I was sailing instructor in '78 for Holiday Club, located about 2 kms north of M' Diq.
I think on the place where now Kahila Marina is located.
Any case, in '78 we had to go to Tetuan for gas, and in the fishing
port of M' Doq we could get sometimes diesel
. Although we bunkered mostly in Gib. The difference between now and '78 is unbelievable. I do not recognise anything since the coastline from Cabo Negro to Restinga is completely urbanised. In my time there it was from M' Diq until Restinga completely empty coast with the exception of the summer palace of Hassn II and neighboring Holiday Club. The hinterland was also unspoiled and you could horseback all the way to Tanger through the Rif with here and there tine villages.
We used the fishingport of M'Diq for the mooring
of the schooner and the yacht of my friend Alain. Other yachts were hardly visiting.
Quite a difference with today' s situation.
