Beautiful ocean views, and a look at the past. The gardens are pretty, and a walk through the residential part of the kasbah is a real surprise.

One of the better kasbahs in Morocco. After bypassing the 'guides' at the front entry, you'll it full of the usual windy, switchback, dead-end streets, with a more relaxed tone then the craziness of maintown Rabat. White and blues cover the majority of residencies inside the Kasbah, very reminescent of Greek islands. Much quieter during winter, you can find accommodation... More

Went here during my business trip to Rabat due to the review in TripAdvisor. Quite close from the hotel where I stayed. First impression, very good, you can see the old ruins of the walls with the old white and blue houses, still quite preserves, very interesting place. Be careful of some local people that will nicely try to show... More

You will find only traditional houses inside, no shops at all, differing in this aspect from a Medina. A true sample of the past Moroccan way of life.

It is a fortified area of Rabat, constructed by Almoahid dynasty in 1150 AD. In the beginning the area was called Mahdiyya. The locality has a unique flavor of a village in the center of the city with houses and streets wearing blue and white color. The entry to the area is made through the magnificent historic gate called “Bab-e-Udaya”.... More

Very atypical kasbah in Morocco. Built on the ocean with small houses painted with white and cyan colors, in its walls you could be in every small island in Mediterraneo: it's a space and time travel experience!

I just wish we had more time to explore this area. It is a beautiful area and every turn gave us something else beautiful to see. Very clean and quiet.

In case you didn't have time to visit Chefchaouen, Kasbah des Oudaias is the place that will give you a feel of the picturesque blue and white village. Must do: have tea at the Café Maure to enjoy the beautiful views of the Rabat coastline and Bou Regreg estuary.
