Visit Asilah! Reasons why you should definitely visit Asilah

Asilah is located along the Atlantic coast near Moulay in the north of the country. Situated on the outskirts of the Rif mountains, the two closest areas for outdoor activities are the Jebel Bouhachem nature reserve and the Talassemtane national park.

It is a small fishing village that has become increasingly popular in recent years for its beautiful beaches. Because of its location, Asilah has been a natural port for many peoples who have visited Morocco, including the Byzantines, Arabs, Normans, Portuguese, Phoenicians, Romans and Carthaginians. Perhaps the most influential culture in the small town was that of the Portuguese, who built ramparts, fortifications and walls around the town.

Asilah was not always as peaceful as it is today. The ramparts made it a wonderful haven for pirates in the 17th century. Several battles took place in and around the fortifications.
