“stunning arches”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed January 12, 2014

tides were high due to storm surges so a minimal time to see the arches, beautiful from above the beach on the cliffs. hotels and restaurants seemed grimy and we decided not to stay here. beaches sadly littered.

“Magical”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 10, 2014

A little hard to find but well worth it ! Its situated about 10 kilometres north of Sidi Ifney and can not be seen from the Road look out for a resort of apartments on your left on the road that leads to Merleft and take the left hand road before the apartments running along side of them ! This will leed you to parking and entrance to beach you can eat and stay here also!
We arrived when the tide was just going out and walked to the right of the beach thinking that this would take us to the arches as the tide went out and the day cleared we had a view looking south to the arches this was magical.And then proceeded to towards them be careful when walking underneath as pebbles fall constantly
This is a must do in Morocco and not to be missed if in the area !

“A triumphant context for a sunset!!!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 6, 2014

Take your time to get there in time to catch the sunset through the arch. Quite a trip but worth the effort!! To the left from entry point. Don't keep your feet dry ;-)

“Legzira Beach..... Southern Morocco”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 16, 2013

This is a stunning out-of-the way place that takes a bit of getting to but worth the journey. The huge stunning red sandstone and rock arches carved out over milleniums are truly awesome and best seen at low tide when you can walk beneath them; also at near sunset when the light turns them a wonderful red colour. There are also local beach huts where surfers or other young people hang out scattered along the cliff bases. The access is not easy nor is there much in the in the way of facilities, but don't let that deter you... it is a unforgettable and I guess part of the magic.

“The Beach...”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 27, 2013

Legzira Beach is situated about 6 km north of Sidi Ifni, and 22 km to the south of Mirleft . Despite the difficulty of the access caused by the winding slope leading to a limited parking area, it was really worth visiting . Words fail to describe such a beautiful sight , and my first impression was that Mother Nature Is an unequalled inspired artist ..The sandy, sunny and endless beach that my eyes met was like a precious jewel , and the low tide revealed millions of colourful pebbles .The nearby mountains and the ocean meet in an eternal embrace, forming incredible, huge arches ...A magnificent sight indeed !
