Ceuta

On this ferry from Europe to Africa travelers see the dramatic Pillars of Hercules: the Rock of Gibraltar and both contenders for the African Pillar—Monte Hacho in Ceuta, the autonomous North African city, and Jebel Musa in Morocco. (Historians debate which of these is correct.) The people-watching is just as beautiful: Berber passengers from various tribes in Morocco wear colorful traditional dress and geometric tattoos—and usually ask not to be photographed.
