Day trip from Marrakech to Essaouira starting at 08:00. Enjoying the beach and seafood of Essaouira
Charming small town, Essaouira is the old Portuguese city of Mogador.
It was fortified by a French architect Vauban follower. These influences have given a beautiful and unique result. Today, the city is gradually becoming a city of artists.
Essaouira has a very favorable microclimate that ensures a mild winter and cool in summer. I’ll also mention a beautiful beach, protected by islands Purpuraires.
Artisans of Essaouira are famous for inlay on root growth cedar and offer a wide range of items from the souvenir to parts of furniture and works of art
Morocco’s Atlantic Coast is gorgeous and, once you visit, you will want to come back. Essaouira, a relaxed town set 3 hours from Marrakech, is a UNESCO World Heritage Site – a protected city. The ramparts of Essaouria and the 16th century walled city offer astonishing views of the Atlantic Ocean. A day trip to Essaouria – one of the most charming medinas in all of Morocco – will give you ample time to visit the important monuments, the old fish markets, and the seaport. You’ll also have a chance to watch silver craftsmen and wood carvers at work.
