What’s the weather like in Morocco in March?
Located in North Africa with the Sahara Desert in the south, Morocco has warm weather in general during March. Temperatures are rising in spring, and you’ll get lots of sun and not much rain if you’re going to one of the country’s popular beach destinations at this time.
Morocco’s geography means there’s different weather around the country, with coastal spots mainly having Mediterranean conditions. The North Atlantic coast’s cooled by the Canary Current, and this is where you’ll find popular Agadir. The Sahara gives the south high temperatures, although it gets really cold at night, while inland areas including Marrakech also have hot weather; this is partly down to there being no nearby sea.
The typical high temperature in Agadir during March is 21ºC, although this falls to 11ºC at night so bring some warmer clothes for the evenings. Sea temperatures are around 17ºC, while humidity’s low. Average rainfall’s 25mm over four rainy days, and you can look forward to 12 hours of daylight with eight hours of sunshine each day. UV levels will be high so don’t forget the sun cream, and sunset’s around 6.40pm at the start of March. This is closer to 8pm by the end of the month due to the start of daylight saving.
Things to Do
As temperatures rise Morocco’s beaches get busier, although the cooler weather’s great for sightseeing. Head to Agadir’s markets or check out Marrakech’s medina if you’re in that part of the country. You can head into the desert from lots of places in the country, while west coast resorts use Atlantic winds for great windsurfing and water sports.
