Excursion to Oualidia Details
Oualidia is well off the tourist trail but well worth a visit if you fancy a lazy day on the coast as part of your stay in Morocco.
Famous for its oysters, delicious fresh seafood and splendid seawater lagoon, for most of the year Oualidia is a dreamy Atlantic fishing town. A long sand bar separates the wild Atlantic Ocean to create a tranquil and very picturesque lagoon. Nearby, the Oualidia estuary is a haven for migratory birds.
On this lazy day, we include a boat trip to explore the lagoon. You’ll have time to unwind on the dune-swept beach and, if you fancy something more energetic you can hire a kayak, mountain bike or walk along the coast.
Private departures operate daily and can be tailored to personal interests. Timings are approximate and may vary due to the interests of the group, weather or seasons.
Sun-glasses, swimwear, comfortable footwear and plenty of sun protection.
