Day Trip from Marrakech to Essaouira
Essaouira is at once familiar and exotic with Huge walls surrounding the city and making it like an impenetrable fortress, its harbor filled with blue boats and old fishermen and the soaring seagulls screaming over the town. At first sight, you could mistake it for a city in Brittany, France…
Morocco is a collector’s dream cave, so a day trip from Marrakech to Essaouira should be on the “To Do list” of every art and fabrics collector. While the souk in Mogador is relatively smaller and slower-paced than the ones found on the biger sister -Marrakech-, You can actually find authentic ceramics and special rugs made from recycled fabrics. The tousirst never gets bored touring in the souks of Essaouira, and most of the visitors confirm that it is a cultural choc for them to find such nice and rare things here.
The fish market is not for faint hearted but seeing the haul with its prehistoric-look is an essential experience while visiting Essaouira. The fish market also offers a wonderful selection of highly fresh sea food on the go, you can buy it from the fishermen at a very good price and grill it right there. The fish market is at the end of the peninsula in town.
Portuguese ramparts One could say that these ramparts are the only trace and influence left in the city from Portuguese architecture, the ramparts solely protect Essaouira from the crashing waves of the Atlantic and provide some exquisite sunset views.
Departure at 8h00 from Marrakech towards Essaouira, Visit the Port and its ramparts of Essaouira, the old Medina and “Scala”. In the Port you can eat fresh fish in a local Essaouira restaurant. You will have the chance of making a camel trekking ride on the beach (not included). The ambiance on this old city is fascinating as you will walk yourself in the ancient Portuguese streets of the Old Medina of Essaouira also known as Mogador. Return to marrakech in the evening
