Escape to Sidi Kaouki

There is a town near to the cities of Essaouira and Agadir in Morocco that will captivate the imagination of visitors. It was named after a holy man, who some refer to as a teacher, who used to wander the land. If visitors go down to the ocean, they will see a small shrine that is in disrepair that was constructed in his honor, and there are still those who visit the shrine, viewing it as a pilgrimage site. While it did gain a little celebrity when its beach was used as a set for the second Sex and the City movie, not many people are aware of this gem in Morocco. Those who do know the town will quickly name two features that attract them, namely the near perfect weather all year round and its ideal water sport conditions.

Magnificent Mount Toubkal

Standing at an intimidating height of 4 167 meters, Toubkal is the highest peak in the Atlas Mountain range. It is located just outside of Marrakech, in the breathtaking Toubkal National Park. No-one is exactly sure when the first ascent of this peak took place, as the first date documented is 12 June 1923. Hubert Dolbeau, the Marquis de Segonzac and Vincent Berger were the first Europeans to climb Toubkal, but it is possible that the mountain had been ascended before them by Berber tribesmen while on hunting expeditions, but was never documented. Today it is a popular mountain climbing destination, and mountaineers from all over the world come to Morocco to take on this magnificent peak.
