Additional Location Information
Oualidia lies in the centre of one of the richest birdlife habitats in Morocco and is an important resting area for migrating birds in Spring and Autumn. The coastal wetlands, sands and saltpans, the jagged reefs and the lagoon of Oualidia shelter a huge range of species - pink flamingoes, avocets, stilts, godwits, storks, waders, terns, egrets, warblers and many others.Oualidia is in the Doukkala-Abda region of Morocco. Described on many websites in glowing terms, it is a stunningly picturesque little resort - a fishing port and magnificent beaches on the Atlantic Ocean and a wide, curving and beautiful lagoon beach. Today, most Moroccans know Oualidia for its seafood as well as its beaches. Fishermen bring in their catch – sole, dorada, lobsters, spider crabs, squid - throughout the day, and will sell it to you then and there. Morocco's first oyster farm was launched here in 1957 and nowadays harvests some 200 tons a year, much of which is sold locally – and very cheaply! Beach-side barbecue specialists will prepare a delicious meal for you right on the beach. Or you can eat in one of the excellent seaside restaurants, which, naturally, specialise in fish.

Modern Glory overlooking the lagoon and the ocean
This place is very slick. All white modern, spacious. Some parts are a little worn, but the overall experience and the view is just phenomenal. It's a bit of a hike to the beach if you don;t have a car, but doable. Private, secluded, a bit of noise from the road during the day but just serene otherwise. Have Karim bring you a seafood feast and grill it up. You'll need to speak some French...

Spacious villa in a good location, Oualidia is a great place!
Out of season, at least, Oualidia is a very pleasant place, if you can handle the misogyny of the local population! It was tough at times for my girlfriend and myself as men stared on the beach, etc. And that is before any attempt at swimming costumes egads!
But Fresh line caught fish from the local fishermen on the beach, fresh mussels and urchins from the rocks, or from the boys on the beach, an oyster farm 30 minutes walk away mean food is good. There is a crazy local Souk that you have to visit, tooth pulling and chicken slaughtering sections at your discretion.
The sheltered bay is a special thing for swimming on this coast, with the wild atlantic ocean beautiful but not so restful for a dip. Surfing is really constant and pleasant, funnelled through the inlet into the bay, there every day for those who seek it.
The accommodation was pretty basic, especially in terms of cookware, but there was enough, and we had a great time. The apartment is part of a large and attractively maintained complex, the nicest in the area. I can imagine it gets a bit busy in season, but we had a lovely time...
Paradise only 3 hours from Rabat, ou work place.
We just had the best time in the Villa which has a great location and is very comfortable and we could even watch the kids swim while we had our sun downers and cooked all the fabulous seafood that is available. What a view, what a lagune( where children and adults can swim safely unlike the rest of the coast), what a beach that goes on and on for miles. We will be back, soon and often we hope. Thank you Ian for letting us enjoy with all the comfort needed.
Great setting, terrific accommodation
We had a lovely time. The pool, the accommodation, the sea and the local restaurant were just what we wanted.
A great property and location to get away from it all
A stunning, stepped, beautifully landscaped, multi-villa complex, overlooking an idyllic, tranquil, sandy Moroccan bay sheltered from the wild atlantic. The facilty itself is somewhat spartan with limited self-catering amenities and mod-cons and no electronics to distract. But with a swimming pool almost at your doorstep, a family friendly restaurant on the property, heaps of fab sea food and traditional restaurants down the hill, on the beach, or any number of fishermen willing to personally cater for you with their day's catch - you won't want to cook; if you do, the lost-in-time town of Qualidia is just up the hill for supplies: Now that's an experience. A 50 min car trip to nearest significant town - Safi, will find you the best ever ceramics and the freshest grilled sardines to die for.
Generally a great place to chill out in.
