Melilla is a Spanish exclave in North Africa, on the Moroccan side of the Mediterranean. In some ways, it's kind of like Ceuta... but in other ways, it's a very unique place. It is very beautiful!

Other destinations



You are in Spain. People speak Spanish. But you are also in North Africa, so many people speak Tarifit (a variety of Berber).

Get in

By land

From Morocco. Melilla is completely surrounded by Moroccan territory, and this is obviously a very sensitive border. Many try to cross illegally into the EU, with dire consequences. Crossing legally (in either direction) is also an eye-opening experience, but presents no particular difficulties.

By air

Regular flights from Málaga

By sea

Trasmediterránea ferries from Málaga and Almería

Get around


  • Plaza de España surrounded by grand buildings
  • Modernismo architecture
  • Old synagogue, now a giant bargain/junk store run by Chinese people.
