Morocco’s Top Beautiful Natural Sites

Updated on April 16, 2016

Through its geographical position in the Mediterranean basin, the Kingdom, thanks to its rich nature and diverse landscapes, always makes it to the lists of famous countries that appear regularly in the world’s best tourist destinations.

Marrakech city

Marrakech is a fantastic city, it is also a symbol of Morocco. The streets of the old city of Marrakech have been too narrow to allow cars, and tourists searching for the "real" Morocco have turned the medieval structures of Marrakech into good business.

The number of tourists that come to Marrakech all the year have still not managed to change its character. Actually their high number contributes in a positive way to preserve one of the greatest monuments of Morocco. And the people of Marrakech love their city even more.

Akchour Waterfalls

A little paradise on earth located 30 kilometers from the city of Chefchaoun in the valley of Talembote, the waterfall of Akchour is a pristine natural beauty and offers guarantee an amazing scenery.

Akchour is an uplifting cascade, attracting more and more tourists since the opening of the natural park of Talassemtane.

The dam of Bin el Ouidane

The dam of Bin el Ouidane is located in the province of Azilal, designed by engineer André Coyne.

Merzouga

Merzouga is a small village in southeastern Morocco, about 35 kilometres southeast of Rissani, about 55 kilometers from Erfoud, and about 50 kilometers from the Algerian border.The village is known for its proximity to Erg Chebbi, a Saharan erg, and it is for this reason a part of the itineraries of many tourists visiting Morocco. Merzouga has the largest natural underground body of water in Morocco.

Toubkal

Toubkal or Tubkal is a mountain peak in southwestern Morocco, located in the Toubkal National Park. At 4,167 metres (13,671 ft), it is the highest peak in the Atlas Mountains and in North Africa. It is an ultra prominent peak located 63 km south of the city of Marrakesh, and is a popular destination for climbers.

Ait Bougemaz valley

Within Morocco is a hidden kingdom known as AitBougmez. Its sheer beauty will have you wishing to come back after your Morocco vacation is said and done. AitBougmez was largely unexplored by anyone other than the Berbers who live in the village towns before this century. It was not until 2001 that the AitBougmez region got its first road; one that could remain open all year round. Up until then, the road could be closed for months at a time due to the harsh snowy winters.

Chefchaouen

Chefchaouen or Chaouenis a city in northwest Morocco. It is the chief town of the province of the same name, and is noted for its buildings in shades of blue.It’s all blue. In every direction, there’s just more blue. Dark blue, light blue. Vibrant blue, dull blue. Blue, blue, blue, blue.

It’s what draws visitors here to Chefchaouen in the first place. And once here, it draws you in further, until you feel like you’re in a magical frozen or underwater world.

Tafraout

Tafraoutis a town in Tiznit Province, Souss-Massa region, Morocco, in the central part of the Anti-Atlas mountains.

The mountains around Tafraoute is the main attraction. They seem to avoid gravitation, as if they were held up by their sparkling colours alone. Everything is different here, people are less friendly than in most places in Morocco, but the rest stand out with excellence.

Having a car in and around Tafraoute, is essential. Most of the things here can be reached by foot, but if you don’t have more than a couple of days, driving saves you from walks that aren’t that great after all.

Belgian artist Jean Verame painted in 1984 rocks in blue (!) colour, in an area some kilometres away from the centre. But today its faded, and disappointing compared to has been done in the mountains of Tibesti in Tchad. So stick to nature it self, and two days are minimum when you're in Tafraoute.

Todgha Gorge

Todgha Gorge is a canyon in the eastern part of the High Atlas Mountains in Morocco, near the town of Tinerhir. Both the Todgha and neighbouring Dades Rivers have carved out cliff-sided canyons on their final 40 kilometres through the mountains. The last 600 metres (1,969 ft) of the Todgha gorge are the most spectacular. Here the canyon narrows to a flat stony track, in places as little as 10 metres (33 ft) wide, with sheer and smooth rock walls up to 160 metres (525 ft) high on each side.

Ouzoud Waterfalls

Ouzoud Waterfalls (French: Cascades d'Ouzoud) (110 m high) are located near the Grand Atlas village of Tanaghmeilt, in the province of Azilal, 150 km northeast of Marrakech, in Morocco.

Ouzoud means "the act of grinding grain" in Berber. This seems to be confirmed by the frequent mills

Legzira Beach

In between Mirleft and Sidi Ifni can be found Morocco's most unique beach. Like its other Atlantic counterparts, the 8 km-long stretch of Legzira Beach is windy, rocky, and expansive. What sets Legzira apart, however, are its two mammoth stone arches. Naturally formed after years of erosion, these sedimentary giants jut out into the perpetually crashing waves and are accessible during low-tide.

      I've always thought that Morocco is a blessed land with some kind of magical charm. The only country in the world where you can find the beaches, valleys, cuts, snowy mountains and the desert in a 200 circle area;, plus a 3000 km long beach shore. The social mixture is also as rich as the landscape, if not richer. Moroccans and their guests can enjoy the beauty of the different landscapes and the hospitality of their inhabitants at an affordable budget, but a far higher humane value.
