You want to discover a small town by the sea, with declining colors of blue franc in the contrast of white and silver, you will just have to leave early in the morning and return in the evening to Marrakech, 3 hours, including a stop of 30 minutes.

Essaouira will amaze you with its tranquility, its architecture, its typical port where all the boats are blue, its seagulls and gulls overlooking the sea, its medina open to the sky, its old doors that will make you want to photograph them all, its small restaurants where you will enjoy a fish tajine or seafood pastilla...

You will be seduced by its small leather shops or traditional jewelry, the souks that come alive at the end of the day will make you want to buy all kinds of food, such as barley bread, seasonal fruits, dates, Moroccan cakes....

The ramparts of the city recently redone, will encourage you to enter through the large doors to give way to a special atmosphere to this city. Maze of streets, sometimes decorated with Moroccan carpets or scarves and paintings with the theme of the sea, small courtyards that give way to relax in front of a good Moroccan tea and shops of all kinds that make you want to buy everything.

A stroll to the sound of reggae music in the main street of the medina, or young talents, solo or group come to indulge in music and singing in the squares in front of the cafes.

One should not forget for fans of gnawa music, the festival that takes place every year.

You can decide to spend several days, which will give you more time to enjoy the beach where it will be easy to find a deckchair and umbrella. Small vendors of drinks, ice cream, cakes will spend all day to enhance your day.

For the pleasure of adults and children, camel rides or horseback riding on the beach during the day or at sunset, will liven up your days.

You can rent a surfboard, or play kite, rent a quad to discover the surroundings.

The charm of Essaouira is also to remember its breathtaking sunsets.

Typical guest houses inside the medina whose views on the terraces are breathtaking or outside in hotels very different from each other and more modern, you will have the choice to stay there.

You will enjoy in the evening to discover this city illuminated in another atmosphere and you will finish the discovery of Essaouira enjoying walking on the beach path to the rhythm of the waves by telling you that you will return.
