Oualidia is a small, sleepy and very peaceful fishing village located between the coastal towns of Safi and El Jadida on Morocco's Atlantic coast.
There is very little to do in Oualidia which makes it all the more enticing to those looking for true relaxation with a spectacular view over the 11 km long lagoon which hosts an amazing wildlife scent to enjoy.
The village itself is a good example of a typical coastal village, untouched by tourism offering the visitor a glimpse into the daily lives of the Doukkali people. The market every Saturday is a must with nothing on sale that is not of practical use to the people. The barber shaves and trims mens beards under a canvas awning, bits and pieces are traded and people come from the surrounding villages to meet, and discuss the goings on in their villages.
Fishing and farming are the main occupations in the area.
