Legzira Beach, Sidi Ifni Province, Southern Morocco

Legzira Beach, Sidi Ifni Province,Southern Morocco, 2016-07-05. 

Located between Mirleft and Sidi Ifni, Legzire is the most famous and popular beach in the region and Morocco’s most unique.

Unfortunately the second natural rock arch formation which made the beach famous has just recently fallen. But the first arch which has been eroded out of the coastline by winds and the tide still stands and will not fail to impress.

There are other natural arches and interesting rock formations dotted about the stretch of coastline between Sidi Ifni and Legzira. It’s possible to walk the mesmerising 10km stretch of coast from Legzira to Sidi Ifni, where you will be able to see the other natural arch which is not accessible via the main beach.

The main beach itself is a nice and easy amble, with rugged, windswept coastline to admire as you walk your way up to the natural arch.

Hotels line the initial stretch of the beach and a rather ugly resort has been built above, but fortunately they are far away from the arch and don’t distract from its natural beauty.
