The Medina of Chefchaouen is one of the most beautiful sights I’ve ever seen. Both during the day or at night it is like being in a fairytale. We took quite a detour from our way from Tangier to Rabat to go there because I heard such beautiful things about it. None of these were exaggerated. The town is certainly... More

It's a lovely clean old city. The blue buildings in the narrow alleyways make the place feel cool. The shop owners don't try to hassle you to buy things, giving you a chance to just look around. The goats cheese sold in the old medina is absolutely delicious. We bought some, took it back to our hotel and had it... More

This blue city is an absolute must. It is the easiest of all Medina's to navigate and has a feeling of calmness compared to the others. It may be because you feel as though you are walking in the bottom of an empty swimming pool or the fact that we were hassled less, but the cleanliness also adds to the... More

It was a pleausure to visit the village, because it's really easy to get there and park you car (someone will take care of it only for a tip). Recommended 100%!

Wonderful scenic journey (3.5hrs each way) saw some beautiful scenery. Chefchaouen is amazing. The people are so friendly and prices for Moroccan goods so cheap in comparison with Marrakech in particular. Great for photos and exploring. A must do !!

Known by The Blue Pearl, Chefchaouen is a small town with all of the street, all of the wall in blue. And this is also a kingdom of wild cat. I don't know by how but there are many cat there. The cats are feeded by the Marocan. They leave the food outside their door and the cats eat, live... More

If you're going to Morocco you should consider a couple of days here. It's a lovely town in the mountains and a great place to relax.

My sister and I just loved our few days in Chefchaouen. It obviously caters for tourists but maintains some authentic atmosphere and local colour, like the vegetable market on Thursdays and many traditional shops and crafts in the medina. The scenic location and more laid-back approach than the better-known Moroccan destinations make it a relaxing place to be. There were... More

We kicked off our 2 week trip to Morocco here. It was a gem. The town is gorgeous (all blue) and the vibe is really laid back. The town is easy to explore and very safe. You need about 2 to 3 days. Amazing hiking all around it. We used CTM to continue on to Fes via bus (about 3... More
