Updated: Apr 27, 2020
Scheherazade is one of my favorite fictional characters. Imagine enticing your loved one with one engrossing tale after another, instead of spinning yarns night after night to play “1001 Arabian Nights”, head to Morocco. Stroll the crowded bazaar and transport to a more exotic time. All of Morocco is amazing. And, I am revealing the Most Dreamy & Romantic Cities in Morocco.
People the world over love the palm-lined streets of Agadir, it is one of the premier holiday destinations in Morocco. With over 300 days of sunshine each year, the beaches call to sun lovers. Also, Agadir is near the Atlas Mountains and the Sahara Desert. Therefore, it’s an excellent base camp for exploring Morocco.
Are you looking for a unique and cosmopolitan city to explore? Casablanca is the answer. Full of art galleries, fine dining, and breathtaking shopping, Casablanca offers something for everyone. Marvel at magnificent architecture as you wind your way through the narrow streets. Every corner brings something new to behold.
Nestled in the Rif Mountains, Chefchaouen is a secret gem. And, you need to uncover. It is known as ‘Morocco’s Blue City. Everywhere you look at the bright blue color abounds. During the day, the town glows in different shades from subtle aquamarine to vivid neon blue. If delving into local Moroccan culture is your desire, Chefchaouen is perfect for you.
High Atlas, Morocco
North Africa’s highest mountain range is the High Atlas Mountains. They cut diagonally across Morocco. Perfect for couples that love trekking, hiking, and climbing. Climb to the summit of the Toubkal (13,600 feet) is the highest peak in Morocco. Spend time in the adorable Berber villages that dot the mountainside.
Want to step in the quintessential Moroccan landscape? Head for Ouarzazate. It lies at the edge of the Sahara Desert, giving the perfect opportunity to explore. Take a trek out to the nearby villages. You will be awestruck at the Todra Gorge, which is a series of limestone canyons.
Captivating and unforgettable, the Sahara Desert is a must-see. Stay in a luxury camp in the middle of a dune, and watch the sunrise over the arid desert. Spend the evenings relaxing and star-gazing. Eating dinner by the fire, drinking hot mint tea, and dancing by starlight can add an extra touch of romance.
Tangier is the gateway to Morocco. If you are going to both Spain and Morocco, it is a perfect entry point. Tangier inspires those who love to travel. It offers gorgeous scenery, rich history, and incredible sites. Soak up the Vitamin D at the beach. People watch at the same cafes. Shop in the old quarter. Tangier is perfect for relaxing.
Want to get away from the heat and crowds? Were you obsessed with ‘Game of Thrones’? If you answered yes to either of these questions, you need to explore the quiet seaside village of Essaouira. Thread through the ancient streets of the medina. Or take in the breathtaking view of the Atlantic Ocean from the top of the city walls.
Zaouia d’lfrane, Morocco
The next city lies in the Middle Atlas Mountains. And, the name of this adorable little village means “Holy Place of Caves.” You will be stunned by the beauty and romanticism the minute you arrive. Zaouia d’Ifrane is full of Berber houses, waterfalls, lush fields, forests, and hidden caverns. And they are just waiting for you to discover them!
I love Marrakech! I can’t recommend this 1000-year-old city high enough! This stunning city sits at the foot of the Atlas Mountains and is one of the most evocative places in the world. The name conjures up images of sandstone buildings and dusty streets. Haggle in the Bazaar. I recommend staying in a family-run riad so that you can share in traditional tandoori meals. Learn to belly dance. Every corner brings new wonders to behold! Did I mention that I like Marrakech? Morocco is an incredible and romantic destination. You will discover a culture foreign to everything you know. Scheherazade was captivating that her husband fell head over heel in love with her. A trip to this marvelous country will leave you enchanted. So go marvel at these Dream & Romantic Cities in Morocco!
