My favourite beach in Morocco

Paradise Beach, Asilah, Morocco

Asilah (or أصيلة، أرزيلة‎ in Arabic) is an attractive fortified town in northwest Morocco which still has all ramparts and gateworks fully intact. Dating back to 1500 BC when the Phoenicians used it as a base for trade, Asilah is now a popular seaside resort town, hosting annual music and arts festivals. Approximately 3 km south of Asilah lies Paradise Beach, a wonderful wide stretch of sand and surf. For some peace and quiet head to this tranquil and pristine spot which  really does live up to its name, especially if you have it all to yourself in the off season.
