What if we told you there's a tropical oasis that stays sunny all year round? What if we told you its gentle climate means you can surf, sea swim and do yoga on the beach almost every day of the year? What if we told you that place was just a 25-minute drive from the vibrant city of Agadir on the Morrocan coast – a mere four-hour flight from the UK with some airlines? You probably wouldn't believe us, would you?
Well you're wrong: this place exists – it's called Paradis Plage, and it's the ultimate retreat for beach bums, active adventurers and travellers looking for a little more from their next sunny getaway.
Set on a stunning 5km beach against the backdrop of the Atlas Mountains, Paradis Plage is the first luxurious eco-resort in Morocco to offer the irresistible combination of yoga, spa and surf. Let the sun warm your body and the scenery warm your soul as you stretch out on the beach, hike in the mountains and play in the water before kicking back in the hotel's luxurious spa.
Then, when you get hungry, hit one of Paradis Plage's four restaurants to grab a high-quality, locally sourced bite to eat. Many of the vegetables served are organically farmed in the Agadir region, and any meat and fish on the menu comes from trusted local suppliers. There are great veggie, vegan, gluten-free and dietary options available around the resort, too.
But it's not just your guest experience that matters to Paradis Plage – it's an incredibly eco-forward resort, too. For four consecutive years in 2016, 2017, 2018 and 2019 it won a Green Key – a label that acknowledges the destinations commitment to the environment based on its management of water, energy and waste.
Sounds good, right? Right. So what are you waiting for – whether you're looking for a winter yoga retreat or next year's summer holiday, you'll find it at Paradis Plage.
