Holiday resorts in Morocco
Plan an exotic adventure and visit a colourful city where old meets new. Marrakech holidays are divided into the Medina (old town) and Guéliz (new town). You can discover the thousand-year history of the Red City in the main square of the hectic Jemaa el-Fna and make you way through the winding souks.
And when the sun goes down there’s a buzzling nightlife scene to enjoy, too. Love being outdoors? It’s is just a short distance from the stunning Atlas Mountains, where you can go trekking during the summer and skiing in the winter. With so much to explore, there’s never a dull moment when you choose holidays to Marrakech. With warm sunshine throughout the seasons, it makes a glorious year-round destination.
Things to do
On holidays to Marrakech, you won’t want to miss the hustle and bustle of the traditional souks (or markets) and explore every inch of Medina. If you want to escape the noise for an hour, then you’ll find plenty of peace and quiet in the stunning Menara Gardens. If you’re looking for something completely different during the winter months, head out to a ski resort in the Atlas Mountains. Oukaimeden is only an hour’s drive from here, and offers a great selection of slopes for beginners through to some seriously challenging black runs.
What do I need to pack?
For anyone taking Marrakech holidays, sunscreen is an absolute must. When it comes to clothing, think light and airy by day and something a little warmer for the evenings. As the ‘Red City’ is relatively conservative, there are a few observations you should make. For women, it’s important to keep your shoulders and legs covered, so leave the strappy tops and tiny shorts at home. Instead, think t-shirts or light shirts and dresses, skirts and shorts that go below the knees. While headscarves aren’t required in public, you’ll need to wear one as a sign of respect if you’re visiting any sites of religious interest.
Because of the heat, comfortable shoes can be important, and you might want to protect your feet from the dust, so ‘closed’ footwear is a good idea. Sun hats are essential for the little ones.
If you’re taking gadgets with you on your holiday to Marrakech, be sure to take an adaptor plug and a portable power-bank.
More City Breaks
Experience this bustling city on the south coast of Morocco. Agadir is perhaps best known for its silky-soft sandy beach (there’s a whopping 10km of it to enjoy so you’re bound to find a spot!) and year-round sunshine. Most of the original city was destroyed in a huge earthquake in 1960, and what you see today is a modern resort that was built in its place, complete with trendy marina restaurants.
Beyond the beach you’ll still get a sense of the rich history on Agadir holidays; you’ll find the Kasbah Mosque and traditional Berber villages within easy reach. And don’t forget to pick up a souvenir at the bustling souk.
Things to do
For many visitors, holidays to Agadir are first and foremost about long, lazy days on the beach. And where better to soak up the North African sunshine than on a 10-km stretch of almond-coloured sands? It’s one of the best beaches in Morocco. When you’re ready to refuel, you can grab a bite to eat at a local stall; the freshly-barbecued fish is a must try.
If you’re looking for a livelier spot, do as the locals do and head to the Souk El-Had for a spot of shopping. Fragrant spices fill the air as you wander past mountains of plump dates. In the evenings, you can dine in one of the stylish restaurants overlooking the modern marina. Just sit back and enjoy the sunset as you sip a chilled glass of Moroccan white wine.
The beaches are Agadir’s main attractions and are said to be some of the best in Morocco. The 10km stretch of soft, golden sand runs into crystal clear waters, which have received Blue Flag status. Enjoy spending your days relaxing in the exotic weather on sun loungers and under parasols, with views of the shimmering coast. Take a refreshing break from the heat in one of the cafes and restaurants that line the palm tree fringed promenade.
History and culture
Agadir was traditionally a small fishing village, which is still rooted in its customs with a wild marine life, picturesque harbour and delicious seafood restaurants. Agadir was rebuilt after a devastating earthquake wiped out the whole city in the 1960s. The city was rebuilt a few miles south from its original place and features modern buildings, floral parks and wide grid-like streets, which are easy to navigate around than most Moroccan cities. However, the city hasn’t lost its traditional charm, with colourful souks, spas and mosques which can be explored.
Laid back nightlife
Enjoy the relaxed atmosphere in one of the many bars in Agadir. The nightlife is low key compared to the cosmopolitan Casablanca and Marrakech, but there’s enough to keep you entertained if you are after a relaxing break away. Enjoy an authentic Moroccan meal and a cocktail or two in one of the beachfront restaurants or try you luck in one of the vibrant casinos. Pay a visit to one of the bars or venues that often host live music and traditional belly dance performances.

If you prefer to soak up some traditional culture on your holiday to Tunisia, wander down to Monastir’s marina to look at the pretty boats and mingle amongst locals, or pick up a bargain at Hammamet’s Medina.
What should I pack?
Your holiday wardrobe will depend on what time of year you’re travelling and the activities you’re planning. It’s wise to check the weather forecast before you go.
During the summer, loose, cotton clothing can help keep you cool when the temperature rises. Dressing conservatively is also advised (Tunisia is a Muslim country). For example, women shouldn’t wear mini-skirts, and a headscarf must be worn when visiting a mosque, while men should avoid shorts and vest tops when visiting religious sites.
Even though it’s hot during the day, it’s worth packing something a little warmer to wear in the evening; in certain parts of Tunisia, temperatures can actually fall below 0°C when the sun goes down, especially in the more mountainous areas.
Planning on hiking? You’ll need hiking boots to take on those sandy deserts and rocky paths, so make sure they’re sturdy and comfortable.
Don’t forget sun cream
You can expect lots of glorious sunshine in Tunisia, so be sure to pack your sunglasses. Bring plenty of sun cream, too, as it can be very expensive to buy when you’re out there. A sun hat can is great for keeping the sunshine at bay, especially for the kids.
Bring mosquito repellent
Be sure to bring mosquito repellent with you, just in case you can’t find any while you’re out there. It’s always sensible to wear it in the evenings.
