The desert country of Morocco also attracts tourists with its endlessly beautiful beaches and warm water. It’s the perfect place to combine adventures such as camel rides through the Sahara dunes, hiking in the high mountains, exploring the culture and relaxing on the beach. Walk on fine sand, swim in the sea, surf, sunbathe or collect beautiful shells….. Here is our guide to the most beautiful beaches in Morocco:
The coast of Essaouira is a popular destination for residents of Casablanca, home to some of the most beautiful beaches in North Africa. These endless sandy beaches attract many tourists during the warm season. Many go there for water sports, especially surfing, because the sea waves here are particularly beautiful.
Oulidia, another place near Casablanca, is particularly prized for its calm waters. The Atlantic hits the Moroccan coast hard. But at Oulidia, you can swim in a lagoon protected from the waves by a natural rock barrier. You’ll find an exceptional setting with beautiful yellow beaches, coastal restaurants serving the best fish and seafood in the country, boat rides around the lagoon to observe the local fauna, or even surfing lessons on the lagoon’s small, calm waves. On the other side of the lagoon, fishermen set sail to brave the big waves-an impressive sight.
Camel trekking is one of our activities
Although Legzira is not always comfortable to swim in because of the strong waves, it’s a great place for surfing and romantic strolls at the end of the day. Surrounded by high sheer cliffs, Legzira Beach offers a spectacular sight with its golden sand. The waves have carved arches in the rocks, reminiscent of Normandy landscapes, but with ochre and red flowers: a real beauty!
Agadir is one of the most popular destinations for Moroccans. The beach of Agadir is located near the big cities on the Atlantic Ocean and offers you the opportunity to relax with your family in peace and tranquility, as the waves here are not as strong. The beach gets record amounts of sunshine and is protected from the wind, making it very pleasant. However, it can get very crowded during high season!
If you want to enjoy the warm and relaxing Mediterranean, there is nothing better than the coastal town of Al Hoceima. The most famous beach is Quemado, located right on a large cliff that cuts through the waves and offers a turquoise paradise for bathers. Of course, it is not a wild beach, which is very popular with tourists. It is surrounded by large hotels and water sports centers.
Dalia Beach is located near the city of Tangier and is a popular resort among locals. With its white sand and clear water, it attracts many families on summer weekends. You can also admire the fishermen’s boats and their outings into the sea.
If you want to relax away from the tourist crowds, Nador is one of the most beautiful places in Morocco. This natural region in northeastern Morocco is practically uninhabited, which makes tourists very happy. Completely wild beaches surrounded by high cliffs, small hidden coves and turquoise Mediterranean water are a true summer paradise.
This is certainly one of the most beautiful places in Morocco. Dragon Island, located in the southwest of the country between the Sahara and the sea, is a small uninhabited island where few tourists wander. Take a sailboat or boat to reach it from the mainland and enjoy the wild beaches, dunes in the middle of the endless ocean and incomparable tranquility.
Saidia is probably the most famous beach in North Africa. At 14 kilometers long, it is the longest in Morocco and attracts many local and foreign tourists with its fine sand and facilities. In the north of Morocco, on the shores of the Mediterranean Sea is the most beautiful seaside resorts. Not for nothing it is called the “blue pearl.
If Saidia is the largest urban beach in Morocco, Guelmin is certainly the longest de facto beach in the country. This wild beach stretches for almost 40 km and stands out for its white sand. It is located between the sea and desert dunes, with mountains rising in the background: an ideal place for relaxation or adventure, such as quad biking. The Spanish shipbuilders have nicknamed it the “white beach” and you will soon see why.
