Sidi Ifni & Mirleft Photography Morocco

March 01, 2012  •  Leave a Comment

Sidi Ifni and Mirleft are two small fishing towns in the South of Morocco.  Sidi Ifni was a Spanish colony not long ago and many people still speak Spanish today.  Sidi Ifni appears to be the end of the road for most of the hoards of European campervans as further south lies Western Sahara and mainly only 4wd accessible beaches.  There are many good surfing beaches along this stretch of coastline.  We found a great place to stay near some rocky coves just North of Mirleft.


Legzira Plage Photography Morocco

Here are a series of dawn and dusk shots taken at Legzira Plage which is about 10km north of Sidi Ifni.  You can see the view out of our room in one of the shots.  None of the small hotels at the beach have constant electricity so we just had about 3 hours in the evening - not always constant as the generator cut out.  It was a small price to pay as this beach has to be one of the worlds most beautiful, it would certainly come straight into our top ten that we've visited!


Tafraoute and the Anti Atlas Photography Morocco

The drive from Ait Benhaddou took us on the main road towards Agadir and then we travelled over a seires of spectacular mountain passes (the road wasn't on our map - but it was tarmacced, well the Moroccon version of....) into the town of Tafraoute in the Anti Atlas Mountains.  Tafroute is a lovely village surrounded on all sides by Granite mountains.  We spent a great few hours exploring teh granite boulders nearby.  There is a belgiun artist who has painted some of them in bold colour - red, green and of course powder blue.  I'm not so sure it should be considered art or vandalism, to my mind it spoilt a truly magnificent landscape?
