Marrakech

Share

Let’s get one thing clear. Marrakech holidays aren’t all souqs and spices. Yes, you can liven up your Middle Eastern dishes with some aromatic purchases from a Moroccan gent, but your suitcase may never smell the same again. Far better to appreciate those heady scents and save your dirhams for something even Ocado’s well stocked shelves can’t provide. Adventures. Surf some of Africa’s longest waves, tee off on some very well-to-do golf courses or hike to – and gawp at – some plunging waterfalls.

Peeking out from the walls of Marrakech’s Medina will always be well rewarded. Africa’s largest cactus farm might not quite arouse your travel ardour, but the private garden of a Moroccan artist just might. And, all holidays in Marrakech demand at least a little time in Djemma el-Fna square. It’s spent ten centuries perfecting its tourist-centric schtick. It would be rude not to show a little appreciation.

Saharan summers?

Depending how you like your temperatures, one of the best times to visit Marrakech is early spring. Things are hotting up – but will rarely tip into unbearable territory. Spring blooms are blooming- but so are those pesky April showers. Autumn’s a better bet with less rain and a couple of festivals laid on.

Discover the real Marrakech

When a city sprawls, winds and dizzies as much as Marrakech, a map will be of little use. In a city slowly leaning towards more western ways, everything from dress codes to conduct and finding the hidden wonders can be confusing. Naturally, we’re on hand to help you avoid any missteps.

Despite the endless ability to shop, Marrakech holidays aren’t just about cramming your case with spices and trinkets. You’ll want to save some energy for the natural wonders. Earth’s been quietly carving out some genuinely awe-inspiring architecture. The golf courses aren’t too shabby either.

If ever there was a city for your tastebuds to get adventurous in, it’s Marrakech. Tagines are the mainstay – but don’t dismiss them as generic. After all, there’s no better place to sample them. Moroccan stews not your bag? The street food can be mouthwatering, if you know where to go.
