Essaouira day trip

Essaouira day trip

on a base of 3 people

We will leave Marrakech at 08:00 towards the coastal city of Essaouira. This Old Portuguese town is surprising with its blue-shuttered house’s architectures and guns pointed out at sea.

You will firstly stop at the port which was built in the 18th century and called Tumbuktu as it serves to connect Africa to Europe and America. It is an animated place because of fish vendors that return to the port on their multicolored fishing boats.

You will then visit the Skala. Founded for military purposes, this site preserved the city from attacks with a collection of bronze cannons oriented to the ocean.

You will continue exploring the Portuguese ramparts and crossing the alleys of the Medina. As a UNESCO World Heritage Site, the Medina of Essaouira is an example of a walled city of the 18th century. Its souks expose all kinds of handicrafts: carpets, woolen clothes, aromatic products, jewelries, wooden decorations…

After lunch, enjoy a stroll on the beach while observing the surf professionals training.
