Tangier was once a major destination hotspot in the Mediterranean as this international city had its own laws and administrative system but when the Moroccan independence was attained in 1955, the business that had made the city what it was moved to Switzerland and Spain. But from its fall, Tangier boulevards have now a new stylish café society which has started to rebuild it to its former glorious state. One of the most breathtaking view that has to be seen is the sight of the Spanish coast from across the Strait of Gibraltar.

When the Atlantic high tides flood the caves, the water gushes up through these massive holes in the ground and hillside. This is apparently where the mythical figure Hercules went to rest after he finished his twelve labours.
It is unsure how the caves were exactly formed as they are partially natural and partially manmade. It has been rumored that an ancient civilization for some reason used to carve millstone out of the solid rock that made giant caves over the years which have all baffled experts as to how they could have done it with such simple and crude tools that they had.
The colours within the caves at low tide are breathtaking, but it is advised that if your not a strong swimmer do not to venture into the ocean as the currents offshore can be very strong and quite dangerous. It has also been said that the caves of St Michaels were once joined and that it would have been possible for the Barbary Apes to cross over.
A large majority of the rooms are sun facing, south-easterly which allows the views of the garden and the Bay of Tangiers uninterrupted. When designing and decorating the El Minzah Hotel the owners wanted to ensure that it reflected the magnificence and purity of the Andalusian good taste in which restraint and richness were considered of equal importance in producing harmonious interiors.
Outside the hotel there are activities such as Golf, Tennis and Horse riding.
