The contrast of blue and white can be seen in this beach bungalow, from the beach chairs to the windows and it creates an unusually calming balance of colors. Hotel Villa Soleil features rooms with double beds and a patio, ideal for honeymooners or couples. The location is just three minutes away from Sidi Kaouki Beach and a beachfront location also means chilly nights from the ocean breeze, when the indoor fireplace comes in handy for a warm, soothing remedy.

This house will charm travelers with its laidback and classic feel. A basic room can fit two guests, with two beds prepared for each. The rooftop gives incredible views of the town and also a chance to witness a pitch black night, when the sky will be lit with stars. There are plenty of hiking trails to take on with its countryside location and nature surrounds this stone surf house.
And, for vacationers intending to ride the waves, the Kaouki Surf School is just within walking distance, with watersport equipment prepared for rental and instructors available for classes.

Double beds with access to the facilities of the house, this is the perfect couple’s getaway. This house retains the traditional look of a Berber house, giving it a vintage feel. Lounge on the rooftop, where you’ll find mini tables and chairs, and dine while you’re at it, while taking in the gorgeous city view at sunset. Sidi Kaouki Beach is just less than a mile (1.6 km) away, where you can stroll along the famous beach with fine sand under your feet, for comfort.
