A jewel in the heart of the North African coastline, Morocco is a melting pot of culture in Marrakech, yet also serves up a decent dose of sandy beaches and sizzling sunshine, enjoyed from the comfort of a sunlounger in Agadir. Morocco invites holidaymakers to enjoy a short haul exotic destination, and its perfect fusion of modern and traditional influences make it a holiday like no other.

Great Places to Visit

Haggle in the souks, soak up the culture or kick back and relax as the waves crash against the shore; your choices are endless with a break in Morocco.

Sunbathe and Shop in Agadir

The 6 miles of golden sands that Agadir boasts are perfect for a Blue Flag beach break, but if you head into the centre you will find a modern city which offers continental cafes, authentic restaurants and souks to explore. Learn how to haggle for a bargain, or simply press your toes into the warm sands overlooking the Atlantic.

Venture into the Atlas Mountains

Stretching across North Africa, the Atlas Mountains show a whole new side to Morocco. Gone are the bustling medinas and sweeping beaches; instead, the mountains are a haven for hikers, climbers, cavers and trekkers who want to get closer to nature during their holiday while stumbling upon traditional Berber villages as they go.

Explore the Sahara Desert

From the dunes to the hidden oases that they hold, the Sahara Desert is an adventure waiting to be had, and within easy access of Moroccan resorts via excursion or self-drive. Whether you choose to explore via ATV or traditional camel, this huge desert holds an abundance of excitement ready for the taking.

Enjoy Magical Marrakech

This bustling city is a highlight of Morocco, with colourful markets and spice-scented souks sitting beside majestic mosques and trendy boutiques. Jemaa el-Fna Square is a must-see, even if you’re not in the mood for haggling – snake charmers, belly dancers and pavement cafes dishing up Moroccan fare are still worth the visit.

Getting Around

Morocco is fairly compact, and so getting around should be easy. Trains and buses go almost everywhere, and shared grands taxis cover most of the major areas, day and night. They always travel with six passengers, so can get cramped! Petits taxis operate in major towns and cities too, and are very convenient. Car hire is available, with ATVs being ideal for mountain and desert tracks, or pistes!

By Bus

There is an excellent bus network around the country, and it’s the cheapest and most popular mode of public transport. Travel is efficient and reliable, and most buses are comfy and air-conditioned.

By Car

Driving around Morocco in a hire car is a great way of enjoying this beautiful country, but Moroccan drivers can make the journeys a little challenging, so beware. Drive on the right.
