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''but 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 nine times a day from Casablanca Voyageurs train station. In February 2018 the first departure was at 6:40 am, followed by departures at 8:40 am, 9:40 am, 10:40 am, 12:40 pm, 2:40 pm, 4:40 pm, 5:40 pm, and 7:40 pm. The cost for a round-trip ticket is 8 dirhams in second class, which is fine for nearly all travelers. The trip is around 1 hour, 30 minutes. Trains for El Jadida also depart from Casablanca Port, but they go through Casablanca Voyageurs and cost a bit more. Taxis from the train station in El Jadida to Cité Portugaise cost a flat rate of 10 dirhams but expect to share a taxi with people going in the same direction (but not necessarily to the same destination).

*Cité Portugaise - the Portuguese town from 16th century was registered as a UNESCO World Heritage site in 2004. A great spot for a stroll, as well as a go-to point for photographers. Do not miss La Citerne, which is on the left on the same street as the main entrance to the fort.

*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]].

*Experience true Moroccan city life without the hassle, noise and glaring social inequity of [[Casablanca]]. Expect not to be bothered by anyone.

*Tiny "Medina" not worth it.

Accommodation cost can seem out of comparison compared to other Moroccan cities mainly because of the town being a popular domestic tourist destination especially during the summer months..

  Riad Harmonie is a guesthouse run by a lovely French couple who live on the spot with their two kids. The riad was opened in 2011 so everything is new and fresh. This place has a cozy and very friendly atmosphere and the owners speak very good English. Located within 10 minutes of a slow walk to Cité Portugaise.
