Arabic holiday resort with a marina. Marina Smir is pretty westernised and cruisers report that the normal Moroccan strict dress code don’t seem to apply here. If in doubt dress cautiously first and then see what others are doing. Nice promenade with cafes.
watch out for the fishing nets near the port
Moor: the harbour entrance is very narrow due to silting, but is buoyed; keep hard to the starboard side of the channel.
Go alongside the Customs/fuel berth (to port just inside the entrance) and take your boat papers and passports up to the office.
Papers are not now normally retained by the Marina Office. Ensure that you officially clear out with Police (24 hours) and Customs before leaving the marina. Immigration office are friendly and laid back. French, English and Spanish spoken. Both alongside berthing and Med mooring (with either lazy lines or your own anchor) are possible.

metered water and electricity (220V and 380V), showers, toilets, travel-lift of 150 tons, shipyard, gas oil, etc. The marina is surrounded by restaurants, much more pricey than those in town. Buses run from the marina into town or take a taxi.
Don't miss: take a taxi to visit Tétouan and Chefchaouen
