The Mogador Bay is almost closed by the
large Island of Mogador, making it a relatively
peaceful harbour protected against the strong winds of the
area and it has long been considered as one of the best anchorages
of the Moroccan coast. Also for access to fresh water.
The supply of building-stones and wood facilitated
the construction of fortifications.
Notice the passage between the Island
of Mogador and the mainland.
