The hidden gem of the green lagoon

#Oualidia #Morocco


The most picturesque seaside town, we fell in love with Oualidia. Fatima, our host, was an absolute pleasure, she made us feel at home immediately and part of the community.

Upon arrival, she invited us to experience a traditional post-wedding celebration in her families home; it was so much fun to be included and experience the local culture.

The home is everything you imagine, a beautiful and cosy riad, and the pictures were spot perfect.


We enjoyed it so much we extended our stay for six nights.


The riad has everything you need; we cooked dinner a few nights, you are very close to all the beautiful fresh produce markets and local stores too.

The location is perfect, just a short walk from everything in Oualidia. We dined out every day and sampled all the local restaurants. You must visit the nearby hotel called Le Temps Perdu for a lazy lunch in the sun on the terrace and the most incredible view.


It's a hidden treasure with delicious food and wine.

Be sure to visit L'Hippocampe, Ostrea II and L'Initiale for a nice bottle of wine and more delicious food.


Fatima is a fabulous host, both Fatima and her family are very responsive, helpful and make you feel welcome. Fatima speaks excellent English and is a very inspirational young lady, and we loved sharing our life knowledge and experience with her too.

We were disappointed we missed out on her mother's cooking after reading all the rave reviews, but time did not permit.


I would highly recommend a stay at this beautiful riad and enjoy a few days in Oualidia exploring, taking in the sensational lagoon views and devouring all the fresh seafood and local cuisine.
