A short drive from Casablanca, Mohammedia and the surrounding area has a long stretch of pretty bays, which draw in droves during the summer. It was originally a port town and currently has a delightful harbor and yacht club and a good choice of fish restaurants, as well as a food market. Charming wooden beach houses line the coast. North of town, the beaches are good for swimmers, surfers, and sunbathers alike although currents here can be dangerous.
On Saturday, there is a souk at Al Alia, a southeastern district of Mohammedia. It’s a grand event for locals, and you can see donkeys, horses, and traps as well as walkers flocking towards it for miles. You’ll find everything and everyone from confit camel meat to dentist chairs.
