5 Romantic Travel Ideas in Morocco
Choosing a destination for a Romantic Trip to Morocco can be difficult given the number of options available. When there's a hint of romance in the air, things get even more tricky. Choosing a destination that offers the perfect combination of beauty and site interest is often a headache for a romantic getaway. There are few countries where to go for a romantic getaway like Morocco. Many individuals, and even couples, find dramatic scenery to be romantic enough.
Just an idea of a romantic trip that Morocco offers:
Incredible mountains, deserts, and landscapes. For couples who prefer a bustling city with a multitude of things to see and do, Morocco will still be your "shoe of vair".
For couples looking for urban bustle, Marrakech and Fez will be very good choices. The Atlas Mountains are barely an hour's drive from Marrakech. Couples will be able to escape the urban scene to enjoy natural landscapes including the dazzling sites of the Atlantic coast such as Essaouira, Oualidia, or Agadir.
The Moroccan Sahara Desert
The characteristic tranquility of the Sahara Desert often makes it a more attractive destination for a romantic getaway. Couples can stay in a camp in the middle of the desert to enjoy a peaceful and relaxing stay under the starry sky at night. Desert camps are designed for romantic moments; any distraction from electricity will be happily eliminated. The electric light is replaced by the dim light of candles and sunset. The absence of electricity and its distractions also means that there is no Wi-Fi or internet access. This will assure you of a getaway worthy of a honeymoon.
The city of Marrakech in Morocco
The city is popularly nicknamed the city of 1001 nights because Marrakech lights up to give free rein to romance. There are many romantic settings in the city such as its mysterious alleys in which to stroll, its intriguing markets to admire and shop, and opulent and lively squares such as the Place des Épices or the famous Jemaa el Fna square. All this makes this city a jewel to contemplate day and night. Romantic dinners also offer couples the opportunity to discover delicious new recipes together, a good meal always favors a good romantic moment. You can end each romantic day by staying in one of the historic palaces or the modern Riads of Marrakech.
Chefchaouen the blue city of Morocco
This village's allure begins with its natural surroundings and blue theme. All the buildings in this old Medina are painted blue. Add to that the Rif mountains hovering on the horizon, and every bend in the alleyway becomes magical. It is cooler in the evening, and warming up around a wood fire in a Riad will make you end the day gently.
The Moroccan Atlas Mountains
Small but pretty Berber villages are lined up along the mountain overlooked by the snow-capped Atlas Mountains, giving you a great vantage point. There are very few vistas as romantic as the Atlas Mountains and the small Berber villages of Morocco. Couples who appreciate the outdoors will enjoy taking a walk early in the morning on these grandiose paths. A picnic en route is always a good idea, and perhaps a mint tea to top off your efforts once the hike is over.
