So you’re looking to honeymoon in Morocco? From the hustle and bustle of Marrakech to the grand Atlas Mountains, you can be sure to have a honeymoon to remember.
Welcome to the exotic city of Marrakech! Multi-coloured tiles cover the walls and floors and souks overflow with scents and spices. Chefs and fashion designers are in their element when they visit this place. The botanical Majorelle Garden is nestled in the valley, originally owned by Yves Saint Laurent, whilst there are some spectacular hotels here to make the most of your stay.
2. Atlas Mountains
An hours drive from Marrakech, you’ll find a calming escape from the city commotion; the Atlas Mountains. Beautiful scenery and places to explore, with towns and villages aplenty. The locals are really welcoming, just make sure you wear a more conservative outfit when visiting as its a very traditional area with strict customs.
Essaouira is a firm favourite for those looking to enjoy some sunshine on the Moroccan coast. Three hours from Marrakech and a great place for a spot of shopping, visitors can easily spend a couple of days in the area. The colourful streets are lined with market stalls and friendly vendors, whilst the beach offers some great water sports such as wind and kite-surfing. There are art galleries and golf courses in Essaouira, plus opportunities for camel-riding – plenty to experience.
If you were still undecided, let me tell you that Morocco is renowned for its year-round sunshine, with July and August reaching up to 38°C!
Make sure you pack that suncream!
