The origin of Tan-Tan name, known for its generous ground water, will come from that when we dig a well and that we let down a bucket with a rope, it sounds like “tantan” on contact with water. The built-up area was born in the 1940’s under the Spanish protectorate. The port of TAN-TAN, at 24 km from town, has at disposal all the necessary implementation to receive boats of all kinds. TAN-TAN airport, at 6 km from town, is an essential element pour tourist and economic development.
