MoroccoStunning beaches, a rich and ancient culture and a touch of Africa await visitors of Morocco.
What to see and do
With coastline stretching from the Mediterranean to the Sahara, Morocco has a beach for everyone. Whether its the surfers hangouts of Taghazout or Mazagan, the gorgeous sand of Agadir or the isolated beauty of Plage-Blanche, you can be sure of crystal clear water and a climate to satisfy even the hardiest sun worshippers.
Marrakech and Casablanca may be the most famous cities in the country, full of colour and character but there is much more to see and explore throughout the country. The medieval streets of Fez are well worth exploring and filled with mosaics and ornate carvings. Once home to Matisse, Tangier is a haven for artists and art lovers alike. While you can happily spend a few hours people watching in one of the hundreds of coffee shops, be sure not to miss St Andrews Church and the Grand Socco. While the capital city, Rabat, is not in many guidebooks, it is still worth a visit if you have time. From the mausoleum of King Mohamed V to the palace of the King, the capital also has a beautiful beach to catch some refreshing sea air.
