Things to do in Bouznika
Plage de Bouznika stretches for five kilometres and is popular with local sunseekers, as the gold sand looks striking against the turquoise Atlantic Ocean. Rent a sun lounger for the day and order cocktails on demand. At low tide, you can peer into crystalline tidepools filled with shells, sea urchins and crabs.
Saddle up and enjoy a camel ride along the beach. Alternatively, surf lessons here are a great introduction to the sport. You can learn to surf on the small to medium-sized waves that break just offshore or sign up for lessons and or rent a board if you have experience.
Tee off at Bouznika Bay Golf Club, a beautiful course with ocean views. The fairways are beautifully maintained and lined with palm trees. Bouznika is also a great base for tee times at other signature Moroccan courses like Royal Golf Anfa.
Whether you’re craving pizza, sushi or traditional Moroccan cuisine, you’ll find plenty of places to satisfy your appetite in Bouznika. Local dishes like tagine cooked in earthenware pots and couscous topped with chicken and roasted vegetables are always an excellent options. Cool off with a glass of iced Moroccan mint tea.
