Discover Casablanca with Checkin Accommodation

Home to Morocco's primary international airport, Casablanca is the main gateway into the country for many visitors and often their first taste of the country. This city is an industry and business powerhouse, and compared to the exotic charms of Marrakesh and Fes, it can't compete. There is a European touch to much of its architecture, and the city has a modern swagger that is unseen in other parts of the country.

Although Casablanca's tourist sights and attractions may not be as obvious as those elsewhere, you will find some gems if you dig a little deeper. The medina district is a charming area and much smaller (and easier to navigate) than those elsewhere. And the colossal Hassan II Mosque is top of the list on most sightseeing checklists.

Though not as atmospheric as other Moroccan cities, Casablanca is the best representation of the modern nation. This is where money is being made, where young Moroccans come to seek their fortunes and where business and the creative industries prosper.

The number of construction projects currently under way here is simply extraordinary – major redevelopments include those at Pl Mohammed V and the Parc de la Ligue Arabe, and new public buildings include the Grand Théâtre de Casablanca.

The city's handsome Mauresque buildings, which meld French-colonial design and traditional Moroccan style, are best admired in the Downtown area. Visitors who spend time there, in the Quartier Habous and in the beachside suburb of Ain Diab are sure to get into the local swing of things and realise that this old pirate lair is looking towards the future, embracing the European-flavoured urban sophistication that has underpinned life here for the past century.

  1. Hassan II Mosque - On the shoreline, just beyond the northern tip of Casablanca's medina (old city), the Hassan II mosque dominates the entire city. Finished in 1993, it is the second largest mosque in the world, covering two hectares in size with the world's tallest minaret (200 meters high). The prayer hall can accommodate 25,000 worshippers, while the courtyard (which boasts a retractable roof) can fit another 80,000. Astonishingly intricate decoration covers every centimeter of surface. The location, right on the tip of the rocky bay above the ocean, is thoroughly dramatic. Non-Muslims can visit the mosque on guided tours, which begin at the mosque's western entrance several times per day.
  2. Medina - Although Casablanca's old city district may not have as much exotic atmosphere as the medinas of Fes and Marrakesh, the maze-like tumble of alleyways still hides much to discover. Authentic tradesmen sell their wares to shoppers, with the butcher, the baker, and the candlestick maker all accounted for. It's a rambling and ramshackle neighborhood with an authentic residential feel, and a great place to experience the pulse of Casablanca life. There are also some interesting holy men koubbas (shrines) in the medina's southern section.
  3. Place Mohamed V - Place Mohamed V is the central plaza of Casablanca. It is home to many of the city's important official buildings, including the main post office, Palace of Justice, Prefecture, French consulate, and the main Bank of Morocco. The building facades all sport the neo-Moorish style that French Resident-General Lyautey planned out for the city as he set about modernizing Casablanca in the early 20th century. The square has a central fountain and well-tended gardens. During the evenings, it is a local favorite spot for promenading.
  4. Corniche - Casablanca's Corniche (beachfront district) in the Ain Diab suburb, is the city's vortex for those who want to see-and-be-seen. Much of the shoreline is now home to luxury hotels and restaurants. During the day, the many beach clubs here do a roaring trade with sun worshipers lapping up the rays and splashing in the club swimming pools. Further along the shoreline is the public beach. On sunny weekends, this is a great spot for people watching, with plenty of local families heading to the sand for picnicking and promenading.
  5. Cathedral du Sacre Coeur -This graceful cathedral was built in the 1930s, and its architecture is a harmonious blend of both European and Moroccan style. Unfortunately, it has been left to wither in the past few decades, and is now in need of serious restoration. But even in its current dilapidated state, the structure is still beautiful. If you're lucky, the guardian will allow you inside where you can capture a sense of this building's past glory. Nearby is the Notre Dame de Lourdes, a church lit by a vast stained glass window covering more than 800 square meters.
  6. Central Market - Casablanca's bustling central market is a must for tourists who want to throw themselves into the midst of city life. Right in the city center, the market is where locals come to buy and sell - be it housewives bartering for vegetables, or grocers yelling out their special deals. It's a great opportunity for photographers and fun for everyone else. You'll find everything here from plastic bowls to Morocco's famous slippers. You never know, you might be able to snag a few bargains for yourself during the visit.
  7. Mohammedia - This sleepy seaside city offers some fine beaches, and is a relaxing alternative to staying in Casablanca. Although home to Morocco's second largest port, Mohammedia and its tranquil charms haven't been affected by the industry. The little medina is a delight to wander through, while the New Town area is attractively laid out, with grand palm-tree-lined boulevards. On the coast, it's all about the beach. Cafes and restaurants here bustle with activity on summer weekends when half of Casablanca seems to escape to Mohammedia's sand.
  8. Safi - Safi has been an important port since Roman times, but it was the Almohade rulers who surrounded the city with grand ramparts and made it an intellectual and spiritual center. The Portuguese occupied the city in 1508 and added to the architecture by building the stately Dar el Bahar Fortress on the shoreline - now the town's most recognizable monument. Safi is Morocco's most famous ceramic center, and once you've visited the fortress, Safi's medina is a great place to spend an afternoon. Pottery Souk and the National Ceramic Museum are the old town's star attractions.
  9. Oualidia - This charming seaside village has a chilled-out vibe that's perfect if you're worn out after visiting Morocco's imperial cities. The lovely beach and the Saadian era Kasbah (fortress district) are reason enough for a trip here, but for many others Oualidia is all about the oysters. Oualidia's oyster beds are famed throughout the country. Local restaurant menus list oysters and plenty of other seafood pulled fresh from the sea that day, making the town a highlight for any traveling foodie.
  10. Azemmour- When tourist boards started promoting Morocco's Atlantic coastline, they somehow left little Azemmour off the list. But this village has a history stretching back to Punic times, and a wonderful handful of sites showcase that long tenure. The adobe ramparts encircling the medina area are an obvious attraction and they connect to the Kasbah(fortress) that dates from the 16th century.The beach is also one of the best along the Atlantic coast - and is a well-kept secret. Indeed, half of Azemmour's charm lies in the fact that nobody else seems to stop off here.
  11. El Jadida- For a small town, El Jadida is packed full of interesting things to do and is surrounded by beautiful strips of sand, perfect to flop onto when you've dosed up on history. In the Citadel area, built by the Portuguese, you can scramble up onto the walls for excellent sea views and then visit the old prison, which also once functioned as the town's synagogue. Also in the citadel area, check out the atmospheric cisterns, which date from the 16th century and were used as a filming location in the famous Orson Welles' movie Othello.

There are several options for public transportation around Casablanca, and Morocco in general, which include trains, trams, buses and taxis, both Grands Taxis for long journeys as well as shared trips within town and out to the suburbs and Petits Taxis which only operate within the city limits.

The train system within Morocco is one of the best that Africa has to offer. Trains are convenient, safe, fast, comfortable and fairly inexpensive. 1st Class is preferable as it is barely more expensive than 2nd Class and it gets the traveller a reserved seat on all trains except for the one to the airport. The major train station that provides services within the city of Casablanca is called Casa Voyageurs. However, Casa Port, the other main station in Casablanca has recently been rebuilt and enlarged and more trains have been routed there, including the airport train which uses it as its terminus. Visit the ONCF website for information about travel outside of Casablanca, including timetables, routes, fares, rules and regulations.

There is also a brand new Tramway system in Casablanca for travel on a 32 km network within the city and after its huge success, Line1 is being extended southwards and work on a 2nd line has already started.

           Traveling by bus around Morocco can be a great means of transportation, but figuring out how to do it correctly is not always easy. There are many companies, plenty of routes, and various styles of buses ranging widely in price. Casablanca has many bus terminals, some of which are used by various companies and other that house only one. However, the safest and best company for arriving and departing Casablanca is the national company, the CTM, which has its own station in the centre of town in Rue Léon l’Africain.

           The main type of taxi travelling around major cities in Morocco is the shared taxi or Grand Taxi. In Casablanca this is often a large, off white Mercedes, and will take up to six passengers to various other towns or to the airport. They also ply for hire within the city limits and out to the suburbs using pre-defined routes. The old Mercedes are being slowly replaced with 7 seater people carriers right now, which are far more comfortable. For travel within Casablanca only are the “Petits Taxis” which can be easily identified by the signs around the luggage racks and their red colour.
