A Complete Guide to Morocco’s Weather

Marrakech has just been named the world’s best destination by Trip Advisor and we know why. From the golden sands in Agadir to the busy souks in Marrakech, cheap Morocco holidays have been hitting the spot for tourists for many years now.

With so many different types of durations available, you can opt for anything from a quick two night break to a 14 nights stay. Or, how about a twin center, combining the city vibes of holidays to Marrakech with a chilled out beach stay in Agadir.

So what is the weather like in Morocco?

Although cooler in the winter months, Morocco is a year round destination. Agadir has a Mediterranean climate whereas Marrakech sits in the centre of Morocco and has more of a subtropical warmer climate. If you prefer to spend your time chilling round the pool we would recommend travelling in the warmer months. However if you don’t want the crazy heat to stop you getting out and about sightseeing and checking out all what Morocco has to offer, then we would recommend travelling in the winter months.
