Morocco: Winter Sun
North Africa's Arabian Arcadia
With almost unlimited sunshine all the year round and even winter temperatures that exceed those of the average British summer, you will find plenty of opportunities to soak up some winter sun in Morocco. Marrakesh in winter is usually warm and sunny, with average day-time temperatures in the low 20s °C. However, nights can be cold, especially between November and February. With its miles of wonderful sandy beaches, both on its the Mediterranean and Atlantic coasts, you will not be short of places to relax and enjoy the winter sunshine. Temperatures on the coast are similar but are moderated by coastal breezes. What little rain there is generally falls in winter, but can occur at any time of year. Travelling to Morocco during the winter months can be economical and less crowded too, as the peak tourist season is during July and August. The exception to this, of course, is over the Christmas and New Year period. Overall, Morocco is a good destination for a winter sun holiday.
