Our day trip from Marrakech to Essaouira starts at 8 from your hotel and will take you on a spectacular drive through rich valleys filled with orange groves, ancient olive and Argan trees and working farms as you approach the coast. In about one hour drive we will jump out to grab a cup of mint tea or coffee and we will carry on driving until we reach a bizarre sight of tree goats’ phenomenon where you’ll be spellbound to snap some pictures of cloven-hoofed goats onto the Argan trees.
Once you arrive in Essaouira, prepare to be blown away by this tranquil spot, with a medina that is surrounded by walls, bazaars that are easy to navigate and with beaches that are surprisingly great spots for surfing. The one time Portuguese trading post of Essaouira has a rustic feel that makes you feel as though you are stepping back in time.
Located on the windy Atlantic coast, about two hours southwest of Marrakesh, is the small city of Essaouria. “Swerah,” as locals call it, or it’s old Portuguese name “Mogador’’. This blue seaside town combines some of the best of what Morocco has to offer — excellent beaches, great food and vibrant culture and one of the famous music « Gnaoua » — with a chill atmosphere that isn’t as prominent in other parts of the country
The laid back, peaceful coastal town of Essaouira found on the west of Morocco is the perfect place to relax, unwind and put those bartering and haggling skills to rest for a bit. The ancient citadel on the West Atlantic coast of Africa literally means ‘‘wall’’ in the Berber language, travelers from all over the world stop by here to experience the very special weather and explore its diverse, captivating history and sample its fresh seafood.
After a day of sightseeing, return back to your accommodation in Marrakech.
