Journey to Erfoud in Morocco

Erfoud doesn't have a whole lot to offer a tourist. It's really close to the desert and thus experiences regular blasts of sand tearing through the streets. It has two main attractions: the date festival and Erfoud's marble industry.

Accommodation

There are a number of hotels still left over from the days when the town had a busy dune-trip trade. Prices vary to suit all budgets and the cheapest form of transport in and out of the city is by grand taxi or bus. Check out the complete guide to hotels, luxury hotels, villas, self-catering and apartments & studio's in Erfoud.

Cuisine

If you're going to get a meal in Erfoud, you should make a point of trying a traditional Moroccan specialty called kalia. It's a mutton or kid stew flavored with over 40 spices served with egg, vegetables and parsley. Have a look at our complete restaurant guide.

Getting Around

Most CTM buses pass through Erfoud to Merzouga. Near the post-office is the grand taxi pick up point and to get to Tinerhir you can take one of two private lines leaving at 11:30 and 15:00. Check our complete guide to transport in Morocco.
