Western teenage girls on Oualidia beach

are teenage girls completely safe on the beach; at least to the extent they would be in Europe? will they be able to walk around on their own and not be pestered?

Hustlers exist on beaches worldwide: apply commonsense and you should have no problem. Enjoy your visit Penny T and welcome to the Moroccan forums.

Morocco is generally safer than Europe.

Will they get hassled/bothered? I can't see how anyone could possibly answer that as it depends on knowing who will be visiting the town that week. One week might be fine, another might not?

Penny

Here is an extract from UK govt site on travel advice to Morocco

<<Violent crime is not a major problem in Morocco, but it is growing. There are occasional incidents involving theft at knifepoint in the major cities and along beaches. Since March 2008 a number of Europeans, including British citizens, have been attacked and robbed at knifepoint, mainly late at night..

Petty crime, such as pickpocketing and bag snatching, continues to increase. Crime and aggressive begging near ATM machines are increasing. Credit card fraud and scams such as substituting inferior goods for those that were actually purchased are common. Intimidation is sometimes used to force customers to purchase goods. You should remain vigilant and alert to potential confidence tricks.

You should avoid run down areas and badly lit streets in areas such as the medina..

Harassment of tourists by men posing as official tourist guides is common. There have also been reports of tourists being harassed on Moroccan trains.>

Penny, Just keep your wits about you,as one would in any strange/new environment.

There is no doubt they will receive some unwanted attention. My 14 year old daughter at the time of going was very uncomfortable with the attention, it was harmless but none the less, its not something you experience in the west.

You have not said there age. If they are 13 to 17 i personally would not leave them alone on the beach. Not because they will get in harms way, but because they will attract attention.

The girls are young, only 13 and 15. Very sensible and well travelled. They were happy on a beach in Thailand close to adults and hotels and chatted appropriately with vendors etc. I'm just concerned that actually Morocco is culturally very different and less used to sun worshipping tourists. I want the girls to feel completely comfortable.
