Tiznit Province, Morocco

Legzira Beach

Rocky Atlantic beach home to two stunning stone arches. 

In between Mirleft and Sidi Ifni can be found Morocco’s most unique beach.

Like its other Atlantic counterparts, the 8 km-long stretch of Legzira Beach is windy, rocky, and expansive. What sets Legzira apart, however, are its two mammoth stone arches. Naturally formed after years of erosion, these sedimentary giants jut out into the perpetually crashing waves and are accessible during low-tide.

Being a haven for European para-gliders and surfers, the bongo drums and wetsuits manifest themselves a little ad nauseam, but through the Atlantic mists scraps of Moroccan life, like donkeys and fisherman, can still be found.

There are two relatively inexpensive hotels on the beach where visitors can stay.
