Why go twin centre in Morocco?

Twin centre holidays in Morocco allow you to see more of the country

When you're planning a break to a country as diverse as Morocco, the only way to really see it properly is to book a twin centre holiday. This will allow you to spend some time in one of the country's amazing cities, as well as giving you a few days to chill out in the sun at the beach.

Morocco's culture really is incredible, with a diverse range of attractions in its cities. As well as the historical sites, these destinations have an amazing atmosphere, and in some of the old districts you'll feel as though you've been transported back in time.

Contrast this to the luxury hotels you'll find on Morocco's coastline; situated alongside stunning stretches of golden sand that are bathed in sunshine for much of the year, and you have the perfect blend of culture and relaxation - what more could you want from a holiday?

Top cities to explore

There are several amazing cities in Morocco, and the following are some of our suggestions if you're looking for a culture-filled start to your holiday.

Marrakech - Marrakech is at the top of many people's lists when it comes to Moroccan cities to visit, with its medina and souks among the main attractions. These offer a glimpse into traditional Moroccan life, while landmarks like the Saadian Tombs and Koutoubia Mosque are well worth exploring. Don't leave without spending some time in the Gueliz district, with its upmarket boutiques and leafy green streets.

Fez - Fez is the home of Moroccan education, boasting multiple medersas, as well as one of the world's oldest universities. The architecture of many of these is stunning, while the city is also renowned for the quality of its craftsmen. Pottery, ceramics, wooden furniture and copperware are all lovingly crafted here and you can look into the workshops, as well as buy some of the finished products.

Casablanca - Casablanca is on the coast and boasts stunning beaches, but step into its maze of streets and you'll find surprises around every corner in the old and new medinas. Also pay a visit to its port - an important symbol of its economic importance - and check out the El Hank lighthouse, which was added in the 1920s. The Hassan II Mosque and the Sidi Bou Abderrahmane Mausoleum are among the other landmarks to visit in the city.

Chill out on the beach

When it comes to Morocco's beaches, there's nowhere better to enjoy the seaside than Agadir. This coastal city experiences some 300 days of sunshine per year, making it the ideal spot to soak up the rays and stroll along the sunkissed sand of its golden beach.

There are numerous hotels and all inclusive resorts located here where you can have a fantastic stay, with all the amenities you could want for a chilled out holiday on hand. Make sure you pay a visit to the old kasbah, which, although in ruins, still provides stunning panoramic views of the bay. This is a fantastic spot to watch the sunset from, too.

As Agadir is on Morocco's Atlantic coastline, it sees some excellent swells roll in and break on the beach, making it a prime place for surfing. Whether you're new to the sport or have been catching waves for a while, you can grab a board here and have a go during your holiday in Morocco.

Other water sports that are popular in the area include jetskiing, wind and kite surfing, and sailing, while on dry land you can visit one of the many golf courses around Agadir, or go for a horseback ride along the shore or in the foothills of the nearby mountains.

Other spots to visit in Morocco

During a twin centre holiday in Morocco, it's also a possibility, and a great idea to go on some day trips to see yet more of this fascinating country. Top options include excursions into the Sahara Desert, where you can camel trek through the seemingly-endless dunes, spend the night in a Bedouin tent, and enjoy traditional Bedouin food in a really special overnight tour.

Alternatively, travel to the foothills of the High Atlas Mountains for some fantastic walking opportunities, or discover the UNESCO-listed centre of Rabat, Morocco's capital city. By choosing a twin centre holiday in Morocco, you can tailor your itinerary to suit your interests and look forward to a truly fantastic trip with a bit of everything you want included.
