People looking for a relaxed and soothing destination, Rabat is the place to be. Though not a village in the mountains, it is a peaceful town located in hectic Morocco, the capital city of the Kingdom, where the Royal Family lives for most of the year, and full of amazing little spots and activities.
With temperatures no lower than 20°C (68°F) all year round, the weather in Rabat is absolutely perfect. Visit at any time of the year, but December and January do tend to be the coldest and wettest months. Because Moroccan weather isn’t like European weather, do multiple activities without worrying about getting too hot or cold.
Even though Rabat isn’t mostly famous for its beach, it is just an underrated area since it’s extremely calm and soothing. Camp right on the coastline, play games with loved ones, eat, and much more.
Also visit Temara Beach, located just about 20 minutes from the centre of Rabat.
Being the capital does make a difference in this case: since everything is very connected, transportation is available and the streets are very clean.
Reach Rabat by train from every city in Morocco, and after arriving, use either a taxi or the tramway to go around.
This is a quarter in Rabat built by Muslim refugees from Spain in the 12th century. The main gate, Bab Oudaia, was built in 1195 and decorated with impressively carved arches. However, this door doesn’t often open. Those who visit will have to go through a smaller gate on the main street.
Also check out the oldest mosque in Rabat. Built in the 10th century, it was restored in the 18th century with funds donated by an English pirate.
