What to see in Ceuta

As it is surrounded by sea, Ceuta offers Blue Flag beaches such as la Ribera in the centre of the city. Beyond the historical parts of Ceuta, within the walls, other areas which are worth a visit while you’re here include the House of the Dragons and the area of Monte Hacho. To fully explore this zone you can stop off at the numerous observation points, small forts, and watchtowers… so choose to board the ferry to Ceuta in your own car to enjoy all areas of the city at your own pace.

San Amaro Park is another unmissable stop on this journey: this green lung in Ceuta is over 20,000 m2.
