The best beach in Casablanca – Morocco

Day 4 in Morocco, and our 2nd day in Casablanca.

We are going out into the city to find something to eat and than go to the beach and relax.

As it is a Saturday everything is closed in the area we are living, so we are going a bit more into the city to have breakfast.

The beach of Casablanca is quite nice, but It not the perfect time to swim, but more like staying on the beach and relax.

If i would make my plan again for Morocco, I wouldn’t spend more than a day in Casablanca. I would only visit the mosque, maybe a quick run to the beach and moll and in the same day go further to a different destination.

After a few good hours running and relaxing on the beach we are going to the Morocco Mall which is the 2nd largest mall in Africa

After the two days spent in Casablanca we are going to our next destination, in Fes. We know that is famous for their tannery, but don’t know too much about the city so we will discover it on the go.

Casablanca – is it worth visiting?

We are ready to further explore Morocco so we left our riad early in the morning and going to our next destination – Casablanca.

The best option to travel in Morocco is by train. The distance between Marrakesh and Casablanca is around 4 to 5 hours and a 1st class ticket costs about 15EUR.

As soon as we arrived to Casablanca and got out from the train station the taxi driver fight for the customers has begun. At least 5 drivers approached us to go to their taxi and as soon as we picked one they got into a fight for who has been first. It was pretty intimidating.

Everything looked way different from what we have seen so far in Marrakesh. First of all, everything is painted into white and blue. Than for some reason we don’t feel safe walking on the streets. It could be that is less populated than Marrakesh, I cant see any other tourists around the streets and it is very polluted.

We have arrived to our hotel, left our luggage and we went out to roam around the city.

Our first destination was the Hassan II Mosque which is the 3rd largest Mosque in the world.

It is a massive and amazing structure.

It was built just in seven years during the reign of King Hassan II. It cost around 800mil dollars and over 10K people worked on it 24/7 to its completion.

We also pass by the famous Casablanca cafe from the well known movie, but we skipped going in and instead decided to visit the beach of Casablanca.

We finished our evening with an amazing sunset and took some really cool photos.
