Excursions to Asilah and visits of the medina

published on

To the south of Tangier, on the Atlantic coast is Asilah, a delightful seaside resort renowned for its old town, and calm white medina surrounded by Portuguese ramparts dating from the 15th century. From spring through to summer, the town comes to life with a series of different festivals and cultural moussems. Tourists flock to the beaches and the terraces of the fish restaurants fill up.
Just outside Asilah, there are a series of superb beaches, which are wilder and less crowded, where you can take a deck chair for the day to bask in the sun and savour the grilled fish of the day.
