Vibrant and colourful with fascinating markets
Late deals to Morocco give you the chance to experience magical images of grand palaces and tardis-like Kasbahs.
This irresistible year round destination situated on the North West tip of Africa, has an enviable 300 days sunshine a year. It has a long history dating back to at least 8000BC, yet has only gained its own independence as recently as 1956.
Surprisingly, it's generally no longer than a 3 hour flight from the UK, making Morocco holidays perfect for last minute breaks and great value late deals. The imperial city of Rabat is the capital of the country, whilst main tourist areas include coastal Agadir and Essaouira and the inland 'Red city' of Marrakech. Further north you can reach the city of Tangiers from which a short ferry ride will take you to Tafira in southern Spain.
This vibrant and colourful country is a must if you are looking to engage in a new adventure, whilst couples will appreciate having the option of being as energetic or as idle as they wish. If you are feeling active, then a trip up to the snow-capped Atlas mountain range may be what you're looking for, or if you are looking for something a little bit warmer then a 4x4 excursion to the pre-Saharan sand dunes could be right up your street. The most popular tourist trail leads people to Agadir airport, where upon arrival, you could find yourself just a short 15 minute transfer away from this sun kissed beach haven.
