Meeting with the pure nature.
Most of the coastal area is hilly, sometimes even mountainous, and there are a few natural harbours. The area from the coast to the Tell Atlas is fertile. South of the Tell Atlas is a steppe landscape ending with the Saharan Atlas; farther south, there is the Sahara desert.
Rainfall is fairly plentiful along the coastal part of the Tell Atlas, ranging from 400 to 670 mm annually.
