The name Al Hoceima comes from the Spanish word Al Hoceima which means lavender . This place is very popular among both Moroccans and European tourists for its beautiful beaches and delicious seafood.
Located in the centre of the Rif Mountains in Morocco, Al Hoceima is primarily a beach resort along the north coast of Africa. Unlike many Moroccan towns, Al Hoceima looks very much like an old Spanish town, as the Spanish created the settlement. Many of the people that live in Al Hoceima also live a Spanish way of life; like any Spanish town, the residents take siestas (afternoon naps) half way through the day, and take paseos (long, lazy afternoon strolls) through the main town, which is highly influenced by historic Spanish architecture. Playa Quemado is the main beach in the city, situated between two dramatic cliffs, and is perfect for relaxing afternoons by the shore.
