Looking for a holiday with a difference? A trip which really does offer something for everyone – from families to history buffs to party goers? Very few countries rival the north western African paradise of Morocco. Steeped in both history and culture, holidays to Morocco will relax you in an impressive variety of beach and coastal resorts, with plentiful of shopping outlets to pick up those souvenirs.
Bordering the Mediterranean Sea to the north and the Atlantic sea to the west, a holiday to Morocco offers plenty of options for families, couples and lone travelers alike. The Atlantic resort of Agadir is especially versatile, offering an all-year round mild climate and European-style. More fascinating for history buffs, will be the ancient western coastal town of Essaouira. Here, holiday goers can take a camel ride, while couples can indulge in a romantic stroll across the bays.
Essaouira is only the tip of the iceberg when it comes to historical spectacles in Morocco. The city of Tangier, hosts the beautiful and imposing Dar el Makhzen, a seventeenth century former Sultan residence. Alternatively, gaze in awe at all the lavish architecture in that ever-popular attraction, the Saadian Tombs. This is known as the final resting place for over sixty members of the Saadi dynasty, royal rulers of Morocco in the sixteenth and seventeenth centuries.
Party goers looking to dance the night away will find a lively nightlife in the “Red City” of Marrakech, offering an intoxicating mix of Western and Moroccan music. You can also head to the city’s Medina square, Djemaa el Fna, where snake charmers and belly dancers regularly perform. When you’re ready for a quieter atmosphere, take the convenient rail trip north to Casablanca, where you can dine in one of the dainty restaurants.
From the lively atmosphere of Marrakech’s night clubs to the more solemn mood of Tangier’s Sultan palace and relaxing beaches of Agadir, Morocco really does offer something for everyone. Families and children can look forward to riding camels and dining in Casablanca’s restaurants, while livewires can embrace the exhilarating nightlife of Marrakech. Morocco holidays offer an exotic getaway to the sun and a fantastic opportunity to experience some ancient culture and history to make for a memorable holiday in the sun.
