Morocco's interior is at its best in spring (mid-March to May), when the country is lush and green, followed by autumn (September to November), when the heat of summer has eased. At other times, don’t underestimate the extremes of summer heat and winter cold, particularly in the High Atlas, where snowcapped peaks persist from November to July.
The resort Essaouira is best from April to October with air temp. between 25 - 30 cooled by the constant Atlantic breeze.
The region or Dakhla can be visited all year around but the summer temperatures can be extreme so we advice the best time to travel from Sept to May.
