Nature meets culture in Oujda-Saidia
Saidia shows you the part of Morocco where the protected Mediterranean laps the shore with warm, blue waters, where families and friends gather. But if you get an urge for urban explorations, head to Oujda and delight in its architectural heritage and unspoiled medina.
Nearly nine miles of white, sandy beaches run along the sea under a generous sun that shines throughout the year: Saidia, a quintessential Northern Moroccan beach town, is a little slice of heaven. Water sports and golf are just some of the many activities at your fingertips on or near the sea. In the evening, head to the marina to sample the region's famous dishes.
If you travel 37 miles inland from Saidia, you can explore the long, rich history of Oujda. Historical vestiges have pride of place here: the medina and its monumental doors; Sebti Palace, a cultural capital; and, a bit further afoot, LallaAicha Park, a cool haven in the heart of the city.
Oujda-Saidia, offers all this and more to satisfy mental and physical pursuits. You are guaranteed to have a great time!
