Explore another side of Morocco along its Atlantic coast
Think Morocco and you’ll probably imagine images of rolling Saharan dunes and Berber tribes in the High Atlas. But there’s another, equally enticing side to Morocco. The country’s Atlantic coast region stretches hundreds of miles along virtually unspoiled coastline and is home to some of Africa’s best beaches.
Just a few hours down the coast from Marrakech you’ll discover the beach town of Essaouira, a surprising surfing and water sports destination. The medina here is one of the country’s many UNESCO World Heritage Sites, and a highlight of our Atlantic coast holidays in Morocco. You can also explore the narrow paths of the charming 18th-century old quarter with its blue doors and whitewashed houses.
A little further down the coast between Essaouira and Casablanca, you’ll stumble across Oualidia and discover one of Morocco's most beautiful lagoons. It’s all backdropped by one of the country’s most dramatic natural landscapes. And if you love food, you’re in for a real gastronomic treat. We’ve hand picked L'Heure Bleue Palais and La Sultana Oualidia, two sensational eateries to dazzle your tastebuds.
