Charming medieval settlement with narrow streets and many dead ends. Best visited during the morning hours, before the heat of the afternoon. Do not leave without sipping a glass of moroccan tea with a Corne de Gazelle (a typical local almond pastry).

Lovely place with charming tiny white and blue streets where one can get lost, houses with Moroccan doors.. All very picuresque. Stunning view from the top square if you are lucky to get there, because recently it was closed for renovations / development. For those who are not affraid to get into tourist trap, you can enjoy Moroccan tea and... More

The site remains relatively authentic despite the gentrification of some of the houses by foreigners. But fortunately that is not immediately evident as their changes have been in the interior. The area is very much like it was soon after construction. The views out over the Atlantic are wonderful and walk down to the beach is certainly worth the hike... More

We visited around lunch time. Very pretty old streets, but no restaurants to speak of, only a few grocery stores.

The Kasbah is right across from the main shopping area of the medina, so you should definitely make the trip across the street. Plenty of photo opportunities here, lots of pretty trees and flowers, unusual doors and pathways. There is a great view of the water from a restaurant.

Lovely blue and white little streets .Unfortunately we left it until the evening to visit ,and the local police seemed to be stopping people going to the end viewpoint. However we slipped through with a local to see a great sunset. Also some of the streets were rather dimly lit by the time that we were leaving. We wished that... More

Cannot recall too much of our guide's description in this area. One of our group had her hand grabbed and "hennaed" before she could pull it away. It was a rainy day so this may color my opinion

We teased ourselves for a few days by visiting other attractions in the area, but when we finally crossed the threshold into the Kasbah we were blown away by the combination of blue and white. What makes it so special is that each house seems to have its own shade of blue, ranging from turquoise to indigo. The whitewash, the... More

good views over the port and coast. Lovely to wander through the blue and white streets and for under a £1 to visit the museum. the cafe sells awful coffee, and expensive, but gorgeous cakes. But if you want cakes - buy them from the 'patissiers' in the souks - look for the hygienically tiled ones. - 4 for under... More
