Moulay Bousselham – Get To Know The Authentic Hidden Gem

Moulay Bousselham is a non-touristic city located halfway between Rabat and Tangier. It is a small town with only about 15,000 inhabitants. However, in summer, the number can insignificantly increase. This is because it is a popular area for Moroccans to spend their summer vacations.

The appealing aspect of Moulay Bousselham is the availability of affordable, charming accommodations right by the ocean. Many houses have stairs directly to the beach, providing the opportunity to witness breathtaking sunsets. But even besides the sunsets, it is just lovely to watch the Atlantic. Its strong waves splashing the small rocks in the front. Also, hearing the sound of the waves and the seagulls and smelling the fresh air with no one around you.
