An essential summer destination for Morocco’s high society!
Beach, sun and fun
If you continue further along past the town of Temara, but without straying from the coastline, you will come across the beach of Skhirat, a rather interesting spot to visit just 15 miles from Rabat. It is one of the few places where you will see European tourists in bikinis sharing the seashore with fully-clothed Moroccans. Due to its extraordinary weather and calm waters, this was the beach chosen as the location for the king’s summer palace, just to give you an idea of the standard of luxury, exquisiteness and, of course, security measures which you can expect to find here. Indeed, Morocco’s high society and business travellers alike all enjoy spending a few days relaxing at this coastal haven, and the hotels and restaurants are geared towards exactly that. A sight not to be missed is Skhirat’s beautiful lagoon, especially at night when the distant lights of the fishing boats seem to glow like fireflies on the water.
