Guest Post: Top 4 Instagram-Worthy Spots in Morocco

Morocco is full of vibrancy, life, color, fragrant spices, and so many beautiful spots. This is
why it is difficult to put together a list of the most Instagram-worthy spots in
Morocco, however, with research, we have come up with a list of the cities with so many picturesque spots, you’ll have plenty of options for photo ops that can add color to your Instagram feed.

1. The Sahara Desert

You simply cannot spend any time in Morocco without visiting the Sahara Desert. This
desert is simply out of this world and is the perfect destination for those who love nothing
more than to get snap-happy. With the harsh sun beating down on you, caravans of
camels appearing over the horizon and the sheer unimaginable size of the desert this
destination is perfect for capturing unique photos.

2. The Souks in Marrakesh

The souks (markets) in Marrakesh are a must-visit destination thanks to the atmosphere,
the wide array of goods that are for sale along with the spice mountains and the colorful
lanterns. This is the ideal place to get that Instagram photo of you admiring all the intricate lanterns, colorful carpets, and silver tea sets.  Make use of the cheap deals to Morocco and head to one of the local souks. Please note that some market stalls have signs that ask you not to take photographs so be respectful and look for a different angle– there are many.

3. Chefchaouen

Located in the Northwest of Morocco and also known as ‘Chaouen’ Chefchaouen is widely
known for its buildings that have been painted in different shades of blue. Founded back in
1471 this place is remarkable. This mountain village that has an old-world feel is the ideal
destination if you want to take a few photographs. However, you may want to head for the
city as you really will be spoiled for choice here as much of it is coated in blue paint so you
may end up taking more photographs than you need! With red roofs that complement the
blue, Chefchaouen is a great place to get snap-happy and enjoy a good meal.

4. Legzira Beach

While Morocco is full of deserts, mountains and vibrant markets it’s also home to a very
picturesque beach. Legzira Beach is not very well-known among tourists but it is quite wild
and desolate which makes it the ideal Instagrammable location. With some impressive sea
arches and the long sandy beach if you would like to take a few photographs this beach is
one of the best places to be. Be sure to keep an eye on the tide as it may well creep in and
leave you a little stranded if you’re not careful.

Morocco is full of amazing places that will have you snap-happy from the vast and
heated Sahara Desert to the Souks in Marrakesh. The blue city of Chefchaouen is another
totally Instagrammable location as is the beautiful Legzira Beach. Morocco is home to
some stunning places but we think the above 4 are the ones most worth adding to your Instagram feed.

I love the images. Very pleasant article. Also taking Moroccan cooking class is a worthy experience as well as trying the Moroccan Hammam (spa).
