3. Ouzoud waterfalls
It is easy to identify Morocco with desert. But it is not entirely true. This country hides places as incredible as these waterfalls. With a drop of more than one hundred meters, you will not only be able to admire them, but also bathe at their feet or enjoy hiking trails in its surroundings.
Now yes, we enter fully into the immensity of the dunes of the Sahara desert, and we do it from an incredible city like Merzouga. From here you can venture into this sea of sand and enjoy, for example, a night under the stars in one of the most fascinating places you can imagine.
5. Ait Benhaddou
Impressive and wonderful, despite being built with a material as modest as adobe. An incredible fortification that seems to have stopped in time and that invites you to lose yourself in a fundamental part of the essence of Morocco, such as the typical Berber architecture.
It is known as the “Gateway to the Desert”. From here you can visit some of the most beautiful kasbhas, such as Ait Ben Haddou, Tifoultout or Taourit. And besides, it’s a movie theater, scenes from films such as Gladiator, The Mummy either Star Wars.

It is the “pearl of the Atlantic”, and it is that some of the jewels of Morocco are bathed by the ocean. One of them is this beautiful fortified city, really a fishing village with white houses and narrow streets that will captivate you with its tranquility and simple beauty. Also for its delicious gastronomy.
Very close to Sidi Ifni is this spectacular beach where the rock arches create an image that leaves you speechless. A place of authentic fantasy in which the golden sand, the blue of the ocean and the reddish of the stone intermingle.. You will not be able to avoid going under the arches again and again and taking thousands of photos, for sure.
10. Volubilis, one of the lesser-known jewels of Morocco
First the Carthaginians and then the Romans left a mark very close to one of the imperial cities, Meknes. We are talking about Volubilis, a wonderful archaeological complex that reminds us of the splendor of the Roman Empire, who reached lands as far away as this part of Africa.
