Good Beaches In Morocco?

The Beach In Tangier, Morocco

Morocco is not known for their beaches, however they do have beaches which will exceed your expectations. The beach in Tangier, although located near a port, was actually better than expected. Not world class, but better than you’d expect, and better than people may tell you. Head further south to Agadir and you’ll find a beach which is quite nice, and has waves you can surf. If you’re coming from Spain, don’t expect the same type of beach culture you’ve grown accustomed to. You won’t find any scantily clad sunbathers, or vendors walking the beach selling “La cerveza, la fanta, y el agua”; Morocco is a Muslim country with Muslim beaches. What you will find is sun, sand, and warm waters.

If you love the beach and find yourself in Tangier, try the beach of Asilah. You can get there by cab if you have money; for about $50 a driver will take you there, wait for the day, and take you home. It should be about an hour ride for the 45km drive. If you’re on a budget just take the bus, or you can try for a shared cab out of the bus station.

If you have more time, and/or are staying in Marrakech, you need to visit the city and beach of Agadir.
