Moulay Bousselham

The laid-back fishing village of Moulay Bousselham is very popular with Moroccans. It's made up of little more than a single street crowded by cafés and souvenir shops. Moulay Bousselham's lagoon and beach are breathtaking. Its sandbar is somewhat dangerous for swimmers due to a rapid drop-off that causes a continual crash of breaking waves. However, this is one of northern Morocco's prime bird-watching locations, with boat trips organized to see thousands of birds—herons, pink flamingos, sheldrakes, and gannets. The best time for watching birds is just after dawn.
