See where the Ancient Greek demi-god rested before undertaking his 11th labor at Hercules Cave, a subterranean land of history and myth. The grotto has been formed by erosion and by human hand, with Berbers cutting chunks from the walls to make millstones. Today, the cave's atmospheric illumination creates an evocative environment in which to learn about the myths and history surrounding the site. One of two entries to the cave, the sea entrance has been named the "Map of Africa," thought to have been carved out by the Phoenicians to represent the continent when seen from the water.

Hercules Cave Reviews
We were dropped off here by our guide, and went inside to have a look. I was surprised how short and easy accessible the cave was. There were some other people inside, still we had no problem taking..... more »
Enjoyed our brief stop at the cave. Spent about 20 minutes at the caves and enjoyed the beautiful ocean view from the cave. The drive to the cave area was also enjoyable - beautiful local scenery..... more »
Not so special, but still a nice cave. Bring your tripod for good photos.
I agree with some other reviews. Not particularly much to see in the cave beside a whole that gives to the ocean and is represented in half of Morocco’s postcards. However, the view of the beach and the beach itself gift us a stunningly beautiful and peaceful moment. During busy times there might be queues to see the cave!
