Casablanca Weather March Averages, Morocco
What's the Weather like in Casablanca in March
March is officially the start of spring in Casablanca and with it comes warmer weather, a drier climate and plenty of sun.
Average Sunshine Hours
March also heralds the end of the rainy season in Casablanca. And while no month of the year is ever completely spoilt by rain, the drier weather in this month not only heralds the start of the new season, but also makes promises of the very best weather to come.
In March only 7 days of the month are likely to see any rain. And while this is the same number of days that experience rainfall in February, total precipitation in March is just 50mm. This makes every rainfall more of a shower than a downpour, and ensures any wet weather is able to quickly dry up.
And when the sun comes out in Casablanca, the heat comes with it. Average highs of 19°C are common at this time of the year, though historically peak temperatures of 37°C have been recorded for this month.
With warmer days also come warmer nights. Average low temperatures for March jump to a very comfortable 10°C, which means that, even if your accommodation does not have heating, sleeping should never be a problem.
Average Sea Temperature
As the weather warms up, more and more people head to the beach. Water temperatures remain at their February levels, which is the coldest the sea will be around Casablanca. But at 17°C, wind surfers and divers are not complaining. Instead they will enjoy the choppy waves and abundance of wildlife that will make their activities even more memorable. And for those that want to cool off without the threat of rough tides, the hotels pools and beach clubs offer the perfect alternative.

Bars and Restaurants
Tout Va Bien
If you would like a little bit of a European touch to the nightlife in Casablanca, then Tout Va Bien on Boulevard du 11 janvier is the place to go. Though the bar does have a traditional Moroccan feel, it is far more cosmopolitan than many of the other late night establishments in the centre of town. The décor is very clean, the prices are reasonable and the staff are always friendly. And with plenty of themed nights, live music and even the odd talent contest on show, there is always something to keep you entertained at La Tout Va Bien.
Though the Maharaja on rue Mohamed El Qorri was once an Indian restaurant, today people only come here to drink. There are some signs of the Indian heritage in the décor, but now visitors like to enjoy the chilled back atmosphere, the cool drinks and the very respectable prices. Recent renovation means this bar has definitely had a face life. But traditionally you will see more locals than tourists, especially in the earlier months of the year. But for anyone visiting Casablanca in March, the Maharaja offers an experience you are not likely to forget.
Restaurant du Port de Peche
As Restaurant du Port de Peche is situated directly next to the Port in Casablanca, it is not surprising that their speciality is seafood. However, what will surprise you is the freshness of the ingredients and the intense flavours they are able to create. For lunch or dinner, this large restaurant offers an extensive array of delicious fish dishes, and all at a very reasonable cost. The portions are large and the beautiful view over the port is something to admire. While the seafood paella is said to be for two people, four people could easily get their fill. And with some delicious wines to wash it down with, Restaurant du Port de Peche is a fabulous place to eat.
