Morocco enjoys a Mediterranean climate, where winter is generally mild and summer hot. Thanks to a high brightness and temperatures that can reach 20 ° C in winter, Morocco is a destination that can be discovered throughout the year, although the weather during the summer can be very hot, with temperatures a little hard to bear.


One of the characteristics of the Moroccan climate is the very noticeable difference between day and night, as well as between winter and summer.


In the interior the climate is drier while in the mountains the climate becomes continental with cold and snowy winters.

On the Mediterranean coast the climate is quite mild in winter, with some rain, while summers are quite dry, hot and sunny. In January, maximum temperatures hover around 16-18°C, while in summer they are around 30°C.

On the Atlantic coast, the climate is almost identical to 22 ° C in Agadir in January and 30 ° C in August. The sea water can be a little cool for swimming even in summer, never exceeding 21 ° C, but this allows you to mitigate the hot summer days.

In Marrakech, the weather is warmer, especially in summer when temperatures can exceed 40 ° C. To cool off a bit, you can reach the mountainous regions of the Atlas or the Rif, where you can make beautiful hikes. Rainfall in summer is very scarce.


The mountainous regions should be avoided in winter, as they can be cold and there is often snow. There are also ski res orts in the Atlas Mountains, including the resort of Oukaïmden located 80 km from Marrakech.
