MOST BEAUTIFUL PLACES TO VISIT IN MOROCCO FOR LANDSCAPES AND NATURE
1. THE SAHARA DESERT
In this post I am going to choose some of the best places that you can visit on your Morocco tour .while the country has much more to offer than just desert, camels, and sand dunes, it would be a shame to miss out on iconic Sahara Desert photos when visiting Morocco for (photography) purposes!
The sun creates a beautiful light show with the vibrant red, orange, and yellow colors of the endless sea of sand throughout the day. Groups of grumpy camels and blue-robed Berbers are frequently good subjects for desert photography. The best times for a desert photoshoot are at sunrise and/or sunset when you can play with shadows and silhouettes in the soft golden light. The villages of Merzouga and M’Hamid are the best places to access Morocco’s Sahara desert, especially if you’re taking public transportation.
From both villages, you can easily hike into the desert or hop on a camel and spend as much time as you need to get stunning photos. Going on a desert trip and spending the night in a desert camp is also something I highly recommend. The desert starry sky is one of the most beautiful skies you’ll ever see! There is no light pollution, making it ideal for night photography!
2. OUZOUD WATERFALLS
The Ouzoud Waterfalls, also known as Cascades d’Ouzoud, are one of Morocco’s most beautiful waterfalls and the second tallest in Africa. They are a grouping of several waterfalls that cascade into the El-Abid River gorge near the village of Tanaghmeilt, about 2.5 hours from Marrakech. The Ouzoud Falls, Africa’s second tallest waterfall, is a sight to behold. It’s also a fantastic photo opportunity. You can take beautiful photos of the waterfalls. One thing to be ready for is to share the location with a large number of other tourists. Despite the fact that it was a creative challenge and that I had to be patient, I was able to capture some interesting shots of the waterfalls, even with people in them.
3. THE AKCHOUR WATERFALLS
Also worth seeing are the Akchour Waterfalls in the Rif Mountains near Chefchaouen. While not as tall as the Ouzoud Waterfalls, they are very pretty, photogenic, and – as an added bonus – much less touristic! The Akchour waterfalls are a series of small cascades, a 20-meter-high waterfall. The high cascade is a 100-meter-high waterfall (the big Akchour) located in Talassemtane National Park, a day trip from Chefchaouen. The waterfalls are only accessible by foot. It takes one hour to reach the small Akchour and another hour to reach the large Akchour at the end of the hiking trail. The hiking trail winds around stunning lush gorges and along the river’s edge, passing many beautiful cascades. It’s a relatively easy hike that’s also a lot of fun!
5. SUNSET AT THE MOROCCAN COAST
Morocco has a beautiful coastline with some of the most spectacular sunsets I’ve ever seen. My favorite sunset occurred in the beach town of Essaouira after a cloudy day when the sky turned completely purple. But you don’t have to go to Essaouira to see beautiful sunsets. A stunning sunset can be seen in almost any Moroccan coastal town. Having said that, I recommend going to a fishing town like Essaouira, Asilah, or Taghazout because the fishing boats can add a special touch to your sunset photos.
