Casablanca Holidays

Morocco’s largest city and capital respectively – do not have the wow-factor of Marrakech. Nor do they have the hordes of tourists. Casablanca features interesting art deco architecture, an attractive corniche and a humming nightlife. Rabat is more sedate but has a star attraction – the old Kasbah des Oudaïas, perched high above the Atlantic rollers.

With over four million people, Casablanca is Africa’s second largest city and the commercial and industrial centre of Morocco. It is a sprawling modern conurbation. The only remnants of Casablanca’s past are the 18th century sqala on the seafront and a tiny walled medina. Neglected for many years by tourists, Casablanca is attracting growing interest. It’s a city for devotees of Art Deco architecture (concentrated around the marché centrale) and for visitors who want to feel the pulse of modern, cosmopolitan Morocco.

On a holiday in Casablanca, a must-see monument is the stupendous Hassan II Mosque – the second-largest religious building in the world and one of only two mosques in Morocco open to non-Muslims. It is situated at one end of Casablanca’s famous corniche, a long curving ocean front of fish restaurants, beaches and marinas. There is a wealth of hotels in Casablanca, whether you're looking for a luxury hotel in the city or a riad holiday with a bit more authenticity on a tighter budget.

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.
