From the Atlantic Ocean to the Mediterranean Sea, Morocco’s got you covered. Along several thousand kilometers of coastline, visitors can enjoy varied landscapes and activities to help them either unwind or catch the wind. Beaches aren’t one-size fits all, so find out which is right for you at VisitMorocco. In the article, “Beaches for every taste,” this travel site gives you tips on where to go to stay active or just relax and take in the rays of the sun.

Most of the Atlantic beaches of Morocco are described as “long strips of fine sand.” This category includes beaches of Western Sahara, much of which is under Moroccan control. These beaches get hotter as you travel south. Beaches near cities are very popular, but there are spots where visitors can still enjoy unspoiled nature with fewer visitors. The Atlantic beaches of Morocco are great for swimming, sunning, and enjoying water sports. The site’s featured beach in this category is Dakhla Bay, to the south of Morocco. This beach has a consistent year-round water temperature of 25 degrees C and boasts ideal conditions for water sports, such as three kinds of surfing (board, kite, and wind), wakeboarding, and jet skiing. Fishing and diving are other popular activities. Boat rides to the lagoon and surrounding islands show the natural beauty of this soon-to-be national park. The most “unreal” feature of all is having desert sand dunes right next to the sea. The idea of camping in desert dunes and waking up to go surfing seems absolutely out of this world. For the tourist who prefers a resort, Lixus, Mazagan, Taghazout and Plage Blanche are all along the Atlantic.

The Mediterranean Moroccan beaches between Tangier and Al Hoceima are more divided. These intimate spots boast warm waters and calm seas. The contrast of small traditional fishing villages and seaside resorts really brings out the diversity of lifestyle in modern Morocco. Tamuda Bay is a new coastal resort (on the outskirts of Tétouan and Saidia) that features water sports (inland, tennis and golfing… usually resort-y stuff). Another Mediterranean Moroccan beach destination, Mediterrania-Saida features six kilometers of white sand seafront.

“To remember: Whether you are looking for sunbathing or boarding, Moroccan beaches meet all visitors’ desires.” When it comes to contrasting Moroccan landscapes, you have to see it to believe it.
