Essaouira Day Trip

Essaouira stands as one of the most captivating destinations on the Moroccan Atlantic coast, and for good reason. Its rich historical heritage is headlined by the Skala, a 16th-century Portuguese maritime fortress. The entire medina, a UNESCO World Heritage site, is a treasure trove of history, including the evocative Jewish quarter or Mellah, and the quaint fishing port at the foot of the Skala. Its unique charm has even attracted film and TV productions, including ‘Game of Thrones’.

Moreover, Essaouira is a city that vibrantly celebrates its folklore, especially the Gnawa music, often dubbed as its ‘capital’ due to the famous summer festival. Its beaches are a major draw for many travelers, offering refreshing swims and water sports for the adventurous. This hippie, bohemian, and surfer vibe captivated famous personalities, like Jimi Hendrix.

The journey from Marrakech is relatively short, covering 200 km through vast argan fields, the national tree of Morocco, making it a scenic and culturally enriching trip.

Essaouira, once a Portuguese fortress, offers a rich blend of history and charm within its walls, waiting to be explored upon arrival.

Spend a day at leisure in Essaouira, where the range of activities is as broad as its beaches. Choose from horseback riding along the coast, camel or quad rides, to leisurely walks by the ocean. Sunbathe on the coastal dunes, or for adrenaline seekers, there are water sports like kite surfing, windsurfing, surfing, and jet skiing.

Strolling through the streets of its medina, discover shops, artisans, and local artists. Don’t miss the chance to taste fresh fish and seafood at its renowned fishing port.
