Beach is really big and beautiful. We spent three days in this wonderful town, - the only downside was the windy weather, which is quite common there, as we where told.

Had a pleasant morning walk down the beach all the way from the harbour to some ruins almost opposite the harbour, a 3.5mile walk there are back. Beautiful stretch of beach, we are here in August so there are a lot of locals also on holiday and a few kids clubs, which for us as been nice as its added to the atmosphere. The far end is much quieter and there are some ruins which we sat on to do a bit of reading which was very peaceful. There are a number of camels and horses that do approach you, but if you don't want a ride just say no and they do get the idea after a couple of no's.

We loved walking along this beach. We walked for an hour each day. It is great to watch the camels, horses and kite surfers. We would stop at Beach and Friends on our way back for a much needed beer!

This beach was great. Fun and lots of activities. From horses camels quads to water sports. The beach is huge clean with nice waves.
Go early. Later gets very windy..but good time for lunch and exploring the medina. We will return.
People are very respectful. I have travelled around the world. This place is in my top 5. Remember. ..service counts. ..

We stayed at the southern end of the beach and most days wandered either along the promenade to the town or kicked through the waves heading to the rocks that mark the southern extremity.

Closer to the town the local people and Moroccan tourists have family time and impromptu games of football but as you move south so there is plenty of room to enjoy the sand and dip in and out of the sea

The sand is pleasant with long areas of firm sand and some low dunes at the southern end

Plenty of camels and horses for guided rides or places to learn wind surfing

The promenade is being developed and the pavement is a few 100m from completion at the town end

It is windy. A dry wind that can mask the intensity of the sun so be careful. But it wasn't unpleasant whilst we lay on the beach or strolled its length.

It's about 3km long so a good place for an early morning jog
