What to do and Where to stay in
El Jadida

Just an hour from Casablanca lies the stylish town of El Jadida (meaning New Town), which is a UNESCO world heritage site. Known as Mazagan under Portuguese rule, it was renamed El Jadida after being resettled in 1815 and is now very much a bustling beach resort for Moroccans from Casablanca, Marrakech and Fes.

Experiences in El Jadida

The Medina is more European than many of the others in Morocco due to it’s past and is known even today as the Cité Portugaise.  A quiet, walled and bastioned seaside village, it’s fun to explore the winding alleys and ramparts.

Just a few kilometres away you can find some stunning stretches of beach with dune backdrops, with conditions ideal for surfing or explore the wide beaches by quad bike.  Thanks to the resort of Mazagan, there is also excellent golf available for dedicated players or those looking to learn.

Keen ornithologists can take a trip to the nearby town of Oualidia, where the coastal wetlands have been known to attract over 400 bird species.  Some are resident whilst others are migrants who stop over en-route between Europe and Africa in October (or March / April).  These are the best time to spot the pink flamingos balancing in the waters when you head out by boat or kayak.
