Morocco Holidays

Rabat is quickly developing a reputation as the city destination of choice for those looking to experience a different side to Morocco. The capital’s modern, palm-lined boulevards contrast beautifully with the remnants of the city’s ancient past, while local restaurants serve mouth-watering food and have a reputation for excellence. For culture lovers, an internationally-renowned art scene is hitting new heights. Music lovers will also find that the city hosts a dazzling array of festivals and that there’s a bubbling underground music scene, too. Shoppers will love Rabat’s traditional markets, while those looking to get out and about can head along the coast and try their hand at surfing or a variety of other water sports. With a package holiday to Rabat with Qatar Airways Holidays, you can explore all this vibrant capital has to offer, make the most of its sun-kissed Mediterranean climate, and delight in this stunning stretch of Atlantic coastline, without a worry in the world.

  • Stroll through the city’s Kasbah of the Udayas, where the walls are adorned with Morocco’s iconic blue paint and it’s possible to spend the afternoon sat outside one of the many traditional cafés, watching the world go by.
  • Visit the Hassan Tower – evidence of the key role Rabat has played throughout Morocco’s history and home to the remains of what would have been the largest mosque in the world. • Explore the wonders of the Rabat medina – the city’s principal market and a great place to pick up some holiday treats. Unlike some of Morocco’s larger markets, this is very much a local affair, so prepare yourself for a truly authentic experience.
  • Book a holiday to Rabat with Qatar Airways Holidays in September to experience the world-famous Chellah Jazz festival. Here, you’ll find some of the biggest names on the international jazz scene playing in spectacular surroundings.
  • Along with the city’s central beach, there are a number of coastal hotspots situated just outside of the city limits. Explore Morocco’s Atlantic coastline and try your hand at some of the many water sports on offer.
  • Visit Rabat in June for the Meawazine Festival – an annual extravaganza hosted by the Moroccan government. Previous acts include Kanye West, Whitney Houston, and Mariah Carey, so you’re sure to enjoy a big-name headliner.
