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.
