This is where you will find wonderful bazaars, palaces and lively plazas. Morocco is also famous for its beaches and some of the best resorts include Essaouira, Tangier and Asilah. Morocco also has natural beauty. You can rent a camel through the fascinating Dades Valley Sahara, climbing the highest peak in North Africa. A favorite of independent travelers, Essaouira is a great place to get away from the heat and bustle of big cities. Jimi Hendrix and Bob Marley enjoyed the beach scene here in the 1960s. Highlights include strolling in the beautiful city, narrow streets filled with red and blue painted houses, the walls, the beach and listen to the traditional music of the Gnawa. . Situated in the Rif mountains, Chefchaouen is a small town in a big landscape. Popular with independent travelers (perhaps because it is the cannabis capital of Morocco), but not yet spoiled by them. Highlights include hiking, swimming in streams, with a drink in the main square (Outa el Hammam) and enjoy the beauty of the white houses and brightly painted doors . Merzouga is a desert city that is close to the dunes of Erg Chebbi impressive sand dunes largest in Morocco. From here you can organize excursions on camels in the desert and get a taste of Bedouin life. Jebel Toubkal, located in the High Atlas Mountains, is the highest peak in North Africa at 4,167 m (13,667 ft). It is a challenge trek to the summit, but it is worth it for the spectacular views. While you can make the summit and return to the town of Imlil in a day, it is recommended to take at least three days to make the most of it. Meknes is a little smaller and more casual back as Marrakech and Fez yet this imperial city has charms similar. Highlights include a wonderfully preserved medina filled souks that is easy to navigate without a guide. The imperial city built by Moulay Ismail powerful in the 17th century, is a showcase of Moroccan architecture with huge doors and impressive sculptures. Roman ruins near Volubilis are also worth a visit. Tangier is the gateway to Africa for many travelers. While the city does not have quite the charm it did in the 1940s and 1950s where you could mingle with people like Truman Capote, Tennessee Williams and Paul Bowles there are still many things to see. Highlights include the medina, the kasbah and the New Town. Aila is a beautiful town beach on the North Atlantic coast of Morocco. Aila is very popular with holidaymakers who flock to Morocco's sandy beaches in the summer months. The city walls are covered with colorful frescoes and houses are whitewashed make this city looks like it could be home in Greece. Popular cultural festival is organized every summer. Other highlights include beaches, small businesses, and the walls of the medina.
