Morocco

Morocco (Arabic: المغرب Al-Maghrib; Berber: ⵍⵎⴰⵖⵔⵉⴱ Elmaɣrib; French: Maroc) is a kingdom in North Africa. Morocco has a rich heritage from the Islamic Golden Age and extensive desert. For Europeans, Morocco has been, and remains, the gateway to Africa.

Map of Morocco

  Mediterranean Morocco
several towns and cities, Spanish enclaves and some important ports
  North Atlantic Coast
the northern half of Morocco’s coast is home to the capital and Casablanca, interspersed with more laid back beach towns
  South Atlantic Coast
the southern coast is more laid back, home to gorgeous beach towns like Essaouira and Agadir
  High Atlas
covering the High Atlas mountains and the surrounding areas including Marrakech
  Middle Atlas
covering the Middle Atlas mountains and the surrounding areas including Fez and Meknes
  Saharan Morocco
the vast desert region of Morocco runs along the border with Algeria; camel safaris and sand dunes are the name of the game here
  Anti Atlas
the southern portion, covering Tarouddant down to the Western Sahara border

As travel conditions in the Western Sahara are remarkably different from a traveller’s point of view, it is treated as its own entity. This is not a political endorsement of claims by any side in the dispute over the sovereignty of these territories.
