7 Best Marrakech instagram

The 7 Most Instagrammable Spots In Marrakech

You can’t miss out on Marrakech when travelling around Morocco. This ancient walled city is home to mosques, palaces and lush gardens.

It’s known as The Red City thanks to the colour of the brick walls surrounding the city. Plus, the medina is a UNESCO World Heritage Centre.

Want incredible bright colours of desert sand or monochrome mosaics? You’ll love these 7 Marrakech Instagram spots just as much as we do…

1. Pink Rooftop at Jardin Secret

The Pink Roof Top is a hippie vegetarian restaurant at the beautiful Jardin Secret riad. The pink walls and wooden swing make it ideal for a Marrakech Instagram snap.

The boutique hotel is the perfect place to stay when visiting the city.

2. Riad Yasmine

Check out this private boutique hotel situated in the middle of the Medina of Marrakech. Riad Yasmine is an Insta-haven. You can even rent your own 3-bed private riad with a pool,  rooftop terrace and a butler!

Don’t leave without getting that classic swimming pool courtyard shot…

3. Marrakech Souks

Jemaa el-Fna is the main market square in Marrakech, filled with snake charmers, spices and trinkets.

Wander through the back streets to explore the maze-like Aladdin’s cave vendors and street food stalls. So. Much. Colour. Just don’t forget to barter for the best bargains!

4. Le Jardin Majorelle

Famous fashion designer Yves Saint Laurent and his partner Pierre Bergé bought the electric-blue Jardin Majorelle.

There’s also an amazing museum dedicated to Yves Saint Laurent next door. Ideal for fashionistas. Make sure you pose for a selfie in front of the colourful walls for your #OOTD…

5. Berber Lodge

Just 20 minutes outside of Marrakech, you’ll find this rustic boutique hotel designed to look just like a traditional Moroccan village.

A real getaway from the madness of the medina, the luxurious rooms feature local artwork. The lodge itself is nestled in between olive trees. Bliss.

6. Bab Agnaou Medina Gate

Bab Aganou is perhaps the most unique of Marrakech’s nineteen gates. It was originally used as a royal entrance, which is why it looks so intricate.

Built in the 12th century, just gaze up in wonder and get snap-happy.

7. Zagora Desert

The Zagora desert region of the Sahara is seven hours away from Marrakech but worth the journey.

You can ride camels in the sunset and sleep in traditional camps underneath the stars. The most iconic Marrakech Instagram photo there is? 100%.
