We enjoyed our first up close encounter with the Atlantic from the Medina pier. A sunny day enhanced our visit. We enjoyed massive fish platters at the cafe directly across from the main gate of the Medina. Lots of wall art here. They have an annual mural art festival that puts new paintings on the walls.

The port is OK. Busy at nights during Ramadan. The action is at the Medina or the street market. 80)

Enjoyed walking through the streets of this seaside village overlooking the sea. Uncrowded without the usual bothersome hawkers following us. Great views over the walls looking down at the water.

There were shops to visit and restaurants to try. We tried the mint tea and some Moroccan cookies which contained a lot of ground nuts. Very good. We saw a graveyard that was all rock/stone covered and looked more like a patio than a cemetery. Some of the walls in the Medina had colorful artwork, and many of the whitewashed buildings had bright blue trim. Streets were cleaner than expected. Recommend.

The Port of Assilah has a nice view of the stoney coast from the peer of the medina and the medina is full of nice wall paintings, shops with the usual leather, ceramic and crafts stuff but the port and medina as such were not something spectacular.

We took a side trip to this coastal village from Tangier. The beach was wide, clean and had some nice waves. The village was very picturesque. Everywhere you turned there was an interesting picture to take. The view of the Atlantic from the village was awesome. The sun was low on the horizon and offered a golden tone to everything. This part of the village reminds you of the Greek islands. Have a local guide take yoy there.
