If you want to spend a couple of days on the beach, but in the company of historical monuments, then this is the perfect location.
A coastal town with everything you need for a great holiday
The town of Temara is for Rabat what Torrevieja is for Madrid, but with less beach-front snack bars and only nine miles away. That’s why you’ll find residents from the neighbouring capital enjoying everything that this seaside getaway has to offer: El Harhoura Beach stands out for its reefs and neighbouring forest; La Falaise is a small cove tucked away amidst the cliffs; the beach of Val D’or is renowned for its fine golden sands. The “Temara Coast” offers everything you might expect from a leisurely outdoor holiday, such as resorts, an equestrian centre, golf club and marina, as well as an endless list of sea-view restaurants. Yet Temara not only boasts a day of sea, surf and taking it easy. The town itself, founded in the twelfth century, holds a few secrets of its own, including a small-scale kasbah, mosque, and the ruins of the walled city that it once was.
