World Travel Tips – All about touring in Morocco
It is always good to travel to new places. If you have the time, money, and passion for travel and fun, every year you can go to some of the best tourist destinations in the world. An amazing place that you can explore anytime soon is Morocco. In general, Morocco is a very diverse Islamic nation in terms of landscape. Besides its coasts, the country has dry and barren deserts, mountains, and forested areas.
In addition, it has a cultural heritage that is very rich in European and Arab influences. Morocco is occupied mainly by Berbers and Arabs. The former are believed to be descendants of the Portuguese and Spaniards who fled the Reconquista in the Iberian Peninsula in the fourteenth century AD. Being home to one of the most popular and desirable long sandy beaches along the Atlantic coast, (Casablanca) Morocco is a great place to go with your family.
As you can already guess, water sports and wind sports are popular things to do for tourists. The most popular sport is surfing. If going surfing, just go straight to the coastal towns that have surfing spots. So you want to go to the shores of the Mediterranean Sea or the North Atlantic coast or the South Atlantic coast. To see the famous Casablanca beach, you need to go to Rabat, the country’s capital, in the North Atlantic coast. There are plenty of things to see and do here, especially for couples who want to have an unforgettable honeymoon.
In addition, be sure to visit the Atlantic coast of Tangier, which offers the cleanest and coldest waters. It is best visited in the hot months of July and August. If you can’t afford to travel in the summer, your alternative destination is the Mediterranean beaches of Tangier. If you like a coastal area bordered by mountains, make sure you take a tour of Plage Quemada, Al Hoceima. It is located in the middle of the Rif Mountains along the northern Mediterranean coast.
Although Plage Quemada is always busy and crowded, it is perfectly clean, beautiful and picturesque. There is also another beach called Asfiha, which is not recommended for swimmers or those who like to walk on the beach due to its shallow water level and dirty sticky sand. So perhaps this place is ideal for sightseeing, in particular for visiting the Spanish island.
The beaches of Agadir are located on the coast of the Atlantic Ocean in the southwestern region of the country. It is ideal for water sports lovers who can either go to the private beach areas or the long sandy areas reserved for the public. Tangier beach is obviously perfect for surfing and other water activities and you can take some basic training if you are new to this area. Surrounded by massive mountains, Tangier is one of the most attractive beaches along the Atlantic Ocean.
It is loved by tourists and locals alike, and its whitewashed houses are special landmarks too. As you progress on your trip in Morocco, remember to buy some souvenirs to take home to your friends and family. Good examples include tagines, handmade Berber carpets, pirades, argan oil, spices, and leather accessories among others.
