Morocco is the African country which offers the greatest variety of climate, thanks to being bordered by two seas and having the Atlantis mountain range at the South which limits the expansion of the desert. In the “cold country where the sun is hot” rains come in autumn and spring, whereas the summer is hot and dry. The climate is similar to that of California.
Ideally one can divide Morocco in three great areas: the coast, the mountains and the central desert. These areas with such different climates also differ greatly in terms of views, culture and costumes and this is what makes this country so fascinating.
Morocco has 3,500 Km of coasts, along which one finds all the main cities. The Mediterranean coast is characterised by high cliffs whereas on the Atlantic coast, past Gibraltar, the smaller sandstone cliffs are alternated with lovely little beaches. On these coasts the tourist can find whichever type of sea holiday he wishes: from the sight of a great number of wild animals and sea birds to scuba archaeology, from uncontaminated beaches to romantic boat cruises.
