The best beaches of Morocco
Morocco is a unique destination. Beach life in Morocco offers more than just sun and sea. A short drive from Europe, Agadir, the country’s main tourist city, attracts many Europeans for simple relief from summer sun and sand, but for many other travelers, Morocco’s beaches are all about the surf. The wild and breezy beaches that line the Atlantic coast are acclaimed for their surf, and with a host of surf operators, this is a great side to take in.
Discover with us the best beaches in Morocco
1. saidia beach
Known as “the blue pearl” Saidia is one of the most popular beach areas in Morocco. Located in the eastern region, the city is famous for its spectacular 14 km of fine sandy beach, its translucent waters with always pleasant temperatures and its tourist facilities. This place is very lively during the summer and is ideal for families and other tourists who come to unwind in search of a 100% relaxing vacation.
2. Lagzira beach – Sidi ifni
Ranked as one of the most beautiful beaches in Morocco, legzira beach will charm lovers of tranquility with its spectacular golden sandy beach, surrounded by majestic cliffs pounded by the waves. But it is when the sun goes into the ocean that the beach reveals its most beautiful colors. The red ochre arches carved into the cliffs take on a maroon hue that shines under the last rays of the day. A natural spectacle you will never forget.
3. Dalia beach – Tangier
Dalia Beach is a beautiful sandy beach located in the northern part of Morocco, next to a small fishing village. It is a perfect place to spend a great day with friends or family, swimming, sunbathing, photographing the sunrise or having a picnic on the shore. After taking optical devices (binoculars or a telescope) from home, visitors to the beach have the opportunity to watch the ships pass through the Strait of Gibraltar.
4. Oualidia beach – Essaouira
Located halfway between Casablanca and Essaouira, Oualidia is a quiet and family-friendly beach area. With its long strip of fine sand stretching for about 12 km, the beach is also well known for having a deep blue circular lagoon, surrounded on both sides by a crescent of golden sand. As a family or as a couple, come and enjoy the peaceful atmosphere of the place, take a swim in its calm waters or go on a boat trip.
5. Taghazout beach – Agadir
Agadir is one of the most popular beach areas in Morocco, due in part to its large stretches of warm sand covering several kilometers. If you prefer to avoid the many tourists looking to relax on the beach in the heart of the city, head for Taghazout beach, just half an hour’s drive from Agadir. This beach is much quieter and wilder, so you can lay out your towel without fear of disturbing your neighbor. But don’t worry, there is something for everyone! If you are a surf lover, here you can enjoy the waves like a child.
6. Oued Laou beach – Tetuán
About forty kilometers from the city of Tetouan, in northern Morocco, the beach of Oued Laou is a delight for both foreign and Moroccan tourists. With its fine sand and azure blue water, the landscape will leave you speechless. In addition, there is a promenade lined with cafes and restaurants along the beach, so why not let yourself be carried away by the murmur of the waves as you walk along the beach? What we like most about this place is its authenticity and relaxing atmosphere.
7. The beaches of Nador
It is impossible to choose just one, as all the wild beaches of Nador have an undeniable charm. This small town, located in the northeast of Morocco, has a still unspoiled coastline far from the hand of man. To begin with, we recommend that you head for the Cabo de las Tres Forcas, where the road that winds along the cliffs offers an unobstructed view of the blue Mediterranean. Take out your camera to immortalize this moment!
