Port of Ceuta
Ceuta is a Spanish city located in Northern Africa with plenty of history, hustle and bustle and cultural variety. It is an example of coexisting cultures as its Christian, Muslim, Hindu and Jewish cultures blend together in perfect harmony.
The only way to reach Ceuta from the Iberian Peninsula is by sea, and hence the importance of its port that links it to the Iberian Peninsula by ferry via Algeciras. Its passenger traffic increases each year as reflected in the statistics published on the maritime authority’s official website. These figures show growth year after year, not surprising given that, over recent years, the port authority has vastly improved the areas allocated to passenger, vehicle and goods traffic to open up new commercial possibilities and improve the experiences of customers.
It’s a small port, although it is very well signposted and offers all the services expected of a port.
How to get there
In Ceuta, the port is relatively near the centre. If you’re not in a rush, from the port to the centre, where the main hotels are, it’s a pleasant 15 minute stroll with incredible views of the coast.
There is no bus service to either the port or train station in the city, so the only way of getting there is by foot, car or taxi.
You can access the Port of Ceuta via N352. Once in the city, follow directions to the port. You’re five minutes from the centre by car and 4 kilometres from the border with Morrocco.
The Radio Taxi company is located on the Alfau dock (no street number). Their number is +34 956 515 406, although there are several taxi ranks, both at key points in the city and at the port itself. There is also a taxi rank at the border. If you don’t feel like walking, this is your best option.
The Port of Ceuta is a small port when compared to the Port of Algeciras. But this doesn’t mean that it doesn’t have all the necessary services for passengers. There are kiosks where you can get information about the city as well as nearby places of interest in Morocco, as well as lounge areas, bars and restaurants selling mainly fast food, where you can catch a bite to eat whilst waiting for your ferry.
There are also gift shops with souvenirs of the city and a few bazaars where you can buy local products.
Right at the entrance to the port, there is a petrol station and several shops and supermarkets.
In the Port of Ceuta, there is a public car park with 252 spaces. It has rates by the minute or by the day, as well as monthly passes and the first half hour is free. It’s located at the port itself, with 24 hour surveillance and any kind of vehicle can park here.
