Enjoy visiting bab Essaouira

Essaouira is an ancient, lovely, romantic little city on the Atlantic coast of Morocco. The beach is sandy and beautiful, and the medina is gorgeous and peaceful with a laid-back atmosphere. Spending time within Essaouira’ s well-preserved stone ramparts takes visitors back to a long-ago time of mystery and discovery, when this town was named; “Mogador” and sailors knew this shoreline as “The Barbary Coast”. The medina is a UNESCO World Heritage Site.

You’ll be amazed to experience the local art, history, culture and hospitality, and also take advantage of the wide assortment of beach activities including surfing, kite-surfing, swimming, sun bathing, quad riding, camel riding, horse riding, and the list goes on. Or just sit and relax at a small cafe or sun-drenched rooftop terrace. If you dream of exotic sand & sea destinations, Essaouira has the activity, or relaxation setting to suit you!

Essaouira is also famous for its outstanding, fresh seafood, brought ashore by local fisherman daily.
