Safi, Morocco

Safi is a city in western Morocco on the Atlantic Ocean. The capital of the Doukkala-Abda Region, it is the main fishing port for the country's sardine industry, and also exports phosphates, textiles and ceramics.

The central medina is a traditional Moroccan market. It is closely affiliated with pottery, and throughout the market vases, plates and other items are all made from clay and are popular with tourists. Safi has a beach, although it is recommended to travel north along the coastal road (Sidi Bouzid) towards Oualidia, where stretches of beaches run all the way along the route (Lalla Fatna, Beddouza, Iyir).
