Morocco is situated in the north western tip of Africa and is bordered by Mauritania and Algeria. Morocco's varied landscape includes four separate mountain ranges, green river valleys, sandy coasts, and enormous expanses of desert. The three most important mountain ranges are the Middle Atlas, the High Atlas, and the Anti-Atlas run parallel to each other from the northeast to the southwest. Morocco's highest peak is Jebel Toukbal at over 13,000. The High Atlas rivers give life to long river valleys. The Moroccan coastline, which faces both the Mediterranean and the Atlantic, offers excellent beaches and old Moroccan cities. In the southeast, Morocco's mountain ranges end with the expanse of the Sahara.
The climate, geography, and history of Morocco are closer to the Mediterranean than to Africa. To the north of the country are fine beaches, lush green valleys, and ancient cities. Further south are the beautiful Atlases Mountains and the Mediterranean atmosphere disappears into The Sahara. The weather on the coast is great for holidays for all year round, although cool and wet conditions are possible in the north in winter. Moroccan food is excellent and the national dish couscous, which is usually served with a lamb and vegetable casserole, called a tagine. Mint tea is a popular Moroccan drink but alcohol is generally available.
There are both costal and inland resorts. The major holiday resorts in Morocco are Agadir, Essaouira, Marrakech and Ouarzazate. Holiday flights to serve these resorts arrive in Agadir from Heathrow, Gatwick and Manchester and to Marrakech from Gatwick.
