Probably you will think of the sun, the sea and the beach when you’re thinking of Morocco. Morocco offers often wonderful weather and therefore it’s a great destination when you’re looking for a sunny beach trip. Morocco, however, has more to offer. Think about the Atlas Mountains, beautiful mosques and traditional mountain villages. I had the opportunity to bring a short visit to this country and will share the most beautiful spots in Maracco with you.
I took a direct flight from Amsterdam to Agadir. A flight that takes about 4 hours. Agadir is one of the most popular destinations when it comes to a trip to Morocco. Choose one of the many, mainly all-inclusive resorts and enjoyment can begin. Take your snorkel gear with you because in many places you can enjoy the beautiful underwater world!
From Agadir it’s certainly worthwhile to book a day trip to the Atlas Mountains. If you’re a nature lover, you can have a wonderful day there. Walking, cycling and climbing are among the possibilities in this beautiful environment. Pay particular attention to the Argan trees that you encounter along the way. The goats climb into the trees to eat the Argan fruits.
When you’re in Morocco you can’t miss this city. You can easily enjoy a full day in Marrakech. Pay a visit to the Bahia Palace, the Koranic school and the famous Djemma El Fna square. Stroll across the square, visit the bazaar and enter one of the many grocery shops. Are you going to have lunch? Pick one of the restaurants with a roof terrace. While you enjoy a delicious meal you can see all the activities on the square.
I enjoyed staying in Morocco and would love to go back to see and experience more of the Atlas Mountains and the dessert one day.
