The coastline in Morocco has miles and miles of top quality beaches and most of them are a lot cleaner than you would expect. There are 120 beaches from Saidia to Tangiers (Mediterranean zone), 238 from Tangiers to Essaouira (north Atlantic) and 54 from Agadir to Dakhla (south Atlantic).
A recent government study (2005) found that 90 per cent of Moroccan beaches are safe for swimming and only 10 per cent should be avoided due to high pollution rates.
The water quality has improved quite considerably from 2004. Two places to be avoided are Rabat and Sale. Swimming here might actually cause disease.
