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.  Read more..

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 cafes and a vast sandy beach, complete with shipwreck.

Just outside of town is the Royal Golf Sofitel 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.
