Marrakech to Essaouira day trip will take you to a different side of Morocco. A place for men to fish, for lazy afternoon strolls and steaming pots of mint tea, enjoyed overlooking the ocean. After five days amongst the frenetic souks and streets of the country’s biggest tourist draw, the peace and tranquillity that oozes from the pores of this delightful seaside town are as intoxicating as it is soothing.
Sahara Desert Excursions Driver/Guide will pick up time at 08H00 am from your Hotel / Riad in Marrakech to start the driving to Essaouira (Around 2H30 ), there is a lot of things to see on the roads, An opportunity to visit Organic Argan oil cooperatives that are a form of social and organizational associations for women in the area. We choose for you an argan oil cooperative that gives you a great chance to witness the products being made. In rooms adorned with argan trees, women use ancient tools to hand press oil from the kernels. it is interesting to see the process like an open-air museum.
Once you arrive in Essouira you will have the time to discover the medina which is surrounded by medieval walls and ramparts forming part of the defensive boundary of a castle or settlement. Essaouira has beautiful ramparts called “Skala” a UNESCO site heritage for less than 2 € visitors can explore the ramparts and listen to the waves crash and take excellent coastal and city photos. An optional local guide to hire is possible. For lunch you can visit the Fishing market & Fishing port, a must-see Since Essaouira was Morocco’s main fishing port in the mid-1900s, And being this close to the ocean it would be a big loss not to eat seafood, we headed towards the local seafood market where you can select your fish from their elaborate daily catch and have it cooked for you by order.
Essaouira’s wide, sandy beach is a great place for windsurfing and kitesurfing amongst other water sports, but swimming and sunbathing can be difficult when the winds are strong which makes it the best chance for travelers to try their hand at a new extreme activity. there are plenty of surf shops and surfing schools, as well as windsurfing schools in Essaouira that are great for beginners. We will back to Marrakech in the afternoon, where our One day trip from Marrakech to Essaouira ends.
