Morocco Itinerary 14 days

Whatever time of year you choose, Morocco has something special to offer.

There are a number of important factors to take into account when planning your trip to Morocco. Morocco itinerary 14 days include both the desert and the coastlines of Morocco. Therefore, each place has its perfect time.

When is the best time to visit the Sahara Desert?

The best time to visit the Sahara desert is in autumn (September-December) and in spring (March-mid-May). During these two seasons, the heat in the desert is moderate so that you can travel comfortably.

Intermediate seasons also can provide ideal conditions for setting off in arid landscapes but keep in mind that unexpected sandstorms occur in the desert, especially in April, and that they are not pleasant to take.

No matter what time you decide to travel to the Sahara, be sure to pack some skin products to protect your skin and face from the harsh sun and swirling sands. They will also help keep you warm at night, when the temperature drops considerably, even during the hottest months.

When to visit to enjoy the coast?

Travelers head to the coastline of Morocco between June and August when rising temperatures bring perfect beach weather.

If you traveled to Morocco during the summer, you will enjoy the warmth beaches especially in El Jadida, Essaouira, and Agadir.

Though the summer is the perfect time to visit Morocco for swimming, it is not good for visiting the Desert.

As a result, the perfect time to enjoy Morocco itinerary 14 days, we advise Autumn or spring. This allows you to visit the desert and also the coastline cities. Also, this is the main reason why we omit swimming from the program since you cannot swim on the beach during these two seasons.
