A small seaside town for its stunning beauty, Moulay Bousselham is more than just a laid-back fishing village. Its single main street teems with restaurants, cafes and souvenir shops. In winter it is mostly empty, but during summertime it is popular with holidaymakers.
Moulay Bousselham is named after a 10th-century Egyptian saint who guarded the mouth of the river within its koubba, which he commemorated.
There are frequent taxis and buses to Moulay Bousselham from Souk el-Arbaa du Rharb. The town is accessible by Grand taxis from Larache costing 250 dirhams.
