Visiting Azemmour in Morocco

This former Portuguese town is located on the Oum Er- Rabia River, not too far from Casablanca. Originally a shipping route, this town now offers visitors spectacular views and a selection of sights and experiences. It makes an excellent addition to your next Morocco tour!

The beach of Azemmour is probably the main attraction, drawing thousands of sun seekers to its shores every year. The beach is a long stretch of golden sand, very popular with surfers and kite surfers.

After a day in the sun you can make your way to one of the many cafés that line the beachfront for a traditional meal with stunning ocean views.

The Medina is a must when in this beautiful town. The Medina (the old town) is brimming with
history and culture, including the old Kasbah ruins. The ruins are a way to step back in time and soak up the history of the area. Make your way through the narrow streets to the souks, traditional markets, where there are a host of traditional items for sale. Have some fun bartering with a stall owner as you purchase your souvenirs for home.

Head to El Jadida, only six kilometers away, one of the most famous surf beaches in the area. Learn how to surf or just enjoy the amazing beauty of the area.

Being so popular with tourists, Azemmour has no shortage of hotels and riads to choose from, should you choose to stay overnight. Remember it is close to Casablanca, making it a perfect day trip or overnight experience away from the city.

As you make your way back to the city, you can reflect on your experiences in this riverside town, the places you saw, the experiences you enjoyed and of course, the magnificent beach where you soaked up the sun, swam in the crystal blue waters and enjoyed traditional cuisine at the café.
