'''El Jadida''' is a coastal town 100km south of [[Casablanca]] in [[Morocco]].
The town is very much the holiday destination for Morocco's more wealthy city dwellers. With long beaches and a more relaxed atmosphere, it makes a welcome relief to the hustle-and-bustle of the larger cities inland. The town's other economy is its fishing industry.
The town is famous for the remains of Portuguese buildings and the ''Cistern''
. Although these are fairly limited attractions. Even the most dedicated historian may find their interest waning after an hour.
ONCF [http://www.oncf.ma/scripts/horaires1.asp] trains depart
every 2 hours from Casablanca Port and Casablanca Voyageurs train stations. The trip is around 1 hour.
*Relax in one of the restaurants or cafes in the town. Especially if this is towards the end of your trip, as it is for many. You'll find this town far more chilled than [[Marrakech]] or [[Fez]]*
Tiny "Medina" not worth it.
*Campsite, The campsite is at the ''North East'' end of town, located about 5 minutes walk from the large roundabout near the sea (''The Rough Guide is wrong''). Price
