Morocco Holidays


Morocco offers a taste of the exotic – from the enduring imperial cities of Marrakech, Fez, Meknes and Rabat, to the rugged beauty of the deserts, beaches and mountains.

This country bursts with colour and intrigue as you delve into spice-filled souks, stroll along atmospheric alleys or relax and unwind in a steamy hammam.

In Marrakech, visit the Koutoubia Mosque with its impressive minaret, the Saadian Tombs dating back to the 16th Century and the colourful maze of the famous souks of the Medina. When it comes to where to stay, we have a wonderful selection of Marrakech accommodation ranging from boutique riads to luxury resorts.

After exploring the city, head to the High Atlas Mountains to enjoy some of the most spectacular scenery the country has to offer or opt for a few days of relaxation in the laidback beachside town of Essaouira.

  • WHERE TO GO IN MOROCCO

    Morocco holiday highlights map
    Marrakech
    Lively, charming and atmospheric, Marrakech has been enchanting its guests for over 1,000 years. Visit a gallery in the glamorous Ville Nouvelle, lose yourself in the colourful and vibrant maze of souks and be mesmerised by the snake charmers and fortune tellers in Djemaa el Fna Square which is the beating heart of this fabulous city.
    Atlas Mountains
    North Africa’s greatest mountain range is known locally as Idraren Draren, meaning 'mountain of mountains', and stretches across Morocco from the Atlantic coast. Dotted with remote Berber villages and spectacular flora filled valleys, the Atlas Mountains are easily accessible from Marrakech and offer scenic retreats or a more active hiking adventure - a nature lover’s dream.
    Essaouira & Other Beaches
    Breezy Essaouira offers a picturesque, fortified medina which is full of galleries and a fabulous sandy beach popular with kite surfers. El-Jadida, south of Casablanca, is beautifully preserved and its long sandy beaches are less crowded and good for swimming. Charming Assilah’s medina walls feature colourful murals while its sandy beaches are popular with tourists and friendly locals.
    Fez
    Medieval, magical, chaotic and charming, Morocco’s oldest imperial city dates back to the 8th Century. The ancient medina will stimulate your senses as you pass through the spice markets and visit tanneries where techniques have remained unchanged for centuries. Examples of Islamic architecture and artistry can be found around every corner and the Kairaouine Mosque and University is thought to be the oldest university in the world.
    Casablanca & Rabat
    Once a Berber fishing village, Casablanca or Casa as the city is referred to locally is now a sprawling, progressive city and the country’s economic capital. The city is famous for its art deco and neo-Moorish architecture and the spectacular Hassan II Mosque. Rabat, Morocco’s political capital, moves at a gentler pace and is a wonderful mix of crumbling Roman ruins, ancient Andalusian kasbahs and colonial architecture.
    Desert Towns
    Merzouga sits on the edges of the Sahara Desert looking out towards the orange coloured sand dunes of Erg Chebbi. A sunset camel ride and a night in a desert camp is a great way to appreciate the area. Erfoud has an authentic and untouristic souk where you can haggle for local dates. It is the gateway to historic Rissani and the ruins of Sijilmassa which were once important towns on the trans Saharan trade routes.
    Chefchaouen
    Surrounded by the stunning Rif Mountains, Chefchaouen or Chaouen as it is referred to by locals, is a delightful town full of charm and hospitality. Famous for its striking blue buildings and inhabited by the descendants of Moorish exiles, Berber tribesmen, Muslims and Jews, Chefchaoen is friendly, unhurried and one of the prettiest towns in Morocco. A photographer’s dream.
