Morocco

In just under four hours from the United Kingdom you could be in Morocco. With sandy beaches, bustling souks and the tranquility of the mountains, there really is something for everyone. Luxury hotels, traditional riads and all inclusive resorts mean that there is a huge choice for all tastes and budgets. You can combine a visit to the bustling city of Marrakech with one of the luxury hotels in the mountains or in the desert.

Morocco is a mountainous and surprisingly green country of outstanding natural beauty, where the dazzling peaks of the Atlas give way to the silent shifting sands of the Sahara desert. Try a mule trek in the mountains or the desert, or even visit a Berber village and feel like you have stepped back hundreds of years.

Marrakech is a bustling and energetic city where you will receive a warm welcome and find lots to see and do. Essaouira lies on the coast and is famed for its relaxed atmosphere and extensive sandy beach. Morocco’s largest beach resort of Agadir enjoys over 300 days of sunshine per year, making it a popular destination for sun-seekers. For something completely different, head to the Atlas Mountains; North Africa’s largest range are renowned for their magnificent beauty and even offer snow-capped peaks in winter.

There are also various cruise options which may be of interest and it’s a great way to discover more of what Morocco has to offer. You can sail along the Atlantic coast from Tangier to Agadir, passing through the much famed Casablanca as well as the utterly charming town of Safi. Each port of call lets you explore more of this wonderful country and many facets.
