Within the city itself there is a wonderful sand beach frequented by locals
called Ain Diab, many facilities are here. All in total there are five
beaches within the city area, all easily accessible by public transport.
From south to north they are:
Plage Madame Choual and Plage Lalla Meryem - - Rarely used
except by locals.
Diab - Along this beach you will find most of the beach facilities,
from local cafes to international fast food such as KFC. From Café Nzaha to the
Blue Marlin, and don't forget the surf clubs! A the right hand, northern,
end of the beach itself there is a rocky outcrop on which there are many shops,
restaurants and several beach clubs offering pools and services for those
wanting to have a beach resort experience, in the city and without staying over.
The kon-tiki, Club des Clubs, Miami Beach, Topicana club, Tahiti and Paradise
club are the main ones. There are even two actual hotels here being Hotel Riad
Essalam, Karam Hotel and Hotel Beau Rivage.
During the winter off season people do not bath at the beach, but there are
still plenty of local families going for a picnic or to take a donkey ride on
Plage de Ain Sebaa - The northern end of Ain Diab is actually Ain Sebaa,
and here you will find additional facilities and restaurants
Plage de petite Zenata
Not that small, this beach is about 500m long and
with locals. Check out the pottery and you will
find other semi-industrial buildings inland, including
metal works and construction company suppliers.
But the beach itself is peaceful and quiet sands.
