  • Hi, could you tell me where is the closest parking?
    Thank you for your query. Dar Al Bahar is located in the medina, which is solely pedestrian area. You can leave your car at one of the guarded parkings of Bab Marrakech or Bab El Menzeh, near the harbour , both within walking distance from us.
