This place has magnificent and beautiful views. It's great to have a long walk and visit the locals in this kasbah and it's ruins. Beautiful.! Just grab a fresh orange squeeze or pomegranate juice along the way while walking all the way up for a view of the sea. Stupendo.! Highly recommended!

Located at the mouth of Rabat's Bou Regreg, the Kasbah des Oudaias is a must-see. Start with a visit to the residential filled with narrow "streets" and colorful walls and doors. Once inside the actual Kasbah, the beautifully maintained gardens are a private oasis.

It is undergoing restoration at the moment but it doesn't detract from the visit. The gardens are small but well kept. The cafe is a nice spot with good views and very relaxed... catering for a mix of locals and tourists. Only tea and certain cakes on offer though. I personally wouldn't but any of the stuff from the shops... More

If you get the opportunity to stop over in Rabat, a trip to the Oudaiya is a must! A beautiful small neighborhood painted in blue, the Oudaiya is the perfect place to get lost exploring. Come at sunset, and be sure to stop over at the small cafe overlooking the river outlet. the mint tea is delicious - very sweet!... More

The Kasbah is a small area in the old town of Rabat. The house are painted with blue and white, which is making the charm of the place. Not so fancy as Chefchaouen, you might still find some beautiful spots for those blue streets photos. The area is rather small, so don't get confused by locals that will tell you... More

The gardens are small yet beautiful. There is a small museum. The real attraction lies just past the gardens, having a mint tea with a view of the ocean. The tea is 10 dh, and cookies are priced per piece. Tour buses roll thru here with large groups, but do get let this turn you away...it's a beautiful place to... More

Quirky, artisanal, walk. Artists at work in their studios. The view at the end is panoramic as you see the key, the ocean, and the river.

We visited this on a sunny January day expecting something picturesque and were disappointed. It all looked a bit run down and neglected. The views from the square overlooking the sea were nice but nothing special. There are a few shops in the main street, and nice that we were not hassled.

If you are looking for a place when u can listen to youth singing and playing guitars, if you want to observe the people, play with kittens, and have a nice walk inside the Kasbah and explore the small streets painted in white and blue !
