Evidently, being edged by two big surfaces of water, Morocco own lot of beaches and several of them are favourite destinations for thousands of tourists every year for various activities.
While leaving from the north and very close to the Mediterranean, the Crescent rifain is the name given to a beach situated to the East of Tétouan. This beach is characterized by the alternation of the mountains of the Rif and the sea. More to the East but always to the north, the bay Al Hoceima offers a superb beach nicknamed the blue Pearl. it is characterized by its beauty and its thin sand.
For the side of the Atlantic, the beaches are even more numerous, more attractive, and larger since Tangiers to Lgouira in the south of Morocco. It is a recipe with so varied beaches. Oualidya in El Jadida, Sidi Kaouki, Imssrane, and Smimo in Essaouira; Inzagane, Taghazoute, Mirlafte and the white coast of Agadir; the fabulous beaches of TanTan, Gulmim and of Sidi Ifni.
In a word, all desires for the ones in love with the beach (swimming, surfing, fishing…) will be served in Morocco.
Arrive at Marrakech‘s Menara International Airport. Our staff will welcome you in the airport and will drive you to the hotel or Riad.
Travel to visit the seaside resort of El Jadida. The miles of sandy beaches of El Jadida are often obscured by warm mists; its carefree atmosphere and the interesting old Portuguese town make it a pleasant stopping place. Many of the town’s main routes are beautiful avenues planted with mature long-trunked palm trees.
About 90km further south, past a series of coastal salt-marshes, you come to the pretty little bay of Oualidia famous for its oyster-beds. There are two hotels with good seafood restaurants and two campsites built around the ruined 17th century Kasbah of the Saadian Sultan El Oulid and a royal villa.
Two days dedicated to bathing and relaxation on the beach of the coastal city of Essaouira. The fortifications of the old town shelter Portuguese, French and Berber architecture. With its whitewashed houses, quiet places, friendly cafes, numerous artisans and the delicious fresh fish make this a charming place to visit.
You arrive at Ranch Reha, a Moroccan “Dude Ranch” which is located about 5km north of the city. Ranch Reha is home to 40 magnificent Arabian horses that are available for you to ride on short jaunts into the hinterlands or to race along the beach. Here you will find basic accommodations, but the food is excellent, the pace is slow and the faces are friendly You are within a short walking distance of the beach so if horseback riding is not to your liking you may stroll ¾ of a mile up the beach to find pleasant Oceanside cafes, souvenir shops and drinking establishments. At night you will be lulled to sleep by the peace and quiet that abounds at Ranch Reha and by the rhythmic sounds of the Atlantic Ocean on the beach.
Tata is a city of the Anti-Atlas Mountains and is a good stopping point before resuming the track. It is a quiet town in pastel tones of pink, blue and yellow.
The walled city of Taroudannt sits, like a miniature Marrakech, in the heart of the valley. Centuries ago Taroudannt served as a staging post for dynasties on the road to power, and was a temporary seat of government before the capture of Marrakech itself. In 1912, it was also the stronghold of El Hiba, the “Blue Sultan”, whose short-lived revolt against the French protectorate ended in his bloody expulsion at the hands of High Atlas Berbers allied to the colonial power.
Discover Marrakech, the famous “Red City”. Visit the immense souk (market), and plunge into the excitement of the place Jemaa el Fna. Be enchanted by the dancers, snake-charmers, jugglers, narrators, singers. Cool off with an orange juice in front of the numerous workshops.
