Top Morocco Hotels
Morocco's wonderful weather makes it a year-round premier holiday destination. The climate is Mediterranean, so whatever time of year you visit you can expect wonderful temperatures. Sun-seekers should definitely consider heading out in the peak times of June to August when temperatures reach an average of 28 to 30 degrees Celsius.
Pack plenty of sunscreen for your Morocco holidays, as temperatures can get even higher if you're visiting the mountainous areas of the country. If this sounds a little hot for you though, then visiting Morocco any time outside of the peak months will still provide you with a tan, but temperatures will stay at a more comfortable average of 22 to 25 degrees Celsius.
A Morocco holiday is perfect for landscape lovers as its multiple terrains make for hugely varied views. In the most well known cities of Rabat and Marrakech, expect bustling streets with wonderfully elaborate and detailed constructions, while a couple of hours outside of Marrakech, the Atlas Mountains run from the south west of the country to the north east, and can be seen with toppings of snow at certain times of year. A portion of the country's south east is in the Sahara Desert, which though bare and sparsely populated, are sure to provide amazing photo opportunities.
Things To Do on Morocco Holidays
Holidays in Morocco provide you with a wealth of wonderful things to see and do. Once (and if) you've had your fill of lounging on beautiful beaches all day you might want to take a trip to the Museum of Moroccan Arts in Place de le Kasbah or the Archaelogical Museum in Ben Hussaien to sample the wonderful arts and architectural gems of the country.
If you fancy something challenging, why not try trekking? Not only does trekking in Morocco provide a fantastic opportunity to enjoy the scenery, but you'll also be able to visit the mountain Berber tribes and be privy to their simplistic lifestyle, which remains unaffected by other civilations for generations upon generations. After that, why not give hot air ballooning a try! Head to the Western High Atlas plains near Marrakech to take your Morocco holiday to fantastic new heights!
Morocco enjoys a history stretching way back to around 800 AD, and has seen many important events, including control by the Roman empire which declined in the 5th Century. The Portuguese then invaded in the 15th Century, while many Moroccans served for the French army in World Wars one and two.
Morocco enjoys a hugely packed events calendar, meaning that whatever time you visit there will be dozens of things to enjoy. In the larger cities like Marrakech you can expect lots of market days selling food and crafts, while the L'Boulevard Music Festival takes place in Casablanca on the 19th of June - a must for those enjoy dancing. On the 21st meanwhile Marrakech hosts its annual X'Trail Morocco, with runners heading up the High Atlas Mountains as part of a race covering 50 kilometres!
After that there's the Imilchil Festival festival in August, a harvest carnival that traditionally sees young people search for marriage partners. To take part in the country's religious festivals, the end of Ramadan will be marked this year on the 1st of September. It's a hugely important cultural celebration, and one that will make your holiday in Morocco that bit extra special!
Because Morocco is an Islamic country, alcohol can be a bit difficult to come across outside of your hotel or resort, so we'd advise anyone looking for a clubbing holiday to look elsewhere!
The larger cities Marrakech, and the capital of Rabat, offer a host of brilliant restaurants that will allow you to sample fantastic cuisine and music, while you can dance at the popular nightclub Paradise at the Hotel Pullman in Mansour Edhabi.
