Ain Diab, Casablanca, Morocco

Before continuing our tour to Rabat just a little more than 100 kms from Casablanca, we had lunch at Ain Diab. It is a seaside suburb of Casablanca and known as the corniche of Morocco or to its extreme, the riviera of Africa. Passing the neighbourhood getting to the beachfront you’ll get to see posh residences.

A walk along the boulevard exposes you to the mighty Atlantic ocean with its rough waves, the beach is nothing out of the extra-ordinary. It’s a popular spot among the locals and tourists and during the summer expect ½ million visitors here. Properties fronting the beach are commercial buildings like hotels and restaurants making up the numbers. In 1958, Ain Diab hosted one round of the F1 races here but unfortunately never again.

One of the posh residence on your way to the beachfront of Ain Diab. This belongs to an Arab prince which has a mosque in the compound and open to public for Friday prayers. Gosh, a mosque in his house!

Street into the beachfront. You can deduce from this type of advertising campaign, what type of crowd Ain Diab draws.

McD and other fast food by the beach. So an inexpensive lunch can be had here.
