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.

Our price promise: We will not only match offer prices on hotels you may have see quoted elsewhere, but additionally offer FREE room upgrades at most of our hotels, and the best ground transport for transfers, tours and multi centre trips.

Reviews of Lawrence of Morocco specialist tours to Morocco

We have wracked our brains for negative comments but cannot come up with any!

Good afternoon all,

We had a wonderful holiday. The hotel staff were very welcoming but discreet and made every effort to ensure our stay was comfortable. The lodge was lovely and kept spotlessly clean. Due to the cold nights, when we arrived, and when we returned from a day in Marrakesh, the radiators were turned on and the staff offered ...

I was coming to understand that Fes reveals its considerable charm only slowly.

We know Morocco intimately

Max Lawrence - MD Lawrence of Morocco

When travelling around Morocco it is not (contrary to common belief) necessary for women to ‘cover up’ out of respect for local modesty traditions. Morocco is a very mixed society with Moroccans who dress as westerners and more traditional families dressing in a more traditional way.

The only areas of the country where it is advisable for women to cover up their legs and shoulders would be in some parts of the High Atlas Mountains (very remote areas) where the locals are rarely visited by foreigners. It is highly unlikely that you will be visiting these areas on any holiday arranged by Lawrence of Morocco.
