Marrakech must-dos

Visit Jemaa el-Fnaa, the Medina’s bustling main square, and home to the city’s biggest souk! And don’t miss Jardin Majorelle, a huge green space dotted with cacti. You can also expect lots of hammams where you can enjoy a traditional Moroccan massage. What you won’t find here though, are beaches. Your best bet for those is around three hours away in Agadir.

A treat for all the senses

Sights, sounds, smells, tastes and textures dazzle in the city of Marrakech, where the scents of fresh mint tea and exotic spices meet to tantalise your senses. All the colours of the rainbow burst from the maze-like streets and when it comes to cuisine, a terracotta tagine filled with lamb and cous cous is a must-try!

Amazing adventures

Looking for unique ways to spend your days? Take your pick from the huge range of wonderful trips and activities that are right on your doorstep. We’re talking everything from camel rides across desert-like sands to waterfall walks across the magical mountain scenery. Come night-time, it’s all about chic dinner shows and authentic Moroccan nights of dining and dancing.

Sights

There are few sights as iconic as the world-famous Jemaa el-Fnaa – the city’s original fortified citadel. But the tombs, gardens and palaces are equally as intriguing. If you fancy heading head further afield, why not explore the majestic Atlas Mountains?
