The summer months which are from June to August get very hot with travellers flocking to the beach destinations such as Agadir. During the winter periods from November to February, temperatures are relatively mild however, areas such as the Atlas Mountains can get cold, with snow occurring at times.
We closely monitor the latest travel updates to Morocco and follow the advice of the UK Foreign Office. For the latest travel advice from UK Foreign & Commonwealth Office (FCO), please visit: https://www.gov.uk/foreign-travel-advice/morocco
At present, Australian, New Zealand, British, American and Canadian residents do not need a visa for visits to Morocco of up to 90 days. For all other nationalities please visit: http://www.projectvisa.com/
The culture of Morocco has altered throughout the years with an assortment of the indigenous Berbers, African, Arabic and Mediterranean traditions making Morocco what it is today in terms of language, clothing, music and cuisine. Much of Morocco’s population is Muslim and are Berber and Arab by identity. The Moroccan people are warm, open and very hospitable who often invite people into their homes. They’re also very traditional in respect to looking after their elders and family members, and clothing is particularly important so, covering up, especially for females is advised.
Due to the influences from the Middle East, Africa, and the Mediterranean, Moroccan food of the present day mirrors the nation's vibrant history, combined with the cooking traditions of both its Berber and Arab residents. With plenty of cous cous, tagine, dried fruit, oranges and mint tea offered whilst exploring the souks, markets, restaurants and stalls, Moroccan food is tasty, colourful and fabulous. As an Islamic nation, alcohol is not widely available and in some parts, such as the city medinas, alcohol may not be able to be purchased at all.
Souks or markets are a main characteristic of Moroccan existence. Practically all towns and cities have a souk which is an experience within itself. Exploring these bustling and vibrantly coloured souks are a major highlight. You can acquire anything from lamps to rugs, from argan oil to spices, from jewellery to clothing and everything in between. Haggling in the markets is generally welcomed meaning that often you’ll get some great bargains.
New Year’s Eve and Yennayer: New Year’s Eve is generally marked by some sort of celebration especially in the tourist areas and sites such as the Sahara, which is very popular with travellers and a fantastic way to greet the new year. The Berber people essentially celebrate their own New Year, Yennayer, in harmony with the Julian calendar. Essaouira Gnaoua World Music Festival: Essaouira Gnaoua Festival is held annually in the summer and celebrates the enigmatic music of the Gnaouas and other international beats. It offers a melting pot of music which includes combinations of jazz and rock with the roots coming from a rare blend of Berber, African and Arabic songs. The festival is held in Essaouira, a charming port town recognised for its chilled yet lively atmosphere.
