Holidays in Morocco
Holidays in Morocco
Morocco is located in North Africa, with a North Atlantic and a Mediterranean coast. It is bordered by the Western Sahara to the south, Algeria to the east and the Spanish North African territories of Ceuta and Melilla to the north. The northernmost point of Morocco lies at the south of the Strait of Gibraltar. Morocco may be just a short flight from Europe, but culturally, it’s a totally different world, with all the sights, sounds and smells that Africa and Islam have to offer.
Holidays to Morocco have lots to take in
Each of Morocco’s major cities has its own appeal. Tangier was traditionally the first port of call for travellers. Its glory days may be in the past but, if you can handle the hustlers, it remains a cultural treasure trove with a vibrant nightlife and cosmopolitan population. Further down the North Atlantic coast, Casablanca is perhaps less exotic than Morocco’s other cities, but it’s the country’s commercial centre, and a focal point for contemporary art and fashion. The whitewashed fishing towns of Asalih and Essaouira offer a more authentically Moroccan experience.
Escape on holiday to Agadir for a destination with gorgeous beaches and stunning scenery. The city of Agadir has lots going on, but is not too big to feel crowded. Enjoy swimming in the warm seas and soaking up the sun during the day and explore the restaurants and sights of the city by night.
Away from the coast, the historic imperial cities of Marrakech and Fez have remained popular with visitors for centuries. The labyrinthine streets of their ancient medinas are full of mystery and intrigue; one visit is never really enough. Find out more of what holidays to Marrakech have to offer.
Away from the cities, holidays in Morocco are an opportunity to explore Roman ruins, marvel at dramatic landscapes and venture into the desert. The High Atlas mountains offer almost limitless trails between Berber villages, as well as boasting North Africa’s highest peak: Jebel Toubkal. If you don’t fancy the exercise, you can just hire a camel, ride out into the Sahara and witness the breathtaking sunsets.
Holidays in Morocco are filled with ancient wonders, with a number of UNESCO World Heritage sites you can visit. These include the Roman ruins of Volubilis, the historic city of Meknes, the Ksar of Ait Ben-Haddou, Mazagan, and the medinas of Essaouira, Fez, Marrakech and Tetouan.
