The Coastal Town of Essaouira

The small town of Essaouira is located south of Casablanca, 175 km west of Marrakech and 190 km north of Agadir. It is a resort destination of choice for Moroccans.

The medina of Essaouira is rather small and is surrounded by a wall. This entries has several wall and each of them gives access to one of the main avenues of the old city. The city of Essaouira is sufficiently small to be seen on foot.
One of the major sights: the fact that most doors and windows are painted blue. Also take the time to visit the port, you will find it through one of the city gates. Essaouira is also famous for its memories. There are all kinds of crafts in the many shops along the alleys of the old city. Memories of Cedar Wood and the carpets are probably the most remarkable.

Essaouira is one of the most pleasant of the Moroccan coast. Far from the crowds of tourists you can enjoy a mild climate all year round. The pale ocher walls are home to the city in a strong wind blowing much of the year. The freshness of the city will allow you to walk all day.

Indeed, the city attracts poets for centuries, scholars and craftsmen. Essaouira is a city of art. The view from the streets of the medina, the bright colors of houses, regional cuisine, local crafts, if known, the Gnawa music or the harmony between Jews, Arabs and Berbers ... All these reasons are a city of Essaouira magical and mysterious!

We generally include a day or even a night in Essaouira in ourtour programs, if not a day excursion is always worth the try.
