The wide golden sands of Oudayas Beach are popular with locals and tourists and there is also a sandy beach at Temara, on the southern outskirts of the city.

Things to Do

The Zoo of Rabat provides a fun day out for children and is home to around 1000 animals. The zoo is divided into 5 areas: the Atlas Mountains, the Desert, the Savannah, the Rainforest and the Wetlands to provide an appropriately simulated natural habitat for the various animals. The zoo also features a daily feeding programme, a restaurant and a fast food court.

Close to the river, the 17th century former Sultan's Palace now houses the Oudayas Museum and the charming Andalusian Gardens. The Archaeological Museum houses exhibits dating back to the Stone Age and a number of treasures from the ancient site of Volubulis.

Other landmark attractions include the impressive Bab Oudaia, a 12th century gateway to the Kasbah; the Hassan Tower and the ornate Mausoleum of Mohammed V.

Out and About

Stroll through the old streets of the Medina, lined with shops, cafes and artisan workshops; browse the spice market and soak up the authentic local atmosphere.

Closer to the Ocean, the UNESCO world heritage site of the Kasbah des Oudayas is a charming network of cobblestone streets with blue and white painted houses and picturesque ocean views.

Across the river, you can explore the winding alleyways in the traditional quarter of Sale and the walled ruins of an ancient roman city at Chellah Gardens.

Nearby Attractions

A short drive south of Rabat will bring you to Temara, where you can see the Grand Mosque, browse the markets, go surfing or relax on the sandy beaches.

Casablanca, home to the huge Hassan II Mosque is located approx 1 hours drive away. Here you can experience the contrasts of the old and the new quarters and explore the ancient Old Medina and the modern Habbous Souk.
