Specialist Morocco has a new 15-day highly original trip entitled Along the Atlantic Coast, which was created for ‘Moroccoholics’ who have ‘done’ Marrakech and the other classic routes.

The itinerary reveals the cultural and natural diversity of Morocco’s Atlantic coastline, starting in Gibraltar on the southernmost point of Spain before heading south from Tangier all the way down to the Western Sahara in the South of the country.

The journey is by air-conditioned 4X4 to get off the beaten track wherever possible to discover hidden coastal towns, picturesque fishing villages, deserted beaches, towering sand dunes and a huge Western Sahara lagoon.

The adventure commences with a tour of Tangier’s Kasbah and Medina before heading south to the Capital of Morocco, Rabat, stopping en route to explore on foot the beautiful fortified town of Asilah.

There will be plenty of time to explore Rabat, visiting the Mohammed V Mausoleum, Hassan Tower, Chellah and Oudaya Gardens.

Other highlights of the itinerary include:

The Hassan II mosque in Casablanca 
The medina of El Jadida with its Portuguese cisterns, ancient ramparts and harbour 
The lagoon and beach at Oualida 
Essaouira with its bustling fishing port, fish market and souks 
Immouzer with its impressive waterfalls 
Hiking and bird watching in Souss-Massa National Park 
Discovering Tiznit, Ifni and Guelmin during a drive to Tan Tan plage 
Laayoune – the Spanish-influenced capital of Western Sahara 
The lagoon and R&R on the beaches of Dakhla

The holiday can be enjoyed year round and costs from £1949 pp (two sharing) or £1769 if 4 travel together. This includes all transportation by private 4X4 with English speaking driver, 14 nights’ accommodation (3/4 star riads and hotels), 14 breakfasts and 7 evening meals.
