I want to be clear; you are coming to the desert. There is no way to deny that it is hot. You are also going to be at Sbai Palace on a private compound. While we will be separated from the outside towns, there is an expectation of respect and modesty that we ask you to adhere to. Below are our suggestions on how to pack and dress for your stay in Morocco.
Dress for the Weather
In the winter, you’ll find temperature from forty to seventy, and in the hottest months of summer, days range from seventy to over one hundred degrees Fahrenheit. At any time of the year, bring warm layers for the evening.
Bring Practical Shoes
Closed toe and comfortable shoes are must-haves for long days of exploring. It’s also handy to have flip-flops for when you want to run around the riad or campgrounds.
Think Loose and Flowy
All things lightweight and full coverage is ideal — loose trousers or maxi skirts are perfect. A tunic shirt with leggings or a full kaftan is perfect too. Not only does full coverage allow you to dress conservatively in Morocco, but it will also protect you from the sun.
Wear a Scarf
Whatever you wear, have a lightweight scarf with you. You can use is to cover up before going into a mosque or just keep the sun off your skin when you’re overheating. You will need it during sandstorm as well. Moroccan scarves are also gorgeous souvenirs. You’ll find them in pretty much any city or town, so you don’t need to bring your own if you don’t want to.
Use Sun Protection
The sun in Morocco can be intense throughout the year. Bring sunglasses, a hat, and sunscreen.
