With an area of around 12 sq. km it is one of two permanently inhabited Spanish administered cities on the continent of Africa, the other being Ceuta. The closest city in Morocco to Melilla is Nador and the Moroccan settlement of Beni Ansar lies immediately to the south. Radiating out in a semicircle around the beach and port of Melilla is the city itself and is on the eastern side of the peninsular of Cape Tres Forcas, at the bottom of Mount Gurugu and at the mouth of the Rio de Oro.

The city's port offers passenger ferry connections to Almeria and Malaga on the Spanish mainland. The passenger and cargo route between Europe and Morocco use the ferry links to Melilla. As a result, the port and associated business form an important source of income for the city.
