Leave Marrakech at 08:00, ready for a Day Trip to Essaouira from Marrakech 3-hour journey to the beautiful Essaouira on the Atlantic Coast. Once you arrive at the port city, formerly known as Mogador, you will have time to enjoy the charming sights of Essaouira, including its ocher-colored walls, the beautiful Moulay El Hassan square, and the souks, as well as the little streets of the city’s old Medina. Enjoy a lunch of fresh fish in a local restaurant.

The beach of Essaouira is a long ribbon of around ten kilometres bathed in surf. Its sheer size is surprising and its tranquillity is reassuring.

  • There is an invigorating sensation from the ocean breeze as soon as you set foot on the immaculate sand.
  • you will also admire the view of goats on trees.
  • Essaouira is a medieval city known for its annual festival of Gnaoua music
  • The UNESCO considers the city to be an international heritage

Out of experience, Exploring Essaouira is easy on your own:

  • Locals are very friendly
  • the Medina is pretty small 
  •  Its streets are in order
  • You definitely do not need a guide for the tour of the city
  • Should you insist on one
  • your driver will help you hire a local guide for the tour of the city

In the afternoon, drive back to Marrakech, and your full day tour to Essaouira will end with a drop off at your hotel or the nearest car accessible point to your riad.

During your trip, visit an association of Berber women producing argan oil, see the local markets, and marvel at the gems in the jeweler’s quarter.

NOTE:  You will return to Marrakech at the end of the afternoon,  at around 18:00.
