The best time to visit Morocco is in April, May, September, or October.

From windsurfing on the Atlantic to the soaring gates of Old Marrakech, Morocco embodies Old-World wonder and contemporary energy. Captivating scenery stems from the rugged Atlas Mountains to the rolling sand dunes of the Sahara as culture weaves through the lanes of ancient cities and along contemporary streets.

Morocco is color magnified, and aromas intensified no matter the time of year. Your right time to visit may vary based on what you want to enjoy most, from summers in the warm waters of M’Diq to winters in the Saharan sand dunes.
