Morocco's Top 5 - Number 5 - The beach in Agadir
There's a very family friendly beach in Agadir. Most of the hotels face onto the 10km's of beach and they own pockets of it but genearlly the beach is free. Agadir gets 300 days of sunshine a year which isn’t too bad at all!
Number 4 - Marrakesh souk
The Souk is found in the Old Town area in the heart of the city. It sells everything from fresh fruit to ceramics to spices. It’s especially recommended shopping for carpets, Argan oil, glass tea light holders, metal trays and lanterns. One great tip – never, ever pay first price – it’s expected that you haggle! It’s a shoppers dream and highly recommended by you.
Number 3 - Hammam
You suggested that the Hammam - a traditional Moroccan scrub and massage which completely exfoliates your skin, is a must do in Marrakesh. Thirty minutes cost €23.
Number 2 - Majorelle Gardens
Majorelle Gardens is one of most visited tourist attractions in Marrakesh. Yves Saint Laurent fell in love with the place and made it his home and is buried here after his death in 2008. The gardens are full of exotic plants and are famous for its cacti collection displayed beautifully against the vivid cobalt blue buildings.
Number 1 - Djemaa El Fna
You recommended that we didn’t miss Djemaa El Fna. The square is really busy and noisy but hugely entertaining and comes alive at dusk. It's full with street entertainers, snake charmers, musicians, henna artists and a multitude of stalls selling all manner of food, from snails to sheep brains!
