With a population of just over 800,000, Tetouan is a beautiful town largely due to the dramatic mountains in the south and west of the valley from which Tetouan rises. Tetouan boasts 320 days of sunshine a year with average temperatures of 35°C in summer and 22°C in winter. The fully equipped marina has luxurious 5 and 6 star hotels, along with amazing restaurants, clubs, pavement cafes, markets, snake charmers and night life.

There are also two museums, a college of fine arts and a school of Moroccan art. Most sports can be found in the surrounding areas including skiing, winter sports and hunting in the Atlas Mountains.
