DESTINATION HIGHLIGHTS

Imperial fortified city, ancient trade route, cultural hub and caravanserai, Marrakech takes its name from two Berber words meaning "go" and "stop".

Marrakech gained notoriety in the 1960s when it became an obligatory stopover for hippies and a fashionable hang-out for The Beatles, The Rolling Stones and Led Zeppelin. Yves St Laurent and Jean Paul Gaultier brought a degree of chic with them in the 1980s, and UNESCO stepped in to protect the old market space as a World Heritage Site in 1985.

Flavoured by its rich, colourful past, Marrakech today is a vibrant melange of traditional souks, mosques, palaces, music, theatre and dance.

Jemaa el-Fnaa

Jemaa el-Fnaa

Jemaa el-Fnaa is a bustling marketplace and a well-known hub for traditional storytellers, musicians and performers. During the day, snake charmers brush shoulders with juice vendors. In the evenings, the square becomes populated with dancing boys and magicians, and fragrant aromas from street food stalls pervade the air. Previously a bus station, the square is now a UNESCO heritage site, closed to traffic and guarded by a strong but discreet police presence.

Royal Golf of Marrakech

Golf Courses

There are many fantastic golf courses in Marrakech. The Royal Golf of Marrakech is a legendary 27 hole (72 par) course of the highest international standard. Al Maadan and Amelkis are equally challenging 18 hole courses, while the sprawling Palmeraie offers 18 holes plus 9.

Atlas Mountains

Atlas Mountains

The rugged, snow-capped Atlas Mountains stretch 1,600 miles (2,500 kilometres) along north-western Africa. Traversing Algeria, Morocco and Tunisia, the mountain range sits between the Mediterranean and the Atlantic coastlines, and the vast Sahara desert. There are many hiking and trekking opportunities within this area, as well as the chance to visit unspoilt, indigenous Berber villages.
