Choosing the Best Time to Visit Morocco

With desert, mountains and sea – Morocco’s diverse landscapes mean climate varies greatly by region. Figuring optimal times for honeymoons needs understanding the country’s microclimates:

The Imperial Cities like Marrakech bask on the northern edge of the Sahara Desert. Here, April-May then mid-September-October tend to offer peak weather – reliably sunny days without intense heat or cold nights.

In the High Atlas Mountains, temperatures cool a few degrees, making summertime hiking still enjoyable. By November, prepare for crisp mornings and ski season through March.

Morocco’s Atlantic Coast stays pleasingly warmer, although strong winds or storms occur more likely from December-February. For the best sunshine without humidity, target spring and early autumn.

Generally the spring (mid-March to mid-June) and fall (mid-September to October) across Morocco offer peak comfort for sight-seeing: comfortably warm days and cooler nights.

As well, bear in mind cultural considerations around choosing travel dates. The major Islamic holidays of Eid Al-Fitr and Eid Al-Adha dictate when cities empty and rates rise at remaining accommodation. School summer holidays equally spike demand especially Marrakech and the coastal resorts. For quieter visits with better prices, late spring and early autumn remain ideal.
