Rabat is a city rich in history and is home to many important places to visit during your travel to Morocco. Most tourists might overlook the capital city, assuming it might not be as exciting as Morocco’s iconic tourist cities such as Marrakech, Tangier, and Essaouira.
The political and administrative capital of Morocco lacks first-class tourist attractions, but it has a lot of charm. The new city’s palm-lined streets are a clean, well-maintained, and relatively traffic-free delight for those who have spent some time in Casablanca. There’s a clean central beach, a lovely, pristine bar, and an attractive walled city that is less attractive to tourists than other major cities. In general, the city is a good option for a short stay.
Rabat is overflowing with must-see tourist spots and various activities. We’re here to help you find your accommodation in Rabat and make exploring the surrounding area a breeze, with our guides on where to go, what to see and when to visit.

Along the Andalusian Wall, renamed Avenue Hassan II, you can admire Bab Chellah, one of the entrance doors to the Medina, of rare elegance. Large and airy, the medina is a pleasant walking route. In the covered market, stock up on scents with the scent of flowers and the aroma of spices. Further on, a farandole of colors is offered to your eyes with the costumes in shimmering colors presented in a window. By continuing your walk on Souïqa Street, you will be immersed in the effervescence of the souks which characterize the old town so well. Let yourself be enchanted by the magic of the Orient on the rue des consuls covered by glass roofs and where carpets and other artisanal products catch the eye.
The program of your holidays in Rabat (and its surroundings): bask by the water and feel the sea breeze caress your cheek. And if you feel like it, why not go shellfish hunting? We suggest that you set up your base camp near the iconic Temara Beach, 12 km from the city center, but you will also find plenty of affordable deals near Dahomey Beach, another equally attractive option.
Mohammed V University, Royal Golf Dar Es Salam and Kasbah des Oudaias are just a few of the places that should be on your travel itinerary. With our vacation offers in Rabat (and its surroundings), you will have more budget for other outings.
