1. Sahara Desert

A visit to Morocco is undoubtedly incomplete if you don’t spend a night at a nomadic camp in the Sahara Desert.

Depending on your preference, you can choose to visit Erg Chigaga or Erg Chebbi. The sand of the Sahara Desert shines golden at sunset as you watch the staff wear blue Berber robes and interact with the cute camels. These features of the Sahara Desert make it one of Morocco’s most impressive Instagrammable places.

The best tip to getting the most Instagram-worthy pictures at the right time in the desert is to prepare beforehand. It is recommended to wake up early, even before the staff suggests since walking up the dunes can be quite challenging.

3. Musée Dar El Bacha

If you are looking for a hidden gem in the city of Marrakech, you need to check out the Musée Dar El Bacha in Marrakech, Morocco.

This museum is full of beautiful artifacts and exhibits, but its main attraction for Instagrammers and travelers is its stunning interior and architecture.

The building of the museum is beyond beautiful, and the courtyard garden of the museum boasts a fountain, tiles, greenery, and mosaics that you won’t be able to find anywhere in the city. It is best to hire a photographer if you are looking for some professional photographs at the perfect spot.

4. Riad Be Marrakech

If you want to cool off in the heat of Morocco, the best way to do that is to visit a luxury riad. Riads are simple and plain from the outside but are intricately designed with greenery and a pool to cool off.

The Riad Be Marrakech is one of the best riads you can visit, which has a colorful interior. It is full of exotic plants, vibrant sweeping curtains, and a small and fantastic pool where you can relax and escape the harsh sun.

You can stay at the guesthouse and observe the Moroccan culture closely just by studying the architecture and design of the riad as well as by interacting with the staff.

The architecture of the tombs is admirable, and the framed arches can make for a fantastic shot for Instagram.

6. Bahia Palace

The Bahia Palace is one of the most popular spots in the country for tourists. While many people are interested in exploring the Grand Courtyard of the beautiful Palace, there are many smaller gardens and spots at the palace perfect for an Instagram photoshoot.

You can tour the many intricately designed rooms of the Palace and take pictures in front of pretty little alcoves, vibrantly tiled courtyards, and gorgeous jardins of the Bahia Palace.

If you plan to get the perfect shot for Instagram without any distractions, we recommend reaching the site early, when the Palace opens for visitors at around 9 am, since there are only a few people at the location.

7. Jardin Secret

A more beautiful yet much lesser-known garden in Marrakech is the Jardin Secret. Since many people aren’t aware of Jardin Secret, the crowd at the location is bound to be much less than at other locations. When you enter Jardin Secret, you will be able to see two gardens.

The first garden is a charming green setting full of exotic plants and flowers. The second garden is the Moroccan garden which is a delightful treat for the eyes. It is a stunning garden where you will find a curtained courtyard along with an incredible gazebo.

You can stroll around the garden with your significant other, enjoy some lunch, and take pictures for Instagram that you won’t be able to forget.
