Martil (Arabic: مرتيل‎‎) is a sea resort northeast of Tetouan, Morocco in the Mediterranean Sea. The resort constitutes the end of the Martil Valley.

The name Martil comes from the Spanish name of Río Martín at the time of the Spanish protectorate of Northern Morocco.[1] To the north is the golfing resort of Cabo Negro.
