Honeymoon in Morocco:
Morocco is so exciting for a honeymoon precisely because it is a country of contrasts. Picture-book sand dunes have been created by the Sahara, lush green plains, on the other hand, hardly suggest being near the desert, the coasts are adorned with dreamy bathing beaches, the cities exude the magic of the Arabian Nights – all against the backdrop of snow-capped mountain peaks.
If the honeymoon goes to Morocco, you will certainly be seduced first by the long beaches. 1835 km of fine sand spreads along the coasts of the Atlantic and the Mediterranean. Sometimes surrounded by steep cliffs, sometimes shallow slopes, sometimes with lonely, picturesque bays. In any case, the picture is varied and enchanting.
Sun-seeking honeymooners will find in Morocco all year round a beautiful place for a beach vacation at the highest level of well-being or a romantic spot for undisturbed togetherness. Popular and very romantic for couples is the beach near El Jadida. There is also dreamlike soft sand near Agadir, Essaouira, Rabat, and between Centa and Tetouan, whereby the coastal section near Qualidia is one of the most fabulous in the whole country. Honeymooners in Morocco will quickly forget the stress of the previous days.
Sports & Recreation:
The beach vacation can be perfectly rounded off with a leisurely sailing trip in the Mediterranean. Or how about a fast ride on the waves? The coast between Agadir and Essaouira is one of the best surfing areas in the world. There are schools everywhere offering courses for beginners and professionals.
Southern Morocco can no longer score with beach resorts or water sports, but convinces in another, perhaps more diverse way. A honeymoon in Morocco’s south is just as recommendable as a relaxing beach vacation on the coasts. Towards the north, the appearance of the country changes every kilometer anew: the first desert, then wide date palm oases in front of the white peaks of the Atlas, and finally fertile plateaus.
The alpine-like mountain landscape of the center of the country, first and foremost the wide plateau of Marrakech, will be particularly appealing for relaxed hiking tours, while adventurous honeymooners will climb Morocco’s heights. The snow-capped peaks of the Atlas Mountains, over 4000 meters high, are a true paradise for mountaineers, climbers, and trekking enthusiasts. A beautiful route leads from Imlil to the Toubkal.
Behind the giants of the Atlas begin the foothills of the Sahara, whose exploration could hardly be more fascinating for honeymooners than on the back of a camel. Many expeditions start in Merzouga and lead through steppe-like plains to the sensuously curved, golden sand dunes of Erg Chebbi, whose sublime atmosphere is not disturbed by any sound. It is a superlative experience to slowly and carefully open up Morocco on a honeymoon, penetrating areas that can neither be reached by bus nor by car.
Morocco’s cities are also worth a visit, especially the four royal cities of Fés, Meknes, Rabat, and, of course, Marrakech, which gave the country its name. Their medinas bear witness to the former wealth of the Ottoman princes and resemble a visual sensory overload. Everywhere in the typical souks, the covered shopping streets, there is something to see or discover – and above all everything your heart desires. Open the gate to a backyard and a lush floral splendor unfolds. The alleys here are small and narrow, romantically winding and fabulously designed with mosques, riads, and Koranic schools. Magnificent palaces and fortresses tower above and offer breathtaking panoramic views of the hustle and bustle.
Morocco’s coastal cities of Tangier, the white city on the Mediterranean, and Casablanca are somewhat more modern. The latter is so famous not only because of the Hollywood production of the same name. Surrounded on three sides by water, the Hassan II Mosque is one of the few mosques that non-Muslims are allowed to enter, and it impresses with its imposing dimensions. You simply have to see it to understand how great Morocco is.
Whether a feel-good beach vacation or an adventure trip into the desert – the honeymoon in Morocco fulfills every wish.
