Martil Beach

Martil Beach - Morocco
© Mohamed Haddi

Martil is Tetouan’s coastal resort town in the summer monts. The rest of the year it’s a university town which gives it a young, lively feel. The beach here is a long stretch of golden sand which face into the warm, blue waters of the Mediterranean. Beyond the town and along the coast high green mountains rise steeply from the coast providing a dramatic, scenic backdrop. To the back of the beach is a wide palm-lined promenade where you will find plenty of cafes and bars. The beach is clean, and the locals are known for their hospitality.

During the day football and sunbathing are the most popular activities on the beach, but at night, young people congregate around sunset and hang out on the beach until the small hours. The beach promenade is the centre of activity and has a very local vibe to it, as it is mostly university students who are there. There are a few night clubs in town, and Martil is known for its nightlife.

The beach and the water here can be very crowded in the summer, so you will have to get here early to find a good spot. There is a camping ground nearby, or you can find a reasonably-priced hotel, but you should book ahead in the summer. There are restaurants, but much of what they have is western style snack places. This town is designed for Moroccan travelers, as the rest of the world hasn’t fully discovered it yet.
