Natural highlights of Morocco tours range from desert to the coast

Many travelers embark on a tour of Morocco to experience the bustling city streets of Casablanca, Marrakech and Fes. While each destination has plenty to offer, Morocco's natural appeal often goes overlooked. The North African gem is replete with attractions that run the gamut from the arid desert to beautiful coastline, and there are a few in particular that should become staples of Morocco tours.

Agadir Bay
Located at the base of the Atlas Mountains, Adagir Bay features more than 5 miles of pristine coastline that will impress even the most discerning beachgoers. The azure blue waters of the Atlantic Ocean are perfect for anyone looking to relax for a few days after making their way through the more adventure-packed interior of Morocco. There are also several other attractions along the way and surrounding the city of Agadir including Valley of the Birds - a park that gives you the chance to see some of the native wildlife in its natural environment.

Erg Chebbi
In stark contrast to the relaxing coastline of Adagir Bay is Erg Chebbi, one of Morocco's most well-known sand seas. Comprised of enormous sand dunes, Erg Chebbi is fed by sand from the Sahara Desert and is truly a sight to behold. Some of the dunes rise nearly 500 feet tall, and aside from being among the most unusual natural formations you'll come in contact with, the remoteness of these mountains of sand is impressive as well. 

Ouzoud Waterfalls
Not only are Morocco's coast and interior impressive, but its mountainous region is also home to impressive natural attractions, and that is certainly the case with Ouzoud Waterfalls. Located in the northeastern corner of the country, these stunning falls aren't the tallest in the world - they rise about 330 feet above the ground below - but the surrounding environment helps them stand above the rest. The hike to get there will stand out as a highlight, as it brings you through a lush, rural atmosphere where you can encounter some of the region's native wildlife. Once you get there, the sight of the water cascading down the rocky outcropping is sure to leave a lasting impression long after you've  headed home.
