Enjoy a day in Essaouira by the Atlantic Coast
The coastal town of Essaouira is an excellent destination for a day trip. This beautiful town, that is now a UNESCO World Heritage site, remains one of Morocco’s best-loved coastal destinations. Complete with a bustlinghistorical centre and surrounded by eighteenth century stone city walls.
Explore the atmospheric alleyways of the ancient medina, and the old ramparts which now provide protection from the wind and waves of the Atlantic Ocean. From a long white sandy beach and dunes to a bustling fishing port with excellent seafood and colourful wooden fishing boats, Essaouira has always been a favourite retreat of hippies, sailors, artists and musicians.
From Marrakech it is a leisurely drive to the Atlantic Coast and Essaouira. Local attractions include the Sidi Med Ben Abdallah Museum, the souks, the old city gates, and the impressive sqalas – fortified sea bastions. Perhaps enjoy a meal in one of the fabulous seafood restaurants and a stroll along Essaouira’s impressive sandy beach.
Late in the afternoon you will make the return drive to Marrakech.
