A few destinations in the Arab world are known for their uncanny resemblance to the Cycladic Greek islands.

Thanks to their whitewashed houses that teeter off the edge of deep blue seas, these destinations have become hot spots for tourists in recent years.

You should consider bookmarking these destinations ... because there is so much more to these charming locations than just that. 

Chefchaouen, Morocco

Located in the northwest of the North African country, Chefchaouen's white-washed blue homes stand against the backdrop of the Rif Mountains. 

Founded in 1471 as a small fortress, the city's name is derived from the Berber word for horns, lchawen.

There are frequent buses into the city from Fez, Tetouan, Casablanca, Rabat, Meknes, Tangier, and Ceuta.

The city is the definition of a picturesque destination

Feeling blue yet?

Sidi Bou Saïd, Tunisia

Blue and white aren't the official colors of Greece alone, the coastal town of Sidi Bou Said, located just 20 km north of Tunis, has its own captivating charm. 

The entire town is located on a steep cliff overlooking the Mediterranean, surrounded by palm trees and draping flowers wherever you look, making it impossible not to fall in love with the place. 

"A piece of heaven"

One word: pretty

Anfeh, Lebanon

Located approximately 65 kilometers north of Beirut, Anfeh has traditionally been largely overlooked by tourists. 

That changed when some beach-goers snapped photos of this epic village, attracting even more photo-snapping and Instagram-uploading beachgoers ... and so on and so forth. 

Now, the coastal town is so busy with tourists you can barely find a place to sit. 

"Beach in all its glory"

A beautiful sunset destination

Ghadames, Libya

The large oasis Berber town, located in northwestern Libya near the Algerian and Tunisian borders, has been dubbed "pearl of the desert."

Ghadames is famous for its Old Town, which is mostly known for its brilliant contrast of colors. Interconnected rooftops and dark tunnels are met with white-washed walls, making the place an architectural treasure.

The old town is considered an UNESCO World Heritage Site.

Isn't it beautiful?
