Places to See in Al Hoceima

The ideal destination for relaxing holidays in a beautiful seaside resort city, Al Hoceima is a small treasure on the Mediterranean coast of Morocco. The Riffian town will charm you with its rich past, well-preserved historic buildings, and white and blue landscape. Since it is located on the northern edge of the Rif mountains, facing the Mediterranean Sea, it perfectly combines sea and mountain activities. Much of what makes Al Hoceima popular is its local lifestyle, apart from its impressive mountain ranges and sandy beaches. Make sure to take advantage of busy downtown squares, local markets, and street food stalls. Going hiking in the Rif mountains, visiting the Towers of Alcala, exploring the sea beds at Plage Isri, and walking around the Al Hocemia National Park are only a few of the activities you can embark upon throughout your journey. You can also try various water sports at Tharra Youssef and enjoy the panoramic sea views from Morro Viejo. Although things to do in Al Hocemia never end, you will ultimately find yourself lured by the city's beautiful and inviting beaches at some point during your stay. The city's beaches are mostly sandy and get quite busy during the summer months. The beaches in the outskirts of the city center are usually less crowded and are perfect for a peaceful and quiet sunbathing session—many count Al Hoceima's beaches among the most beautiful in the Mediterranean. You can drive about ten minutes outside the city to find almost private white sand beaches that seem untouched. In the heart of the town lays the Quemado beach, which is far less unspoiled than the other beaches, though it can be quite crowded in the summer.
