Marrakech for Families: The Chrifia Neighbourhood and Family Holidays in Marrakech Morocco

The Chrifia neighbourhood is one of the best parts of Marrakech for visiting families. Here are some of the many attractions and activities for family holidays in this part of the city.  

The Chrifia Neighbourhood

Located just 13 minutes by car along the R203, south-west of the Place Jemaa el-Fna, the Medina and other notable city-centre attractions, Chrifia is a quiet neighbourhood with a diversity of cafés, restaurants and a variety of recreational activities for both adults and children.

One of Chrifia’s main attractions for families, the Oasiria Water Park with its numerous water rides, pools, parkland and restaurant, is the perfect place for children of all ages to cool down and have some fun while Mum and Dad enjoy a little peace and quiet.

If your children enjoy action games, teaming up with them for a few hours’ worth of  chasing & zapping “enemies” at Marrakech Laser Games will be a perfect treat, while families attracted to solving puzzles and riddles will thoroughly enjoy testing their knowledge and skills to “earn their release” at the Enigma Escape Games complex.  

Alternatively, you can marvel at the stars and planets at the Astronomy Observatory, part of Atlas Golf’s Cultural Centre.

While there, you can (if your children are old enough) also take some time out to enjoy a quick 9-hole round of golf on the charming Atlas course.

Chrifia is also an excellent starting point for camel rides to the verdant oasis of La Palmeraie, where you can enjoy the atmosphere of this select, largely residential, upmarket neighbourhood whilst profiting from the shade of an estimated 150,000 palm trees.

There are, of course, many other activities to enjoy with the family in the centre of Marrakech, especially on the Place Jemaa el Fna, with its snake charmers, dance and acrobatic troupes; there are the myriad alleyways of the souks to explore, floral displays in a number of gardens to admire, carriage rides around the city and a variety of other visitor attractions.
