Top Wellness Retreats in Morocco

It doesn’t take long to understand why the Beatles in the 1960s came to Morocco in search of inspiration. For most of its history, the Moroccan coast has been a magnet for arty bohemians. From the Beatniks of Tangiers to the hippies of Essaouira, culture-seeking eccentrics have always found a home here, back when such freedom was not available in the West. 

This Maghreb country is not only lauded for its rich history and culture, but it is also bestowed with magnificent deserts such as Erg Chebbi, staggering mountains, and some of the best surfing spots in places like Essaouira and Agadir

Whether you prefer to stretch out on the rooftop of a swanky riad overlooking the majestic mountains or feel the adrenaline rush as you surf the untamed waves, there is an eclectic range of activities to indulge in when you think of Morocco as your detox getaway. Below check out our compiled list of top wellness retreats in Morocco.
