Ryanair’s Hotspots You Need to Visit in 2022
Renowned for its sandy beaches that stretch over 10km of Atlantic coastline – Morocco’s most vibrant city is the perfect location for water sports fans. Allow yourself to be spoilt for choice and opt for kayaking, surfing or parasailing while soaking in the best views.
For those who prefer fun on dry land, take a hiking trip in the nearby Paradise Valley – a particularly picturesque hike trail surrounding incredible emerald waters. Drive the twisting and turning mountain roads, passing through traditional Berber villages to reach Imouzzer, which is perfectly perched in the Atlas Mountains.
In summary, this Moroccan city has plenty to offer, whether exploring the elegant market stalls, cafes and shops in Port de Plaisance or bartering over priceless treasures in the traditional Souk market, you’re certain to have the time of your life.
Famed as the ‘red city’ of Morocco from the circus-like square of Jemaa El-Fnaa to the ornate palaces and stunning gardens, it offers a bit of something for everyone. Marrakesh is a must-visit destination for tourists seeking out a quintessential Moroccan experience.
Steeped in history and culture and a mixture of old and new, Marrakesh has its own unique personality. Soak up the bustling Medina souks where you’ll find authentic items from jewelry, lamps and tagine pots as well as authentic spices and rich musky oud oils.
Take a trip to the Atlas Mountains and explore the flat terrain on camelback before hiking further to take in the views and waterfalls. Lastly, make sure to take a stroll through the impressive Jardin Majorelle – once purchased by founder of French fashion house Yves Saint Laurent in 1980 to save it from destruction. Jardin Majorelle is home to over 3,000 botanical species, an art deco villa, and a museum of the history of Berbers and is Instagrammers heaven with its bright vivid colours.
