The salty air and the screaming sound of seagulls are characteristic of the charming town of Essaouira, but it has so much more to offer and really is a must-see on your trip to Morocco! Essaouira was built by the French and was the first trading harbor of Morocco in the late 18th century. It will steal your heart with its artistic and relaxed vibe, and offers a great hide away from Marrakech to do some shopping, go to a real Moroccan hammam (bath house) and enjoy a relaxing massage, and enjoy the great fresh seafood and vibrant African music.
Pick up at the hotel by your driver and guide in the morning. You will leave Marrakech for the coastal town of Essaouira! Essaouira is a small and charming town, definitely worth the visit. Built by the French as the first trading harbour of Morocco in the late eighteenth century, the medina has a simple layout easy to discover, with thick city walls surrounding it. The Skala ramparts with its many cannons offers you a spectacular view on the Île de Mogador. Your guide will take you on a city tour through the medina and Skala, and you will also pay a visit to the bustling fish market just outside the city walls. Enjoy fresh fish during lunch and vibrant African music playing from the little shops of the medina. You can stay until the late afternoon here, and make your way back to Marrakech before dinner, where your driver and guide will drop you off at your hotel.
