Located within a few hours of Marrakech, Essaouira is southern Morocco’s legendary beach town. Unlike the big city, Essaouira is laid back and timeless with sandy-colored ramparts, whitewashed avenues, French-style piazzas, and a port full of azure blue fishing boats.
The medina, a UNESCO World Heritage Site, and the beautiful fishing harbor are great places to explore each with a great selection of restaurants. There are beautiful sandy beaches nearby renown for excellent surfing spots.
Don’t miss a camel ride to the famous crumbling fort Bordj El Berod and the traditional souks as well as the famous music and cultural festivals. The Gnaoua World Music festival, the city’s biggest annual event, is held every June and runs for three days – early booking is recommended.
