Melilla is Spanish territory in North Africa so you can use Euro here and speak Spanish. Melilla is a territorio franco so no taxes are being paid (not even VAT), which means you can do a lot of shopping at excellent prices. But the town is also very charming and spending a day here is a good choice. Plus you can literally walk to Morocco since the border is at only 2 km from the city’s main square.
Just like in the ferries from Almeria to Melilla, this route also offers ferries until October 31, while on other routes the ferries stop working by mid-September.
