Ceuta is another autonomous region in Spain, which is located on the African shore and of Strait of Gibraltar. It has Almina, a small peninsula towards the East, and is bordered by the Mediterranean Sea to the north, east and south.

There is a lot to do at Ceuta – From the basking under the beach sun and strolling by the waters, to exploring a variety of monuments left by centuries of civilisation. The archaeological sites like Phoenicians, located just in front of the famous cathedral, and then the Roman basilica with specific museums to tour through, there is simply a lot to find here. The castle Desnarigado or Strength of the Ax is another popular place to get to. However, the vistas at Ceuta stand out over anything else. The presence of the seas makes them look much more beautiful.

For entertainment, get to some salt lakes and restaurants. Get to Mediterraneo Marine Park, gaze at the posthumous works of Cesar Manrique, and then move to the larger works. There is a village harbour which can be an ideal place for a getaway. This place is quiet and scenic and has several pubs and restaurants serving unique Spanish food.

The city of Ceuta is known to link cultures from different continents. There are Christians, Muslims, Hindus and Jews living here in harmony. Don’t miss out on the Royal Walls as you mingle with the locals, and see what more they have to offer about the region. Take some time to paddle about in a kayak and spot some dolphins, turtles and whales. The coastline is popular among scuba divers, while you see lush green on the other hand. Look for the spot where to see the Atlantic Ocean and the Mediterranean Sea meeting and mingling together. This is one of the finest views to grab here.
