Escape to the sundrenched coast of Casablanca, an upbeat town that’s cool, sophisticated and, with over 300 days of sunshine a year, a great year-round destination!

The whitewashed buildings of Casablanca’s old medina may come as a surprise, but are true to their Spanish name. A city of contrasts in many ways, beautiful Art-Deco, Hispano-Moorish and modernist buildings sit alongside delightful public parks. Explore galleries filled with impressive art and artefacts, or browse traditional handicrafts in the Quartier des Habous, a pretty French colonial district with shops set around a flower-filled square. Stop and refresh at one of many hip cafés or seafront restaurants, whilst the evening can be spent in the sleek bars and exclusive clubs that lie along the palm-fringed Corniche promenade. The beaches here are big as are the crashing waves; enjoy exhilarating walks along crescents of sweeping sands, feel the thrill as you embrace the surf, or simply lie back on a lounger and relax beneath the sun.


Marvel at the eclectic mix of architectural styles that make up the fantastic churches in Casablanca. The Cathédrale du Sacré Coeur, for example, is a former Roman Catholic church that boasts an extraordinary architectural mix of Art Deco, Mauresque and neo-Gothic styles. Visit the Church of St John the Evangelist, the oldest church building still in use in Casablanca, built in 1906 on land owned by the British Crown, or explore the Church of Notre-Dame de Lourdes, a fine example of European modernism that boasts striking stained-glass windows and an impressive concrete façade.


With miles of sweeping sands, Casablanca is a beach lover’s paradise. Top up your tan as you lounge on comfortable sun beds or in a private cabana, take to the waves with world-class surfing and bodyboarding, or enjoy thrilling motorised watersports or quad biking on the beach. If you’re seeking sun, sand and sea, Casablanca is the place for you!

Hassan Il Mosque

This extravagant building was completed in 1993 after great expense and artistic labour, and the result is one of the largest and most spectacular mosques in the world. The mosque stands on an outcrop jutting out over the Atlantic Ocean and boasts an impressive minaret which stands at 210m-tall, serving as the city’s major landmark. The style of this beautiful building exhibits the best of Moroccan artisanship; its carved wood, stone structures and intricate marble floors are a feast for the eyes. Another impressive feature is the glass floor in the basement, revealing the Atlantic Ocean breaking against the rocks beneath the building.

Old Medina

This 19th-century medina oozes with Moroccan charm and is perfect for an afternoon stroll. Wander along its stalls and meet the passionate, local vendors, or explore the crooked lanes and shaded squares that lie between downtown Casablanca and the Hassan II Mosque.


Casablanca is a year round destination. It has a warm Mediterranean climate during the summer months (July to September) with an average temperature of 23 °C. August is the hottest month. The winter months (December to February) are cooler, with January’s temperature averaging at 13°C. Meanwhile, the wettest month is February with an average of 70mm of rainfall.
