Relax on the Beach
Asilah is perfectly located on Morocco's Atlantic coast for excellent beach weather and spacious beaches. It's hard to forget this idyllic getaway is only 40 minutes away from the noise of Tangier.
Visit the Medina
Asilah's medina has been spectacularly preserved and remains completely intact. The atmopshere is much more relaxed here and shop owners tend to be more laid-back.
Palais de Culture
The Palace of Culture sits near the beach. At one point it was the home (one of many) of Er-Raissouli who used to force convicted murderers to jump onto the rocks 30m below.
Enjoy the Seafood
There are a wide range of quality restaurants in Asilah offering fresh seafood amongst other traditional Moroccan dishes. You can even find tapas here thanks to the strong Spanish influence!
Asilah Day Trip
It is a small town, which means that a day excursion to Asilah is plenty of time to discover everything it has to offer. The Medina is much smaller and quieter than the busy Medina in Tangier, and you will find lots of friendly locals who will be happy to talk to you here. The Medina is of course a maze, but it's a small maze, and if you get lost then you won't be for too long.
Despite being a tourist attraction, Asilah remains a somewhat unspoilt example of a traditional Moroccan town. Although an excursion from Tangier to Chefchaouen or Tangier to Tetouan is of course a necessity when visiting the North of Morocco, Asilah boasts a charm that other towns just cannot match given its cool sea breeze, typical Moroccan cafes and welcoming people.
