You have decided on Marrakech but when is the best time to visit the ‘pink city’? Well, as they say, you pay your money and take your choice.
As the charts below indicate, even sun worshippers will find the heat of summer overpowering, driving them to look for shade and water. In mid winter, by contrast, even though the sky is blue you’ll be glad of a coat in early morning and after dusk.
The most popular months for the majority of tourists are between October and April because this is when temperatures are most agreeable and vegetation at its most colourful best; bougainvillea and oleaders are in flower from December to May and the orange season is at its height in January and February.
Choosing your date depends a lot on what you’re planning to do. If walking, golfing or just sightseeing, you’ll be glad if the weather is not too hot. On the other hand, if relaxation is your thing then the hottest months will appeal, especially if you have access to a swimming pool and air conditioning (both of which are available at les Borjs de la Kasbah).
The hustle, bustle and heat of Marrakech can be overwhelming in the height of summer but for some this is what Marrakech is all about. Summer rain, when it falls, often comes in short heavy downpours and grey skies seldom last for more than a day.
Winter rainfall, low, of course, by European standards, can last a while longer but it is rare to experience more than a couple of days of cloudy or wet weather and daytime temperatures are generally very pleasant.
Whenever you choose to visit, our 5 star Marrakech hotel, Les Borjs de la Kasbah, provides a perfect oasis of calm and luxury in the heart of this captivating city.
