Rabat is located on the Atlantic Ocean at the mouth of the river Bou Regreg, opposite Salé, the city’s main commuter town.

The name Rabat comes from the Arabic word meaning the ribat, an Islamic base or fortification. This name is short for (Ribâtu l-Feth) meaning the ribat of conquest or stronghold of victory—a title given by the Almohads when they established the city as a naval base in 1170.
