Few holiday destinations are as captivating as Morocco. This magical country in the north-western corner of Africa is blessed with desertscapes, majestic mountain ranges, and sweeping Atlantic beaches. Add to that mesmerising Islamic architectural masterworks, fascinating ruins of ancient civilisations, a myriad of cultures and famous cuisine, and you have enchanting experiences for all.
The jewel of Morocco is Marrakech. Located in the shadow of the Atlas Mountains, this grand imperial city has captured the imagination of all who have entered with its labyrinthine UNESCO World Heritage site Jemaa el-Fnaa medina, grand riads, and iconic skyline of minarets of mosques.
Then there’s Fez and the often-overlooked Meknes, two of the best-preserved medieval cities in the Islamic world – both are UNESCO World Heritage sites. The cosmopolitan Casablanca carries a different charm, being home to Bogard-inspired gin bars and Art Deco and Moorish buildings. Even the capital, Rabat, offers an extraordinary wealth for its visitors with its Andalucían feel and evocative oceanfront kasbah.
But cities tell only a fraction of Morocco’s story. Head to the beaches of the Atlantic coast where you’ll find chilled-out enclaves like Essaouira that are custodians to long sweeps of golden sands. Travel through the enigmatic deserts of the Sahara to experience a slice of the blue-robed Berbers’ way of life. In the central interior of the country, North Africa’s highest mountains offer memorable opportunities for adventure and exploration.
