Hidden Gems of Morocco


Apart from Casablanca and the four Imperial Cities of Morocco–Fez, Marrakesh, Meknes and Rabat–there are many must-see locations with fantastic hidden gems. Here is a guide to those lesser known locations to consider for your next trip.
Nestled in the Rif Mountains, Chefchaouen is a picturesque town famous for its striking blue-washed buildings. Through this town’s narrow streets, you can discover picturesque cafes, artisan workshops, and serene courtyards. Photographers, artists, and travelers alike will find immense tranquility amidst stunning natural beauty.
Tucked away on Morocco's Atlantic coast, Asilah has a unique charm with its whitewashed buildings and colorful murals. Every summer, the town comes alive during the Asilah Arts Festival, where local and international artists transform the walls into a vibrant gallery. You can explore Asilah’s hidden corners, alleyways, and secret gardens to uncover the essence of this artists’ heaven.
Essaouira is smaller than Marrakech or Fez, but it gives off a laid-back charm that captivates visitors. Narrow streets lined with artisan workshops, boutique shops, and quaint cafés fill this town. You’ll also find local handmade crafts like woodwork, vibrant textiles, and traditional Moroccan instruments to take home as souvenirs.
If you’re looking to get out of the cities, Skoura is the perfect oasis for you. Skoura is in the Draa Valley of the Sahara Desert. It’s lined with lush palm groves, ancient ruins, and Berber villages. A camel ride through the Sahara sounds like a breathtaking opportunity.
Morocco has many more hidden gems waiting to be discovered by visitors. Each of the aforementioned places provides a unique glimpse into the country's rich cultural heritage and natural beauty.
