Ferries from Algeciras to Ceuta (and return)


ceutaThe Ceuta to Algeciras ferry schedule is available at the bottom of the article.

When you plan to get from Spain to Morocco there are plenty of plane and ferry routes to choose from, depending on the city you plan to depart from and the budget you’ve got available.

Without a doubt, the shortest route is the ferry from Tarifa to Tangier, but the ferry from Algeciras to Tangier is another good option to look into.

Besides these two great choices, there’s also the Algeciras to Ceuta route, provided by ferries run by several companies. Ceuta is a Spanish enclave located on the North African side of the Gibraltar Straight. Ceuta also uses Euro (just like Spain). There aren’t many things to do here — except for shopping, visiting the lighthouse and the fort — so your best bet is to cross the border into Morocco and plan your day from there.
