Southwest of Rabat, towards Casablanca, is the beautiful Skhirat Beach. Perfect for either an afternoon at the beach or a weekend getaway, Skhirat, while just minutes from Rabat, feels worlds away. Home of the luxurious L'Amphitrite Palace, Skhirat is a convenient and lovely place to spend the night if you feel like staying outside of the city. History buffs might be interested to know that the 1971 attempt to overthrow King Hassan II during his birthday gala occurred at the Royal Palace of Skhirat.
