From the stunning shores of Agadir to the colourful markets of Marrakech, Morocco holidays are an exciting cultural experience that's quite different from any other vacation destination.
Morocco is a tantalising tagine of cultures, languages, traditions and religions inherited from African, European and Arabic influences. The result is an intriguing mix, where increasingly western ways slip seamlessly in with an age-old way of life. The blend will hit home when you see men plodding past on camels whilst chatting on the latest smartphone.
Despite being just one hour south of Spain, Morocco is a whole world away from the western European culture we're so used to. It's a refreshing change of scenery, and a way of life that both intrigues and delights, especially when you're being pampered in a luxury Moroccan riad. Additionally, with a flight time of just three hours, you'll be waving goodbye to the wet weather at home and stepping out into the sizzling African sun in no time.
Lined with a 9km long beach that is the perfect chill out spot to spend a hot summers day in Morocco, Agadir is a modern resort that is packed with holiday essentials.
Just behind the golden sands there is a fresh boardwalk that is filled with restaurants, shops, cafes and bars. Hop into the Atlantic Ocean offshore and enjoy a popular surf spot that attracts riders from all over the world.
The city is home to a fun nightlife with a mix of touristy clubs at the hotels and local joints further into the town.
A large historic city in the heart of Morocco, Marrakech will entertain, enlighten and relax you within one holiday.
With plenty of luxury accommodation to choose from, you can enjoy the scorching summer sun poolside before you head out into the city and experience a distinctly Moroccan day and night.
Most of the activity and fun is found in the Djemaa el-Fna centre square as this busy area hosts snake charmers, food stalls, musicians, dancers and more.
For the days you want to take it slow, there are dozens of museums, ancient buildings and ruins to investigate.
The winters in Morocco can get mild so if it's a sunshine summer holiday that you're looking for, April to November is your best bet. Temperatures drop to an average of 14C in January and reach around 28C during the summer months.
There is virtually no rainfall during July and August but even the wet season in the winter doesn't see too many showers during the day.
If you want to see Morocco in a festive mood, visit during the month of Ramadan. Locals fast during the day and binge on the evenings while celebrating the holy month. Tourists aren't forced to fast during the day but it is generally accepted that you don't eat or drink in public places.
Essaouira has lost none of its sixties hippy charm and is a relaxed, inviting resort. The picturesque harbour has UNESCO status and some excellent fish restaurants to try.
A three hour journey from Marrakech to the middle of the Atlas Mountains, this is a refreshing oasis amongst a mostly-arid country. Dip your head under tumbling waterfalls, take a plunge into huge pools or simple admire the greenery from an overhanging café whilst sipping a mint tea.
Marrakech's most symbolic building has stood over the city since the twelfth century. The Koutoubia Mosque is a standout attraction in the city and the surrounding gardens are well manicured providing picture opportunities at every turn.
Both Agadir and Marrakech are home to a good number of fun bars and nightclubs. In Agadir, there are tourist friendly venues but if you want a truly unique experience, the popular local hangouts provide evenings unlike any other. In Marrakech, head to the huge 555 Club that even has a rooftop pool.
The Agadir beach is the perfect spot to learn, hone or master your skills as a surfer. The long shoreline offers plenty of different surf schools and hire equipment to get you out and riding the waves of the Atlantic Ocean.
