Sidi Ifni is the capital of the Ait-Baamarani people located in the province of Tiznit in the Souss Region of Agadir in the South of Morocco. It is placed beside the Atlantic Ocean and the Anti-Atlas in the zone of transition to the Sahara.
Ifni was a former province of Spain and was transferred by Spain to Morocco in 30 June 1969.
The city is small with its 15,000 inhabitants. Many old Spanish Art Deco buildings form its ambiance and it is almost white.
The sea arrives to it in seven waves that strongly break in front of the “marabou of Sidi-Aali-Ifni” from which the city received its name.
