Affordable one-way flights to Marrakech

Marrakech

The Moroccan city of Marrakech is a bundle of energy. Its maze of souks set between magnificent mosques and palaces create a unique atmosphere while the buzz of the café culture and lively bar and restaurant scene create everything you need for a fantastic holiday. Known as ‘The Red City’, its deep rose-tinted old city is its beating heart, watched over by its towering ancient Koutoubia Mosque.

Marrakech is split into two distinct parts – the old city or medina and the modern city. Gueliz is the centre of the modern city, with upmarket shops, art galleries, restaurants and bars offering a nice contrast to the traditional areas. The medina meanwhile dates back to the 11th Century and is listed as a UNESCO World Heritage Site for its historical importance – a great place to step back in time and explore traditional Morocco.

More about Marrakech

Marrakech is also fast becoming a go-to destination for golfing holidays. Set beneath the snowy peaks of the Atlas Mountains, it boasts some of the most beautiful golf courses in Morocco and with around 300 days of sunshine a year it’s the perfect place to tee off. If you prefer to spend your time on the slopes then there are a couple of good resorts open during the winter months to tie in with your Morocco trip.

Of course a trip to Marrakech is not complete without exploring the maze of colourful markets the city has to offer. The Medina area in the north is more commercial while the souk’s Semarine and Mouassine at the heart will give you more of the traditional bazaar experience.
