The  Atlantic Coast ... A stunning region!
 
The Atlantic Coast of Morocco runs for about 1000 miles from the Straits of Gibraltar to the Mauritanian boarder. A trip to this refreshing and beautiful coast promises to be an unforgettable experience that's rich in tradition, folklore, history and fun.  Each region, city, town and village on the Atlantic coast has its own unique story and dramatic variations of traditions and architecture. 
 
As the High Atlas meets the Atlantic between Agadir and Essaouira, you find beaches that stretch for several miles such as Tafadna and Iftane. 
 
The south Atlantic coast remains quite wild and little known. South of Agadir, you will discover the spectacular cliffs and the white beach in the former Spanish enclave of Sidi Ifni, the towns of Tifnit and Goulmine which are so tranquil and magnificent. The Southern Atlantic region is stunning, less traveled and is suitable for trail driving throughout the year.
 
Must visit Places:
 
Tangier: Tangier has been and will always remain a popular tourist destination. The city's grandeur has a lot to offer; from its palm-tree promenade and sandy beaches to the old town section and the outlying villages and resorts. The highly developed hotel infrastructure in the city is clean and well-equipped and the best beaches are found west and south of town on the Atlantic Ocean towards Asilah. A vacation in tangier is always memorable and worthwhile.
 
Asilah: A peaceful beach town south of Tangier, Asilah is a tranquil and beautiful destination offering a refuge from the nearby bustling cities. This jewel features deserted, quiet beaches and a relaxing atmosphere. Like any other northern towns in Morocco, Asilah has Mediterranean-influenced buildings, including whitewashed houses with blue accents on walls and doors and hosts several cultural activities during the summer months.
 
Rabat: This is a historic city and the present capital of Morocco, a city of trees and flowers and numerous monumental gateways including the Gate of the Ambassadors and the Oudayas Kasbah Gate.  The nearby Maamora forest and the many beautiful Atlantic beaches are popular tourist attractions during the summer. 
 
Casablanca: Casablanca is located south of the capital Rabat on the Atlantic and is famous for its cross over style of Moroccan and European culture. The sandy beaches of Casablanca stretch for several miles to the north and are beautiful and pretty much frequented by visitors and locals alike.  This city is one of two starting points for visitors flying into the country. If you have the time, both the historical medina and the contemporary Hassan II mosque (the second largest in the world) are well worth an afternoon.
 
Safi: Safi lies about 100 miles northwest of Marrakech and halfway between the two ocean ports of Casablanca and Agadir. Safi being the capital of pottery of Morocco, the best molded, glazed, imprinted and carved pottery is found here. The old medina in the center of the city is worth a visit. Here, traces of history from when the Portuguese occupied Safi can still be found. The industrial-artisan area is very interesting with its widest side facing the coast.
 
Essaouira: Essaouira is a charming, laid-back little jewel with cobblestoned streets, whitewashed walls and massive stone ramparts. Nicknamed the Artist's colony, it is a leading musical and cultural meeting point, Essaouira is a must see on your tour of Morocco.
 
Taghazout: Taghazout is a very popular fishing and surfing village situated about ten miles north of Agadir on the road to Essaouira. This little village is the perfect destination for water sport fans as its coast is sun blessed all year round. 
 
Agadir: One of Morocco's main seaports on the Atlantic Ocean. Agadir is also the country's premier beach resort and one of the most iconic destinations and home to an amazing range of sites, activities and events. Agadir is very popular for its golden sandy beaches that run for almost six miles around the edge of the city which makes it a number one destination for vacationers in Morocco. 
 
Mir Left: Located south of Agadir on the main road to Sidi Ifni, Mir Left is peaceful and a great site for camping. 
 
Sidi Ifni: Located about 100 miles south of Agadir, on the edge of the Sahara, boarding onto the Atlantic Ocean, you will find the old Spanish colonial trading post of Sidi Ifni. The collection of good fish restaurants and cafes are worth trying out if you are lucky enough to be here.
 
Dakhla: Dakhla is still unspoilt and has a constant water temperature of about 25centigrade all year round which make it the ideal place and a paradise for fishermen, divers and surfers to comfortably enjoy most water sports. Plans for this region to become a national park to protect endangered species such as monk seals is on the way.
Dakhla has also become a Mecca for 4x4 excursions and camping in the dunes; and for surfing fans, nothing is more beautiful than waking up by the sea. For the culturally oriented visitors, interacting with the desert nomads is an experience of a lifetime.
