Morocco Holidays

Morocco
Overview

Morocco holidays are the perfect way to inject some adventure into your travels and Agadir's vast golden beaches are one of the best-kept secrets around. Boasting lively souks and rainbow-coloured spice markets, oasis hotel pools, desert adventures and incredible red sands, holidays in Morocco truly offer something for everyone. Mix in a fabulous year-round climate and you've got a cultural coast and city break that ticks all the boxes.

 

If you want to absorb city life, browse popular resort Marrakech's maze-like souks and markets, while those in need of a beach break can opt for cool Essaouira and Agadir to enjoy exotic sands and surfing (even for beginners!). If you're in search of exciting day trips on your Morocco holidays, head for the Atlas Mountains and visit the clifftop beauty of Kasbah Les Oudaias, or discover the Aït Bougomez Valley - also known as the 'happy valley'. Get lost in the winding streets of Plaza Uta el-Hammam, located in the heart of Chefchaouen's medina (known for its brilliant blue-white buildings) and discover hidden cafes and bars serving traditional fare – you won't want to forget your camera.

Hit the Beach

Hit the Beach


Agadir's calm, safe and golden Blue Flag beach is undoubtedly the main attraction.

Agadir has a great resort vibe with all the rides, family friendly restaurants and entertainment you would expect of a classic Med resort. Agadir's main tourist spots overlook the beach and there is a charming promenade running along the seafront. The new marina has a stylish bar and restaurant scene while more traditional tavernas can be found in the town, just a stone's throw from the beach.

During the day, the 9km beach is Agadir's most popular attraction but if you'd rather settle on more secluded sands, Sunset Beach and Palm Beach are less crowded and just as picturesque. Or head to the aptly named Kilometre 25 beach, for 25 kilometres of soft sand. Bliss!

For those who are adept at riding the waves, head to nearby Taghazout and surf breaks such as Hash Point, Anchor Point and La Source where the waves are a little more challenging.

The medieval fortress is a must-see when in Agadir.

If you're a sucker for sights, climb to the medieval hilltop fortress of Kasbah and soak up stunning views of Agadir and its golden coastline.

Dating back to 1540, all that remains of Agadir's captivating castle today is its sturdy walls and entrance. Enjoy a stroll around the fortress' remnants and imagine the scene when Berber tribes roamed the terrain.

For the quintessential Moroccan experience, why not take a camel ride along the sands in Agadir? Local guides will explain more about the history of Agadir and the surrounding areas and keep your camera ready for great pics of the beach and city and the obligatory selfie with the camels!

Experience the Markets

Experience the Markets


Marrakesh is famous for its bustling markets, from small souks to huge open air marketplaces.

As darkness descends over the Red City the evening entertainment lights it up and Marrakech transforms into a melting pot of sizzling mix of open-air restaurants, trendy bars and atmospheric cafés.

Head to Djemaa el-Fna where this ancient square is filled with street performers playing live music and stalls with open grills. Grab a cocktail and relax at Kechmara's lively rooftop bar.

Surely one of the biggest tourist magnets and a must-visit is the city's vibrant souk. This colourful warren of shops and stalls is an intoxicating mix of spice sellers, stalls selling slippers, rugs, pashminas and beautiful handicrafts. Make your way through the middle of the medina and pick up a bargain or two as you haggle over handicrafts sitting pretty on the stalls.

From the intricate detail of Bahia Palace to the desolate ruins of El Badi Palace, Marrakech is a playground for history buffs. In the heart of Marrakech you'll find the intricate 14th-century structure of Ben Youssef Medersa. It is home to some of the most beautiful art and architecture in Marrakech. Stroll down the corridors and see stunning stuccowork, open-air balconies and colourful jade green marble tiles. Nature lovers can spend time in the magnificent 12th century Menara Gardens or the oriental inspired Majorelle Gardens.

After a long day seeing the sights, head to a spa. Marrakech has an abundance of authentic hammams for those who want to truly relax. Soothe, scrub and sweat away your troubles in one of these tempting traditional baths. Hammam Dar el-Bacha is not only the city's largest but also the public hammam of choice for women.

Heritage Spa is a family friendly hammam that offers a wide variety of weird and wonderful treatments including jet lag remedies for tired travellers. If you prefer private treatments, Les Bains de Marrakech is popular with locals and tourists alike. Many of the larger hotels also offer great treatments.
