Beach in Morocco: when to go to enjoy the good weather?
When to go to make the most of the good weather and the Morocco beach? We advise you to go to this North African country during the shoulder seasons, i.e. spring and autumn. Summer can indeed be very hard and display scorching temperatures, while winter does not allow swimming in the Atlantic in particular. Thus, favor the months of March, April, May and June, then the months of September, October and November. During these periods, the temperature is around 24 degrees Celsius on average, and the sea water is relatively warm.
