The Northern Atlantic Coast Travel Guide

When to Go to The Northern Atlantic Coast

Try to avoid this region in July, August, and the first half of September unless you only plan to visit Rabat and Casablanca. Corresponding to Morocco's school vacation, the coastal resorts are extremely crowded in summer, hotels are packed, and prices are much higher. Moreover, huge numbers of Moroccans working in Europe return in July and August. In April, May, June, and October, the weather is delightful—easily warm enough to enjoy the beaches—and most resorts are pleasantly empty. If you don't need to swim or sunbathe, you can sightsee from November through March (and even then the weather can be quite warm). The relatively cold period lasts from around early December through the end of January; temperatures on the coast can plunge to 4°C–6°C (39°F–43°F).
