Expert travel guides and holiday advice

Situated in the Maghreb region of north Africa, Morocco borders the Mediterranean Sea and North Atlantic Ocean. Geographically hugely diverse, home to the Atlas mountains and the Sahara desert, Morocco offers travellers a wealth of activities and sights.

In addition to the bustling cities of Marrakech, Fes, Tangier and Casablanca, Morocco has cemented itself as one of the world’s best surfing destinations. Given its location and weather conditions, its beaches are suitable for both beginner and advanced surfers.

Whether you’re looking for surf camps, mountain hikes or city breaks, our travel experts have curated guides to help you get the most out of your trip to Morocco.


An assault on the senses, Marrakech is busy, loud and chaotic, in just the right way. Dating back around 1,000 years, there’s abundant history and culture to explore, with evidence of the city’s various ruling dynasties, plus the influence of colonial France, at every turn.

Various public figures and celebrities have called the city home over the years, from Winston Churchill to Yves Saint Laurent. So enamoured was the French fashion designer with the place in fact, that he bought the beautiful walled Jardin Majorelle to save it from development, moving into the villa built by its founder. The 9,000 m2 gardens, home to a wide variety of birds, cacti and the odd tortoise, are now a popular site for tourists to visit.

Of course, a trip to Marrakech wouldn’t be complete without a trip to the souks, traditional marketplaces where you can find everything from spices and leather shoes to Berber rugs, ottomans and fresh mint tea.


Nestled between the Mediterranean and the Atlantic Ocean, Tangier is a unique and picturesque coastal city in Morocco’s northwest. The medina is perched atop a limestone hill and built around the sultan’s former palace, which is now an art museum.

Owing to its geographical location, the port town, known as the gateway to Africa, is very well connected including its own international airport. It also has an eclectic blend of cultures, previously being under the governance of various other nations.


The chief port city of Morocco, Casablanca offers glorious beaches, striking architecture and a slightly more laid-back atmosphere than the likes of Marrakesh and Tangier. It’s in Casablanca that much of the nation’s wealth is made and businesses are set up. You can also enjoy the waves and go surfing, or explore the places that inspired the 1942 movie.
