Shadows of development
The setting is quite brilliant. Nador avoids one touristic problem for the African part of the Mediterranean coast: You never get the both the sea and the sun in front of you (which you do on the European side). Nador is actually facing south, and even more, right outside it there is a lagoon. Sounds great?
But Nador was set out to be an industrial town, and is stamped by that today.
Cement factory and a university, and official offices dominates, not happy tourists. There are no beach side restaurants, no picturesque ports with fishermen returning at sunset. And unless I was seriously misguided, Nador comes without any important sights and good museums.

Restaurants and alternatives
Fairly good on restaurants, especially downtown, where you can eat fish you choose from large trays with fish. You pay according to weight, and it is quite affordable.
All necessary banks for changing money.
Bus and shared taxis are the only sensible ways of moving out of Nador, particularly because the station of Nador is very central. People having their own vehicle, will have few problems moving around inside the city.
