The coastal town of Essaouira is an excellent destination for a day trip. This beautiful town, which is now a UNESCO World Heritage site, remains one of Morocco’s best-kept secrets and is a must-see destination. Complete with a bustling historical center and surrounded by ancient city walls.

What you’re going to do

Enjoy a day in Essaouira by the Atlantic Coast!

Explore the atmospheric alleyways of the ancient Medina, and the old ocher ramparts which now provide protection from the wind-assisted waves of the Atlantic Ocean. From a long white sandy beach and dunes to a bustling fishing port with excellent seafood and colorful wooden fishing boats, Essaouira has always been a favorite retreat of hippies, sailors, artists, and musicians.

From Marrakech, it is a leisurely drive to the Atlantic Coast and the Essaouira. Local attractions include the Sidi Med Ben Abdallah Museum, the souks, the old city gates, and the impressive Skkalas – fortified sea bastions. Perhaps enjoy a meal in one of the fabulous seafood restaurants and a stroll along Essaouira’s impressive sandy beach before your drive back to Marrakech.
