Set on the Atlantic coast near the northern tip of Morocco is Mehdia Beach, a hotspot for surfing. A lovely stretch of golden sand this is a place where there is always a buzz. There are several beach bars and even a water park on the sea front. Visitors to the beach are an eclectic mix of both international and Moroccan visitors which helps give the place an authentic feel.
Mehdia dates back to the Roman Empire, and you can see the first century remains of a castle, the Kasbah de Mehdia. The town is also famous for its fish and there are a number of good restaurants.
Surfers and body boarders come from all over the world to surf the waves here. The surfing is best when the tide is rising, and the waves range from one to 12 feet high.
Whilst most overseas visitors come here to surf there are plenty of other things to do. Just hang out on the beach and chilling is pretty popular but there is also the Sidi Boughaba Natural Reserve right behind Mehdia beach which is a great place to spot migrating birds as they travel between Europe and Africa.
