Nestled in the Atlas Mountains, Paradise Valley is a local secret that few tourists and travelers get to experience.
Legend has it that a German couple desperately searching for a cure to their illness spent a few months in the valley, during which they were miraculously cured. Since then the region has been known as Paradise Valley, and once you witness the natural beauty for yourself we're sure you'll understand why.
Think palm trees, red rock landscapes and sheltered crystal blue pools for swimming.... or if you're brave enough dive in like the locals do in the video below!
The drive to Paradise Valley takes forty minutes total, thirty minutes in and just before we get there we make a quick stop at a café high in the mountains for morning tea snacks including traditional Moroccan mint tea. Soon after we arrive in the heart of the valley, and you will soon realise why we call it Paradise.
After that the day is yours. Paradise Valley is a long stretch of rock landscapes and natural swimming pools so whilst we hike a little to make sure you get to experience the furthest and most secret pool in the valley, this is a day to experience the true beauty of Morocco.
The days ends with a tajine dinner, cooked from fresh local produce and prepared in the mountains.
Rest your feet, fill your stomachs and enjoy a relaxing local tea before waving goodbye to Paradise and returning to the comfort of the surf house.
The day costs 30€ per person for four people (minimum) or more.
