Every visitor to Morocco knows the cities of Marrakesh, Agadir, Rabat, Tangier, Fez, and even Ouarzazate, but this country, which has a fascinating geographical location, embraces dozens of other places worth visiting. As it is said, “from every art is a part,” Morocco has a share of every natural color, between the beaches and the green areas. In deserts, valleys, mountains, and lakes, Morocco offers an example of a natural rest area decorated with a sun that rarely hides from the Kingdom’s rivers.

In this report, we present to you 10 tourist areas in Morocco that have not received their share of promotion. We have taken into account the geographical distribution in the country, as well as the nature of the region and the type of terrain prevailing in it:

The city of Safi: more than ceramics and sardines. Starting from Casablanca, a national road passes through the city of El Jadida. This city is famous among Moroccans for two things: making ceramic figures and sardine fish dishes. However, Safi is much larger than that, as it contains historical monuments dating back to the Phoenician era, and a number of its buildings still bear the splendor of Portuguese colonialism, in addition to its old city, which has a beautiful Moroccan character, in addition to its availability of beautiful beaches that tempt swimming, especially Lalla Fatna Beach and Lalla Fatna Beach. Old Suwayria.

Sidi Ifni, the Jewel of the South: This city remained colonized by Spain until the Ait Baamrane tribes were able to achieve independence in 1969, so the Spanish character is still present in this small city in southern Morocco. A quiet, clean city that provides the visitor with the opportunity to rest away from the hustle and bustle of major cities, especially in its small hotels and cafes overlooking the sea.

However, the magic of Sidi Ifni does not stop here, as it has two of the most beautiful beaches in Morocco: Mirleft, which is about 37 kilometers away, and Lakzira, which is 20 kilometers away. On this second beach, there is an inspiring landscape that reflects the sea blending with the mountain, forming an arc that is very rare to see in other regions of the world.

Oued Lao is a retreat in the heart of the Mediterranean: a small city in northern Morocco, between Tetouan and Chefchaouen. Beach lovers can enjoy the charm of a coast that tempts them to summer and spend days in the waters of the Mediterranean. This city also provides visitors with the opportunity for a quiet tour on the “Corniche”, where they can eat Mediterranean fish dishes, and from there they can set off to discover the city of Tetouan (47 km) with its unique character. The unique Andalusian, or the city of Chefchaouen (56 km) with its distinctive blue alleys.

The Todgha Gorges is a unique rock painting: In the south-east of Morocco, about 14 km from the city of Tinghir, a unique natural painting is formed, with rocky mountains interspersed with a valley and water courses that cool off the heat of the region. The Todghi Fjords provide an outlet for those escaping the noise of cities, and a wonderful opportunity for mountain climbers, as you can meet many pioneers of this sport coming from several foreign countries. The beauty of these fjords is increased by their proximity to the Tinghir oases, where there are magnificent almond trees and ancient Berber kasbahs.

Imouzzar Kandar Waterfalls that wash away the heat: 45 km south of Fez, there is a small town lying at the foot of the Middle Atlas Mountains, where snow during the winter creates uniquely splendid natural scenes, and where there are waterfalls that provide a special rest for the visitor, such as the “Ola Wishou” waterfall and the “Ain Sultan” waterfall. Here, the coolness of the water flirts with the mystery of caves that contain secrets about the place, and the depth of the place blends more with the shades of fig and oak trees. It is also possible to discover a suburb close to Imouzzer, which is the Awa District (15 km).

Taza is a link between the Atlas and the Rif: East of Morocco, there is a unique region that contains a special geographical diversity, which is the Taza region, which combines the beauty of the Atlas with the depth of the countryside. During the winter, you will find in the Puebloan Mountains an area for skiing and listening to the heavy snow falling, and in the region’s caves you will find exceptional opportunities to discover areas that the sun does not enter, especially the Friwato Cave, which is more than 350 meters deep, without forgetting the region’s waterfalls such as Ras El Ma, and the Bab Boudir Natural Park. In addition to the facilities inside the city, such as the Grand Mosque and Bab al-Juma Gardens.

Al Hoceima or the beaches of the Mediterranean: Al Hoceima, the homeland of the resistance fighter Mohamed Ibn Abdel Karim Al Khattabi, in northern Morocco, has all the elements that make it compete with the most famous tourist cities in Morocco. Its many beaches give tourists moments of relaxation in the waters of the Mediterranean, including Buskor Beach, the destination that the Moroccan king constantly chooses. This rural region also includes a park containing rare marine creatures, and historical monuments, including the castles of Emerzon, Al-Tauris, and Asando, and near the city’s port, you can eat delicious Mediterranean fish meals.

M’hamid El Ghizlane The breathtaking depth of the desert: Deep in the Moroccan sands in the south-east, and near the border with Algeria, stands the city of Mhamid El Ghizlane, the home of nomads and the heart of tales of the fragrant expanse of the desert. The former gold trade corridor has now become a space for those wishing to admire the dunes and learn about the culture of the nomads and Tuareg. Its harsh heat does not prevent the influx of some tourists from time to time, especially adventurers who enjoy rare natural views, including the sunset at the most remote Moroccan point in this region.

Bin El-Ouidane Vegetables and water: In the Middle Atlas, a village possesses a unique charm. Picturesque greenery and a generous lake have created for the people of the Izilal province a tourist area that they can be proud of. Near the village of Bain El Ouidane, there is a dam bearing the same name, considered among the largest in Africa. Near it is the Asaka River, which provides several types of fish to a landlocked area. Here you can listen to Moroccan tagines under the trees, and what increases the temptation of Bain Ouidane is its proximity to the Ouzoud Waterfalls ( 54 km), the most famous waterfall in Morocco, in addition to its proximity to mountain tourism stations.
