Getting lost is an inevitably but an undeniably enjoyable one. The old city, covered in 50 shades of blue, is vibrant yet traditional. An absolute must-see if you're going to Morocco.

This city is a feast for the eyes and the spirit. it has a unique atmosphere which I have never encountered anywhere else in the world. It is almost unspoilt by the modern world and may it stay like this forever. take a little stroll in the morning through these beautiful andalusian streets and feel history speaking to you in...

Gorgeous small village with good souvenirs to buy, amazing food and people. I will visit again and next time try to explore more the trekking trails. This was my favourite place in Morocco.

The Santorini of Morocco! Chefchaouen is a must visit, even if just for one night. The narrow, vibrant blue alleyways, with vivid green grapevines hanging overhead are a feast for the eyes. If you're a photographer you'll have a field day here!!! If going by STM coach bus, be sure to book in advance (should be 70drs each way). It... More

Give thanks for digital cameras, otherwise you would run out of film in this picturesque old town. Try and walk up and down each of the alleys as the red-tiled roofs, bright blue and white buildings, gorgeously painted doors and narrow laneways make for great pictures. A highlight of Morocco.

They call this town the blue pearl for a reason. Get a guide to take you through the city -- because you'll get a lot more out of the history of the place than you would wandering around on your own.

We visited the city of Chefchaouen expecting to spend a lot of time. We walked through most of the old town- the medina in a few hours and then spent a few hours looking at shops and then we were done. There are some cute ryads all around the city. Watch out for pickpockets and hash seller.

You could easily walk this area on your own ( and probably get lost!) but you will appreciate its history and dynamics so much more if you use a guide. What an amazing morning of discovery we had in this beautiful city.

The colours in this charming old Moroccan mountain town are simply breathtaking! The people are quiet, dignified and friendly, - there is not the usual hordes of "hawkers" which so spoil other places in Morocco. We sailed from Algeciras into Ceuta, walked through the border and used a taxi to get to Chefchaouen! The Taxi cost €50 and the journey... More
