More should be mentioned about the beautiful beaches that are usually less frequented than those in the states, with long white sandy shores that stretch for miles, and some places have high rolling waves that are great for those that wish to try surfing on the Med. Taghazout Beach is where the first hippies would come in the late sixties, and it is one of the finest surfing areas along the coast.

It showcases carpets, numerous traditional 19th century Moroccan relics and costumes.

One thing that you will love doing here and that is eating at the many Moroccan or French Moroccan restaurants with a superb cuisine that is like no other on earth, and be sure to check out the ones that don't specifically cater to tourists, so you can taste the real and authentic cuisine that has made this region famous for years.
