While Morocco is a land of both bustling cities and wind-swept deserts, there’s a side to it that’s oft missed by those lost in the country’s lively souks and resorts. Pristine waters hiding in secret valleys, sprawling untouched beaches and hospitable cultures ignored by decades of turbulent conquest are some of the lesser known Moroccan treasures - each one of these discoveries has inspired writers, painters and travellers who’ve chanced upon them over the years. Discover a new side to Morocco as you travel from the coast to the hidden heart of the Berber on this short but rewarding trip.
