Oualidia: hidden paradise in Morocco
Oualidia (pronounced “Walidia”) is a little coastal village in Moorocco. It is a stunningly picturesque little resort – a fishing port and lagoon beach, flanked by a kasbah and a royal villa. The Kasbah is seventeenth century, built by the Saadian Sultan El Oualid (after whom the village is named) as a counterweight and alternative to El Jadida, then held by the Portuguese. It is also in the centre of one of the richest birdlife habitats in Morocco and an important resting area for migrating birds in Spring and Autumn. The coastal wetlands, sands and saltpans, the jagged reefs and the lagoons of Sidi Moussa and Oualidia shelter a huge range of species – pink flamingoes, avocets, stilts, godwits, storks, waders, terns, egrets, and warblers.
Oualidia really deserves to be better known as a resort: its beach is excellent for surfing and windsurfing, the atmosphere is relaxed, and swimming is safe and easy.
You can break the journey with stops along the road to take pictures, smell ocean breeze and stretch your body. Once in Oualidia, you will explore the town. There are a wide variety of restaurants- why not try the fresh grilled sardines by the sea side!
Oualidia is a good choice for people who like to relax, surf, swim, eat and fish as well. Morocco Best sahara Tours promises to make your 1 Day Trip to Oualidia an enjoyable and a once-in-a life – time adventure.
