I live a short grand taxi ride away from the Mediterranean coast. The towns of M’diq (Rincon in Spanish), Martil, and Fnideq are lively beach towns full of vacationers during the summer months and much quieter and emptier in the off season. It’s too cold to swim, and the sky is often overcast in November, but I still love walking along these beaches. I love the juxtaposition of the Rif mountains against sand and sea. Late fall brings a lot of rain to northern Morocco, and I feel like the mountains have been gradually becoming greener.
