So we went. Now Tangiers is not in the top 5 of best places to visit in Morocco, I know that, but the Hafa Cafe is definitely in the top 5 places to visit in Tangiers.
It's been around since 1921 and over the years it has attracted many artsy types such as artists, singers and writers and even the Beatles and the Stones have been known to come here to chill out. These days it's a popular hangout for locals smoking their shisha pipes as well as tourists who come here to rest their weary feet after a day of sightseeing.
And I could see why. The setting is simply stunning. Hafa Cafe is set on a rocky cliff overlooking the Strait of Gibraltar and on a sunny day the views stretch as far as Spain. It's an open air cafe with terraces that slope down gradually, with lots of secluded nooks and crannies. Lots of privacy guaranteed.
