Map of Morocco - A Detailed Guide to the Kingdom's Geography.

Discover the enchanting Kingdom of Morocco, a North African gem nestled between the Atlantic Ocean and the Mediterranean Sea. Our interactive Map of Morocco highlights the country's diverse regions and key cities, offering travelers a visual guide to plan their Moroccan adventure.

Morocco is located in Northern Africa, bordering the Atlantic Ocean as well as the Mediterranean Sea. Most of its coastline borders the Atlantic, however, with just 200 kilometers or so—from the tip around the Tangier-Tetouan region to the eastern border of Algeria—bordering the Mediterranean. To get a sense of the topography of Morocco, regions vary from mountainous (in the northern and interior areas) to fertile plains for agriculture (in the coastal areas) to valleys with extreme climates (the farther inland and the closer to the Sahara, the hotter and more extreme it becomes).

This diverse topography contributes to Morocco's rich cultural tapestry and varied ecosystems. The Atlas Mountains, stretching from the southwest to the northeast, act as a natural barrier, influencing climate patterns and historical trade routes. The Rif Mountains in the north create a unique microclimate, supporting the growth of cannabis and contributing to the region's complex history. Meanwhile, the coastal plains have been the breadbasket of Morocco for centuries, supporting the growth of major cities and civilizations.
Although it isn't too hard to get from place to place within Morocco's most popular areas, travel outside of the coastal regions, particularly the desert can take a longer time than you might think as there are no freeways or autoroutes in this region. There are things to see and do in the eastern or southern, but getting to these attractions takes time. We hope you find this map of Morocco helpful!
The lack of extensive highway infrastructure in the desert regions adds to the sense of adventure for many travelers. It allows for a more immersive experience, where the journey becomes as important as the destination. Travelers can witness the gradual change in landscape, from the lush coastal areas to the stark beauty of the Sahara, experiencing the full spectrum of Morocco's geographical diversity.
