Marrakech-Tensift-El Haouz Region became a magnet for tourists mainly because of its Phoenician archaeological sites, Berber settlements, and sandy beaches on the Atlantic Ocean. Most tours of Marrakech-Tensift-El Haouz Region start at Marrakech, Morocco's major economic center with a World Heritage-listed medina, modern neighborhoods, important religious institutions, and the nation's largest traditional market. Most tourists remember their Marrakech-Tensift-El Haouz Region vacation by the migratory Berber camps and 4WD safaris through the mesmerizing desert.
