A jewel on the Atlantic, Essaouira is where the hospitality of the locals meets the mix of cultures, past and present, and where its fascinating history is reflected in its art, music and architecture.
Essaouira is also a paradise for water sports thanks to the gusty Alizés winds which are responsible for its fresh, moderate climate.
We will help you organise your tour round the town, visiting art galleries, the historic architectural jewels hidden away in the Medina’s maze of bright, lively lanes and alleyways, the souks, the port, restaurants offering traditional Moroccan dishes or fresh fish.
After a long day meandering around Essaouira, and a great meal of grilled fish at the port, what would be more welcome than a relaxing Hammam ? Just the occasion to discover the real benefits of Argan oil, truly a treasure of the area.
And what better way to end a great day than by enjoying dinner in one of the town’s many excellent restaurants.
Whether as a couple or as a family, rambling around the local countryside will enable you to discover the Berber culture and its customs, as well as admiring the magnificent natural sites.
We can organise trips in 4x4s to wild beaches; visit the region’s traditional markets, make a stop at one of the region’s feminine cooperatives where you can discover how products based on argan oil are produced. A great way to enjoy the huge hospitality of the local population.
OUTING ON HORSES OR CAMELS
Discover the wild beaches on horseback or by camel. And, as a superb backdrop, a magnificent sunset could well be the most exciting, romantic events of your holiday.
We can organise an outing from our Riad, from which you will be collected and returned.
