Casablanca Weather September Averages, Morocco
What's the Weather like in Casablanca in September
Though September is traditionally the time for autumn to begin, in Casablanca it is still summer all the way. High temperatures, dry weather and beautiful sunshine are close to conditions of the peak month of August, ensuring the warm weather just doesn't feel like it is ever going to come to an end.
But with the last of the peak crowds leaving the city for the year, September is a much quieter time in this part of Morocco. And this makes it a magnificent time to come and enjoy the fabulous climate in the region without worrying if you will be able to find a space on the beach.
Expect average temperatures of 23°C across the entire month of September, which are equal to the average temperatures usually seen in the month before. Indeed, even the average high temperatures of 26°C are equal to those experienced across July and August. While average lows of 19°C make every day in September seem like it is very much a summer month in the city.
Historically, September has matched July in offering the highest ever temperature recorded in Casablanca, at a very warm 40°C. But the record low of 6°C is lower than those seen over the previous two months, giving the very slightest indication that the weather may start to turn soon.
Rain continues to be non-existent in the region throughout September. The forecast does state that Casablanca could see up to 3 days experiencing some rain. But if this does happen, it is very likely to be at the very end of the month. And only then a total of 10mm of precipitation is likely to fall.
Average Sea Temperature
And as the weather stays beautifully warm, so does the average temperature in the water ensuring sea conditions up to 23°C keep everyone very happy at the beach. And while seven daily hours of sunshine is one less than experienced in August, for anyone that wants to enjoy some delicious late summer sun, Casablanca is definitely the place to come.
Casablanca Hotels in September
Club Val d'Anfa Hotel
When the sun is still very warm, the Club Val d'Anfa Hotel is a great place to stay. Its proximity to the boardwalk means you just have to step outside the doors to enjoy the beautiful coastline in September. And even while the peak summer season continues, prices are still very reasonable. There is plenty to do inside the hotel from Moroccan nights with traditional belly dancers to fabulous pool facilities. And with the views over the ocean there to wake up to, every day is going to feel like summer.
Moevenpick Hotel Casablanca
The Moevenpick Hotel Casablanca is a wonderful place to stay when you want a touch of luxury from your accommodation. The décor, the service and the location of this hotel ensure the five stars that are displayed are well deserved, while the food inside the restaurant will satisfy any type of appetite. A number of the best tourist spots in Casablanca are within walking distance, while the rooms themselves are spacious, airy and very clean. Combine this with the fully equipped luxury hammam and the views from the roof top pool and you will soon see why the Moevenpick is a fabulous option.
Hotel des Negiciants
For those that want a more economical place to stay in Casablanca, the Hotel des Negociants on Rue Allah ben Abdellah provides great value in a very convenient location. The central market and old Medina are both within walking distance from this basic, but friendly hotel. And with the Casa Tramway stop just down the road, this is a great base for those that like to explore. The rooms themselves are clean and comfortable, and the staff are very obliging. And if you arrive to find your room a little too basic, with a little haggling, you can often get an upgrade in September without having to pay too much more.
Beaches in Casablanca for September
Though it may take some effort to get to Tangier beach, when you arrive it will all be worth it. The fabulous blue ocean and golden sands are enriched with the local vendors offering rides, entertainments and their own original wares. In the morning, the fisherman will be on the shoreline gathering their daily catch, which they are more than happy to sell on. In the afternoons, the beach comes alive with football games, local vendors and a wonderful attitude. There are plenty of restaurants and bars for all day refreshment which adds the finishing touch to a fabulous day out.
Even in the winter Mirleft beach is truly beautiful. But as the sun is still very warm, this stretch of sand is simply irresistible. This is a more natural type of beach which means the sand isn't as groomed as some of the neighbouring areas are. But it does offer a more authentic atmosphere and a great place to spend the day. The hilltops around Mirleft offer some lovely long walks and some fabulous views over the sea. Just make sure you take refreshments with you, even local vendors are scarcely found.
Peau de Vache
Peau de Vache is loud, popular and irresistible on any visit to Casablanca. This bar on the rue Allal Ben Abdallah never seems to stop mainly because the mix of residents and tourists that go there, don't want it to. Order the fresh seafood and you will see the fishmonger deliver your dinner before it's served to you on a plate. Or drop in for a quick pint to start a good night out. The wine list is reasonable and the staff are very friendly. For large groups or couples, it's safe, it's welcoming and Peau de Vache is a great place to be.
Bar Le Petit Poucet
For those that like their drinks delivered with a more retro vibe, the Bar Le Petit Poucet is the place to go. The combination of old school bar and up to date plasma screens ensure everyone gets what they want. And though the bar doesn't sell any type of food at all, the restaurant next door by the same name can always satisfy. This low key bar offers a full range of alcoholic drinks or you can enjoy their delicious range of aromatic coffees. It's the place to come for a good night out then back the next morning to recover.
Brasserie La Tour
For delicious French food in Casablanca, take a visit to Brasserie La Tour in the Sofitel Hotel. The colourful lounge has an appeal all of its own, and when you combine it with the varied and tantalising menu, it's easy to see why this restaurant is so irresistible. The staff are highly professional whether you arrive for breakfast, lunch or dinner. And in the heat of the September sun, the full sized windows present a fabulous view. An array of delicious Moroccan wines will complete your meal in surroundings that you will want to come back to.
Things to do in Casablanca in September
The Corniche is a lively and very popular part of Casablanca located directly next to the sea. Frequented by the younger generation especially, this area offers entertainment, bars, restaurants, and a great place to chill out. When the weather is warm in September, take a walk down the promenade and enjoy the views out over the ocean. Or sit back in one of the elegant cafés and watch the locals take their daily constitutional. In the evening it is a great place to grab a drink and watch the sunset behind the mosque. For those that like to absorb local culture, a visit to The Corniche is not to be missed.
Though it is possible to tour Casablanca and the surrounding area by yourself, only by using a qualified tour guide, such as Under Moroccan Sun, can you get a true appreciation of everything this region has to offer. With a private tour, you can choose where you visit, how long you go for and what you would like the theme to be. You can even negotiate the price. Put yourself in the safe hands of local, professional people and they will provide a secure and thoroughly enjoyable journey around the area. Visit Fez, Rabat or other places more far afield. You can travel for a day, a week or a month and see all that Morocco has to offer.
