When to go

Morocco is best during spring or autumn. The weather is warm and pleasant, unlike the cold temperatures and snow of winter, or the scorching heat of summer. The coastal regions can be visited year-round. In the winter they are pleasantly mild, while in the summer they bask in temperatures hovering around the mid-20Cs.

During the winter months (November to February) daytime temperatures in the south are still mild, although the evenings can get surprisingly cold. The north of Morocco experiences wet and cloudy winters and the Atlas Mountains can be exceptionally cold, sometimes retaining their snow-capped peaks until as late as July.

Except for the coastal regions, it's best to avoid the scorching summer temperatures, especially in the Sahara.
