The Marrakech is the second largest city in Morocco

Book beaches offers on cheap flights to Marrakech to visit once in second largest city in Morocco.

The Marrakech is situated in south west Morocco at the foothills of the Atlas Mountains. The city is known as the Red City after the magnificent red fortifications that surround it.

Marrakech has an exotic traditional atmosphere and is home to the largest square in Africa, namely the Djemaa al Fna which comes alive during the day with acrobats, water sellers, dancers and musicians and by night becomes a huge outdoor restaurant, with numerous food stalls selling traditional Moroccan cuisine.

Generally the Marrakech property inside, are decked out in traditional fittings, with arches and fountains prominent; although several foreign owners of property in the Marrakech are now taking a more modern approach. Indeed, of the 400 riad-hotels that the Moroccan tourist board says exist in the medina, around 30% are foreign owners of the Marrakech properties. On the whole, this has been a recent trend a small, unrenovated riad in Marrakech would have cost around 300,000 Moroccan dirham (25,000) in 1998, whereas today the same Marrakech riad would fetch closer to a million dirham and three million if tastefully refurbished.

And also dont forget about the Mediterranea Saidia, which aims to be an entirely self-sufficient five star holiday resort, with all of about the beach, sports and leisure facilities of any self-respecting up-market resort of the 21st century.
