Top 10 Most Beautiful Beaches in Morocco - Part 5

The Top 10 Most Beautiful Beaches in Morocco

Cap des Trois Fourches dolphins

Cape des Trois Fourches 


The more photos I have seen of this incredible place, the more urge I had to write a separate post about it. If you have read the previous articles before you may know that I have originally included some words of Cap Des Trois Fourches in my Part 2 post where I write about another incredible beach the Charrana Beach becase they are about 50-80 kms away, but eventually, as the information which i could get to find about this place started to grow along with the incredible photos, I thought I will have to make this an alonestanding post.  

Hope you will like it.

Cap des Trois Fouches is a wild place and the only area which is closeby is the small fishing village which has a picturesque location and a totally laidback lifestyle and it’s called Tiboutet. You can get to see the fishing nets spread out everywhere and the marvellous fishes which get caught from the crystal clear waters of this area generally go to be sold in Melilla, the nearest big city in the area which very interestingly is under Spanish rule.

The beautiful cape goes in the sea 22 km long and it’s practically the end of the map: it’s some of the closest geographical points to Spain, apart from the Tangier peninsula. And it has a sight that is absolutely scenic. The whole region used to be volcanic back in the ancient times and the stone formations you can get to see here are just incredible! 

Also, you can get to see hordes of dolphins near the shores if you go diving!

The incredible rock formations make this place absolutely unique. On the right you can see the small port of Tiboutet

As for the accommodation, the easiest way to proceed is to get to Melilla, you can do this by plane from Spain or by train which go there from Tangier 3 times a day. The entrance procedure can get lenghty though. Another way to proceed is to have your base in Al Hoceima, that’s on the other side of the peninsula and about 80 -100 kms away and go there for a bit of an extra adventure. As Al Hoceima is some of the richest areas in charming beaches this will be a challenge, but if you take a look at all these beautiful photos, you will see that it’s well worth.

There number of tourists visiting this area is very low,as it’s practically far from everything. The highest number of visitors are generally from Melilla where there are plenty of nice accommodations and a pretty defined Spanish-Moroccan cuisine which is very worth tasting. But again if you don’t want to mess with entering and leaving Morocco several times a day, just have your base in Al Hoceima. Charrana also has a  camping that offers accommodation and if you are adventurous and want to learn more about the local lifestyle, for a little money, you can rent a house or a room in one of the fishermen houses of the charming Tiboutet.

No matter which way you choose, if you love nature and exceptional locations, then Cap des Trouis Fourches is definitely a place for you to visit!
