Asilah, Morocco


Photo by Alfredo De Simone

The fortified village of Asilah (also spelled Assilah) is a great base for family travelers touring northwest Morocco. Not only is this seaside town ideally positioned, Asilah boasts great beaches and offers a soft intro to both food and culture. Situated on Morocco's north Atlantic coast, Asilah is less than 1 hour from Tangier and just 90 minutes from the bird sanctuary at Moulay Bousselham. The sandy beaches to the north and south are easily accessed and safe for swimming. The wee whitewashed medina is easy to navigate. The small, but thriving, artist community adds a touch of color. Ties to a long Spanish dominion are omnipresent - blue doors, wrought iron windows and Spanish cuisine. What's more, this tranquil port town has far fewer faux guides than most Moroccan cities.
