Oualidia tourism guide

Charming seaside resort on the Atlantic coast of Morocco, halfway between Casablanca and Essaouira, Oualidia represents an unique curiosity in Morocco. Its turquoise-blue circular lagoon and its sandy dunes are the setting of an ancient palace of Mohammed V (actual sovereign’s grand-father) deserted since 40 years. Far from Moroccan medinas’ tumults, time seems to be suspended here. It is an earthly paradise for travelers desirous to find themselves surrounded by nature and enjoy the fisher population’s welcome. Because, if the tourist reputation of the city is firmly established, Oualidia’s main resources remain fishing and oyster farming. Oysters, real treasure of this city, are well-known everywhere in Morocco. We find them in the best restaurants and we come a long way to savor them.
