An exotic beach break with a twist; Morocco holidays are filled with vibrant culture, stunning landscapes, and glittering sunshine.

Holidays in Morocco

Perched on the crossroads of Africa, Europe, and the Middle East, Morocco offers a unique blend of experiences. Boasting a rich cultural heritage influenced by Berber, Arab, and French traditions, Morocco is a land where ancient traditions blend seamlessly with modern luxuries and vibrant cities give way to serene deserts and majestic mountains.

Holidays in Morocco are all about experiencing something new. From the bustling souks of Marrakech to the golden beaches of Agadir, Morocco offers a magic medley of sights, sounds, and experiences. Whether you’re an adventurer seeking the thrill of the High Atlas Mountains or looking to relax in an all-inclusive resort on the coast, we have a Morocco package holiday for everyone.

When is the best time to visit? Summers in Morocco are hot, hot, hot! With parts of the country seeing summer highs of up to 39°c, summers in Morocco are not for everyone. But the coastal cities do have sea breezes that help with the sizzling temperatures. The best time to visit Morocco is during autumn and winter when temperatures swing in the mid-20s and sightseeing, sunbathing, and souvenir hunting in souks is a lot easier.

Where is the best place to stay? With its close proximity to Europe and wide range of accommodation options, from luxurious all-inclusive resorts to budget-friendly riads, Morocco is both accessible and affordable- making it the perfect place for a bargain package break. Marrakech is a must-stay for first-time visitors looking for sun, sights, and history. Another popular resort for first-time travellers to Morocco is the coastal gem of Agadir. With six miles of stunning coast and 300 days of sunshine a year, Agadir is a favourite for good reason. Other places to stay on a holiday to Morocco include the bohemian beach chic city of Essaouira and the iconic modern metropolis Casablanca, offering a unique blend of old and new.

Explore the Enchanting City of Marrakech

Explore the Enchanting City of Marrakech

Marrakech, known as the "Red City" for its distinctive terracotta-coloured buildings, is a must-visit destination. Begin your journey at the iconic Jemaa el-Fnaa square, where snake charmers, street performers, and food vendors create a lively and captivating atmosphere. Wander through the maze-like Medina and its vibrant souks, where you can haggle for spices, textiles, and handmade crafts. Don’t miss the stunning Bahia Palace, a 19th-century masterpiece of Moroccan architecture, and the serene Majorelle Garden, once owned by Yves Saint Laurent. End your day with a relaxing hammam experience, a traditional Moroccan bath, at one of the many luxurious spas. 

Experience the Beauty of the Sahara Desert

Experience the Beauty of the Sahara Desert

No trip to Morocco is complete without experiencing the awe-inspiring Sahara Desert. Join a guided tour and venture into the golden dunes of Erg Chebbi or Erg Chigaga. Ride a camel across the vast landscape, watch the sunset over the dunes, and spend a night in a traditional Berber camp under a canopy of stars. The tranquillity and beauty of the Sahara are truly unmatched and provide a unique and unforgettable adventure. But want to know one of the best ways to see the beauty of the desert? Hop on a hot air balloon and watch in wonder as you float above the horizon in a vision of rainbow patchwork.

Revel in the Splendour of the Atlas Mountains

Hike to the stunning Setti Fatma waterfalls or simply enjoy a leisurely stroll through the valley. For a more challenging adventure, embark on a trek to Mount Toubkal, the highest peak in North Africa. The climb is demanding, but the panoramic views from the summit are worth the effort. Along the way, you’ll encounter charming villages, terraced fields, and friendly locals.

Lose yourself in its labyrinthine streets, where every corner reveals a new wonder, from centuries-old madrasas to bustling tanneries.
