Phared'el Hank Reviews & Ratings
El Hank is probably best viewed from afar. It was closed to the public when I went, and there was no information posted anywhere about it's significance or history. The area is surrounded by a slum as well. If I could go to the top, it would probably deserve a much higher review.
When we visited the lighthouse it was not allowed to go up, not even close to it because of some structural damage. Too bad, we were very interested in the place and the view from above.
The Casablanca Lighthouse (called El Hank) has a great location and that's all it has. Most of the time of the year it is closed for public. The employees (Guardian) don't tell you the truth. They offer you to go upstairs for a lot of money (from Moroccan standards). The place is in a mess; full of garbage all around; stinking filth from the sewage; old slums with drug addicts roaming around. And right next door (not even 50 meters) so called high-class restaurant and lounge. Actually, there are a couple of restaurants just before the entrance to the Lighthouse area. There is also a hotel, a bar, a night club and some playgrounds. A new development project is underway to improve the outlook of the coastline (Cornich) between Hassan-II Mosque and El Hank.
The places looks great, their was a man who offered to take us up for a fee of USD 10 per person, it is a lot for Morocco but it was worth it! The view is great, you get to see both the very poor and very rich part of the city as shown in the pictures attached!
