Holidays in El Jadida

The Portuguese settled in El Jadida in 1502 and built a fortified town that they named Mazagan. In the old cité Portugaise you can go for a walk around the ramparts, admire some fine 16th century doorways and observe the play of light and water in the old underground cistern.

The tourist buses don’t stop at El Jadida so the historic centre is quieter and more hassle-free than in many Moroccan towns. The ville nouvelle has palm-lined boulevards, pleasant cafés and a vast sandy beach, complete with shipwreck.

Just outside of town is the Pullman El Jadida Royal Golf & Spa, which boasts one of the most scenically-located courses in Morocco. To the north of El Jadida is Azemmour, another Portuguese outpost. It has a pretty, unspoiled medina overlooking the river Ouem Er-Rhia.

The Lawrence of Morocco map displays the locations of the destinations and accommodation that we have selected and visited; for each item, hovering over or clicking the marker will display a short summary and photo of that place or hotel, and hotel pricing. Follow the links in the info box to the full page listing which has much more information.

Note that the online map offers both a satellite view (click satellite in the top right) and, for some locations, a street level view (Drag the person in the top left onto the map). These let you explore the country; and when you wish to explore in person, or if you have any questions about the places you see, give our staff a call, or request a quote. Our staff regularly visit the places and accommodation that we feature.

When you book a holiday with us we will provide full driving instructions for reaching your accommodation, where necessary; these can be used by yourself, or you could enjoy the luxury of a driver. Alternatively we will arrange private (car rather than coach) transfers for you; helicopter transfers are also possible for some destinations.
