After a short flight from England to Agadir, you will see why so many people are choosing to come to Morocco now rather than other destinations like Spain or France.

We arrived about 6:30pm and as you walked off the plane, the heat just hits you. This time of the year, there is a lovely breeze blowing which take the edge off the heat, but it’s still 28 degrees at this time of night.

Some would say it’s too hot, but the nights are cooler making sleep easy, but the sun during the day if fantastic, ensuring the cold weather of England is left far behind.

You do, of course, need to take sun precautions, a good factor 30 cream and a hat are essential – getting sun burnt is just not a good idea. The African sun is hot and very direct so will burn you unless you take care.

Yesterday, we spent the day in Essaourira, a small but beautiful city on the coast, famed for its fishing and blue decor, and enjoyed a relaxed lunch in the sun, topping up the tan.

So get rid of the winter blues, jump on a plane and go to Morocco for a guaranteed sun tan
