Experience the Lovely Beach Town of Essaouira
Essaouira is a small fishing town on the Atlantic coastline that used to be under Portuguese control and now serves as a place to unplug and relax. Life is a little bit slower here, with the sun and waves giving a relaxed atmosphere to the town. The town’s buildings are mainly white-washed with blue shutters, creating a classic Mediterranean feel while still having a medina typical of Moroccan cities.
On your day trip here you will have the option to enjoy the beach, explore the medina shops and old fortress, and lunch at the local fish restaurants that serve fish fresh-caught straight from the sea.
We will pick you up from your hotel in Marrakech, transport you to Essaouira, and then start with a guided tour of the town. From here you’ll be free to take part in whichever aspect of the Essaouira experience sounds most appealing:
Get lost wandering the small walled medina and fortress
Take part in the traditional spa practice of hammam (reservation required in advance)
Enjoy the many cafes and restaurants on the water
Simply relax on the beach!
The trip to Essaouira takes approximately 3 hours each way. We will pick you up at your Marrakech hotel in the morning and drop you back at night. Timing is flexible, this is your day to enjoy!
