Lovely spot to wander and have a slightly over priced tea (you get spoilt in Morocco, paying very little for tea and treats) However, the view is why you happily pay for tea at the place over looking the water. The Oudaias neighborhood is so lovely to wander through as well as the Spanish gardens. Certainly worth taking a look,... More

I entered the garden inside the gates of the Kasbah and had a nice stroll inside. I went to the main gate and was thoroughly pissed off in about 5 minutes. I entered the main street and this man tells me that the Kasbah is closing in one hour (suspicous a lie). I cruise on by and head down the... More

I absolutely loved this area. I like to walk and see beautiful things and this place delivers. It lets you out on the Semaphore Platform that overlooks the ocean, beach, and estuary. The beautiful blue and white buildings along the way make it well worth the visit alone. Highly recommend.

This walled city is a must see. We were there with a guide, but in daylight it is not necessary. The white and blue walls are bright and make the alleyways seem a little wider than they are. Small shops appear here and there where the alley widens. People live and play in the alleys. Some small boys kicked a... More

I enjoyed my time to walk around the beautiful, old heritage building, few shops and restaurants and good view over the harbour. Then I walk out and walk over the main stree to watch over the sunset.

You quite simply cannot do any better than to visit the platform to view the ocean, the surfing beach, the Bouregeg river and the Hassan Tower. Any visitors to Rabat must come here. The blue and white walls and the colossal gates of the Oudaias are a highlight of most of our friends' visits to Rabat.

If there is one place in Rabat to visit it is definetly this one!!! So beautiful peaceful and different of what you will see around. Stop to the cafe for a tea at the sunset to enjoy the view and the color of the sky

We expected more of the Kasbah, and though we enjoyed walking around the narrow streets, we left a little underwhelmed. We had a nice tea at a café. There just didn't seem much to see and the place lacked a bit of soul.

A must for a walk around. A quiet stroææ along these small streets, is a walk in a different world. And at the end you can treat yourself to a coffee or mint tea at a small cafe with an amazing view over the river, estuary and over to Salé.

This Kasbah Des Oudayas, is not a kasbah it's a ksar because according to the definition of the Kasbah is a fortified town under control of only one family, but Oudayas Ksar has more than 3000 Families lives inside and most of them are wealthy families, you can see the style of the homes, and the decorations, with blue washed...
