Highlights of the Atlantic coast
The lunar-like landscapes and the dramatic Atlas mountains, coupled with the sandy coastline and blue seas, make the Atlantic coast a very popular destination. Your Atlantic coast holidays would not be complete without stopping off at some of the places on your way. Agadir is the number one tourist destination in Morocco and a major port town, while Casablanca, made famous by the film of the same name, is well known for its idyllic beaches and mixture of Moroccan and European culture.
The Moroccan capital of Rabat is often overlooked for the country's busiest and most bustling city, Marrakech. However, this modern metropolis is home to a million residents and has a well-preserved history including its picturesque Kasbah and the Mausoleum of Mohammed V. Also not to be missed is Razwa, much beloved by artists for its mellow vibe and old rural Berber traditions. With its donkey carts and windy beach, Essaouria, a musical town famous for its arts and crafts, is a perfect spot for kitesurfing and windsurfing.
