Ferries to Algeria

With its geographical position at the top of North Africa, Algeria is ideally located for ferry services from mainland Spain. In addition to this, with the cultural influences from its French past there are a number of routes from France. Wherever you sail from, all services across the Mediterranean Sea are relatively long and it is advisable to book a comfortable cabin accommodation for the best possible sailing experience.

Almeria is the Spanish port that offers services to Oran and Ghazaouet in Algeria, and both of these destinations will allow you to easily immerse yourself into Algerian culture. Ghazaouet is a gateway to the Tlemcen National Park - an area of Algeria that includes waterfalls, historic architecture and forests. Oran is the second largest city in the country, and stunning examples of classical Arabic architecture can be found all over the city - even the railway station is designed in a style that cannot be found anywhere else in the world.

Marseille, on the south coast of France, has a wide variety of destinations for passengers wishing to sail to Algeria. Ferries run on a regular basis to Algiers, Bejaia, Oran, Annaba and Skikda, and each of these ports offers a unique insight into the Algerian cultural experience.

Algiers is the Capital City of the country, and the Monument of the Martyrs is a construction that simply must be visited. It was built to commemorate those who died during the lengthy struggle for Algerian Independence, and looking at the surrounding statues offers a fascinating history lesson about the different stages that led to the current state of Algeria.

Annaba is an Algerian destination that has something to offer every type of tourist. The region is made up of visitor hotspots that are centred around beautiful beaches and picturesque mountains, and once the sun goes down it becomes one of the most vibrant areas for night-life in the country. Green Main Street takes this one step further by offering a vibrant and exciting district to visit where the fun begins in the afternoon. Its position towards the end of Algeria's coastline makes it the ideal place to begin an Algerian motoring adventure.

Wherever you decide to arrive in Algeria by ferry, it is a great way of bridging the motoring gap between Europe and North Africa. The country's rich history of maritime activity means that a diverse variety of tourist attractions and major urban centres can be found on the coast, and a trip inland will offer you the chance to experience a more authentic experience away from the tourist traps.

Alternatively, continuing along the coast to Morocco or Tunisia are also possibilities, and Annaba in particular is very close to the Tunisian border.

Algeria reviews

  • "Mostly good "

    We travelled by day from Barcelona to Palma, and we were the only foot passengers on the ferry. There were maybe 30 truck drivers and tourists with cars on the whole ship so it felt rather strange, like a ghost ship. The journey was shorter than scheduled so we arrived in Palma a good hour and a half earlier than anticipated. But the bus that took us off the ferry only gave us an option of drop-off at the Cathedral or at the ferry port the other end of town. Our hotel was inbetween the two, so we had a very long walk. Coming back we went overnight. The cabin was OK. The main annoyance was that the Trasmediterranea check-in desk is so far away from the city centre. We went there in the afternoon to check in while we still had a hire car but it was closed. So in the evening after we had dropped off our hire car, we had to drag our suitcase the entire length of the marine drive which took nearly an hour. We waited an hour after checking in for a bus to arrive, then all the foot passengers had to sit on the bus with the engine running for a full half hour for no apparent reason before it took us all the way back to where we’d come from, near the Cathedral area. Why can’t they have a check-in desk near to where the ferry actually sails from? The ferry itself was fine. It looked like a good restaurant although we didn’t eat on board, and there’s a bar and a swimming pool. The seats all seem to be deliberately designed to be too uncomfortable to sleep in, so if you want to sleep you’ll have to get a cabin.

  • "Missed ferry, no instructions "

    There were no instruction which ferry port to go to. Gran Canaria has 2 ferry ports run by the same company. We went to the new ferry terminal to be told there was no boat, the other ferry was 3 miles away, we o ly had 10 minutes and didn't make it. Had to pay more than twice the price for the fast ferry an hour later. I recommended direct ferries to many travellers and I won't anymore, because there was 6 in my group and 3 had booked where i had fire Ted them to the site. So it was obviously very embarrassing situation for me.

  • "Awesome Experience"

    I particularly want to thank the staff member who was EXCEPTIONALLY helpful and kind and courteous. He helped me with my suitcase on and off the ferry, helped my friend with his dog and served a mean cup of coffee behind the bar. Thank you. You made the trip very pleasant. Just wished I'd got your name😁
