Moroccan holidays

If you’re looking for a sun-soaked break with a difference, look no further than a holiday in Morocco.

Morocco’s accessible location in North Africa has earned it a reputation as the west’s gateway to Africa. With its subtropical climate, white sand beaches, vast mountains, and wild desert landscapes, Morocco has a lot to offer for poolside-dwellers with an adventurous streak.

Visit Marrakech or Fez and immerse yourself in the labyrinth marketplaces - find a bargain and try some food from one of the street vendors before relaxing at a luxury spa hotel. Alternatively, stay on the Atlantic coast in Hollywood-famed Casablanca or action-packed Essaouira.

Magnificent Morocco

Whether you’re planning a couples holiday with a difference, a family trip with plenty of activities to keep the kids entertained, or a city break with friends, there are holidays to Morocco for everyone. The best time to visit coastal cities such as Casablanca, or Morocco’s capital city Rabat, is during the summer months as the climate is considerably cooler than inland. Winter is the perfect time to visit Marrakech or Oaurzazate where temperatures soar during the hotter months.

Mezzes and mountains

There’s no shortage of activities when you choose a holiday to Morocco. Camel trekking is usually high on everyone’s to-do list, or, if you prefer speed, it’s possible to explore Morocco’s dunes by quad bike. The area is blessed with a beautiful and largely undeveloped coastline where you can try your hand at a variety of water sports, or simply lie back and enjoy the stunning view. For an entirely different perspective book a tour of the Atlas mountain range which cuts right through Morocco; separating the coast from the Sahara.

Moroccan food is famous worldwide; couscous and tajines – delicious, meaty stews served in a clay pot - are amongs the most popular dishes and green tea with mint is the beverage of choice. There’s also a thriving fishing industry so if you’re staying on the coast sampling fresh fish is a must.

Culture and the great outdoors

The Hassan II Mosque in Casablanca is Morocco’s largest mosque and is well worth a visit; this breathtaking building has a glass floor and juts out over the Atlantic Ocean. Another cultural highlight is Kairaouine University in Fez, widely recognised as the world’s oldest university.

If you want to escape the hustle and bustle of the cities, there is a wide range of national parks to explore; Toubkal National Park being the most popular. Toubkal is situated up in the High Atlas mountain range and offers climbing and trekking opportunities for a holiday in Morocco for all abilities. The relative remoteness of this region has resulted in the local inhabitants living a traditional and rural lifestyle that has remained largely unchanged for centuries and makes a fascinating experience.

Night owls will find Marrakech’s nightlife has much to offer; belly dancers and snake charmers patrol the historic Medina at dusk and late-night clubs light up Marrakech’s new town.

As Morocco is such a varied destination it is a good idea to hire a car or take advantage of the many tours on offer, if you can drag yourself away from your hotel that is!
