Built on a cliff, this café offers a splendid view of the ocean. Its location, its atmosphere, and its famous mint tea have attracted many people including the Rolling Stones, Jimi Hendrix, Sean Connery, and the writer Paul Bowles. In his book The City of a Thousand and One Lights, he wrote: “I am going back to the Hafa café. It is on its terrace that I continue to dream. Time has changed everything except this place. Secret and silent, the Hafa café has remained as before, magical. Generation after generation, this is where chess players, poets, writers, artists meet. And, installed on the old straw mats, they still abandon themselves to the sweet illusions of Kif ”.

To get to Hafa cafe, it is better to have a car. If you don't have one there, you can rent one or you can get there by a Taxi, there busses that go by it but it would be complicated for you to know which one to get and from where.
