Your guide to Morocco holidays
While many will immediately think of bustling cities and throngs of people all trying to score a bargain when they think of Morocco; in actual fact it’s chock full of peaceful landscapes for you to enjoy or maybe even try a spot of yoga. The country’s tourism sector is beginning to realise this and its becoming increasingly full of yoga retreats full of travellers all trying to reach a higher plain or simply just relax. With some of the most idyllic locations on the planet to lay your yoga mat, you’ll be in heaven if you’re a fan of the craze. Another popular activity you could partake in is visiting one of the local hammams; traditional steamed baths that are quite similar to Turkish baths. Drift away and forget the worries of modern life as you discover the meaning of true comfort...if only for a while. If you really want a taste of the high life on your travels, you could also opt for a massage or scrub, for that extra sense of rejuvenation.
Bordered on one side by the shimmering Atlantic Ocean to the West and the warm waters of the Mediterranean to the North, Morocco has an abundance of beaches for you to explore. The entire country is incredibly popular during the summer with many locals that live abroad also returning home to hit the beach. For this reason, it can be tough to secure accommodation during the summer (never mind a spot on the beach); so you might be better off exploring this sandy sun-blessed paradise during the off-season while many of the best beaches are untouched and ready to be discovered. Somewhat underrated when it comes to Moroccan beaches, the quaint town of Saidia sits perched alongside the Mediterranean coast and holds a plethora of sandy stretches for you to sink your teeth into. The town is somewhat popular with locals during the summer months but you’ll still find it’s quieter than many of the more popular beach resorts. With the iconic Kasbah also situated just behind the town’s main beach, you can also soak up some culture along with the sun’s rays!
