#2 of 15 in Things to do in Ceuta
The Parque Marítimo del Mediterráneo is a leisure complex covering 55,000 m² located in the autonomous Spanish city of Ceuta, bordering northern Morocco. It consists of three artificial lakes of salt water, filtered directly from the sea. These are suitable for swimming during the summer months. The park also contains gardens, ornamental waterfalls, sunbathing areas, a stage for concerts and shows and various entertainment establishments such as bars, restaurants, pubs, a casino, and a nightclub, etc. It was designed by the versatile Lanzarote-born artist César Manrique and inaugurated in 1995, nearly three years after his death. It has similarities with Parque Marítimo César Manrique in Puerto de la Cruz, Tenerife, designed by the same architect two decades earlier. In the centre of the complex is a unique building, as it mimics the Royal Walls of Ceuta and the moat of San Felipe. This building houses the casino, a nightclub and a restaurant. The park also has a permanent exhibition about its creator, Manrique.

    Just visited Spain for a few hours during our tour of Morocco. The border crossing (round trip) is a whole company but what was enjoying swimming in this park. Delicious with views of Gibraltar, top!

    Sea water pools, we paid 3.75 to get in and sun beds are free. Clean changing rooms and showers. Lovely relaxing atmosphere in the park, with bars but also separate pools and areas away from the main pools. We love, 3.75 to you enter and hammocks free umbrellas just one euro! Water of the sea, gardens, flowers, tranquil pools. Although there are bars in inside. Perfect for couples and families, elderly... Finally beautiful place to spend a day.

    The Park of the Mediterranean is an already iconic site of the city of Ceuta. When you access it, it seems that you enter another world, an island paradise. Offers all kinds of restoration, from a pizza from the pizza delivery, beach bar with snacks and restaurant, is therefore suitable for all budgets. Everything is very clean and the Botanical Garden is spectacular very well care. You can rent an umbrella and a mattress for €3. Also it is cheaper to access the Park from 3 pm to save €1 per ticket.

  • . A gorgeous Lido. You will have seen, perhaps, the Lagoon on Tenerife. This was designed by the same person, Manrique, and is even better. Wonderful warm water as it's shallow and heated by the sun; I was surprised to learn that some people found the water chilly. There are perfect islands with plants, flowers and trees. Relaxing chairs and sunshade, bars and restaurants. We ate extremely well in the restaurant, at a lower price than on the Costa del Sol We spent a whole day there, I would have spent a whole week.
  • Multiple big pools, attractive location, lots of sun beds
  • Nice place .. the entrance around 5$... recommended
  • probably the nicest spot in the city
