Banyan Tree Tamouda Bay, Morocco

August 11, 2020 Route Nationale 13, Oued Negro، Fnideq 93100, Morocco

After traveling throughout southern Spain to the cities of Córdoba, Granada, and the town of La Herradura, my mom and I drove to the port of Tarifa, the southernmost point of the Iberian peninsula across from the Strait of Gibraltar, and took a short, one hour ferry ride to Tangier, Morocco. From Tangier we embarked on a one and half hour drive to the Banyan Tree Tamouda Bay on the northern coast of Morocco. 

The hotel is in a relatively isolated region, so aside from a day trip to the incredible city of Chefchaouen, we mostly stayed at the Banyan Tree and explored the quiet beach, read under the bright blue skies, and ate delicious delicious Moroccan food from steaming tajines. The hotel was very quiet and we saw few other guests due to the fact that we visited during the off season in early March, and while some nights we wished it were a bit more lively, it was also nice to be able to experience the beauty of the hotel and beaches in solitude.

These photographs are solely from our time at Tamouda Bay, but the following posts will cover our visit to the famed blue city of Chefchaouen and our subsequent journey to the city of Marrakesh. Morocco is such a beautiful, colorful country, and my mom and I are already dreaming of our return.
