Welcome to Moulay Bousselham
Though inundated by holidaymakers in high summer, the small town of Moulay Bousselham is marvellously tranquil for the rest of the year. The sweeping beach, with its golden sand, is one of the most attractive on the North Atlantic coast, although its strong currents and crashing waves can be dangerous. The protected lagoon is one of the country's most important bird habitats, attracting twitchers from across the globe. If you have a car, it's a great place to chill for a few days.
The town is named after a 10th-century Egyptian saint who is commemorated in one of the koubbas (shrines) that line the slope down to the sea, guarding the mouth of the river.
