The annual Bride Festival in Imilchil welcomes visitors from outside of the Berber community. Sale retains a longstanding tradition with its Wax Lantern Festival.

Morocco Vacation Spots

The beach and the beach walk, a primary activity center, draw vacationers to Tangier. Its medina is large and well-kept for its age, with narrow streets and vastly interesting areas of history. The houses of Tangier include decorated gates and painted doors. The North features the Mediterranean Coast, with beaches made of gold sand. More inland, the Rif Mountains sit beautifully, with deep gorges and the view of fir and cedar forests beyond. These forests are inhabited by Barbary apes.

The North Atlantic Coast of Morocco contains several hundred miles of beaches and is known for high quality surfing. Popular resorts along the coast include Asilah, Larache, and Moulay Bousselham. The capital city of Morocco, Rabat, has a medina (old city area) and the historic defensive walls of the Casbah. Casablanca, Morocco’s largest city, shows its mixed architectural styles of neo-Moorish, Art-Deco, and contemporary. In Casablanca, find outstanding nightlife, superb restaurants, and high quality shopping.

Morocco’s South Atlantic Coast offers more pristine beaches to soak up the often-shining sun. Agadir is the premium resort area on the coast, with gold sand beaches, great water sports, and lots of fun for golf lovers. Enjoy the variety of architectural styles found in Essaouira, and the citadel with huge walls, named the Cité Portugaise, in the coastal town of El Jadida. Explore around the red mud walls encircling Taroudant, treat the eyes to the breathtaking scenery of the Ameln Valley, and Tafraoute’s colorful landscape.,

Central Morocco opens up many possibilities for the vacationer; one of these sight-filled areas is Fez, where tanneries sit beside the mosques and markets. Meknés brings vacationers into an exciting past of palaces and monuments, and the markets, called souks, blend in and treat visitors to shopping for silver bracelets and carpets. Not far away is the UNESCO World Heritage Site of Volubilis, and contrasting is the villas of the alpine resort Ifrane. Several towns provide respite, such as Oujda and Figuig.

South Morocco and the Kasbah Trail were once filled with caravans en route between Morocco and the Sahara. The desert trail, which actually consists of two routes, passes through lush river valleys and the Dadès Valley, which features gorges. The Ziz Valley has what is considered the most significant Moroccan oasis, Tafilalet, with a palm tree grove nourished by waters. Along the trail is Zagora, a popular tourism destination.

The background setting of Marrakech is the High Atlas Mountains, topped with snow during winter and early spring. These seasons allow the ski resorts to flourish, while other months are the choice of walkers and hikers. The tiny Berber villages are home to friendly people offering the Moroccan welcome of mint tea. Marrakech is a maze of alleyways and a cultural center in a oasis of thousands of date palm trees. Palaces, markets, museums, and mosques all come together to greet those visiting Marrakech.

Morocco’s Deep South region is practically an undiscovered marvel where cliffs and beaches of white sand beckon in Ad’Dakhla. Besides this landscape of beauty, the sea life includes sea lions and whales. Visit the large square Place Méchouar in Laâyoune, complete with a monument placed on each corner. The National Cultural Centre, also in Laâyoune, exhibits works in a multitude of languages ranging from Arabic to English.
