During this excursion we will visit Essaouira, the pearl of the Atlantic Ocean, which is World Heritage Site by UNESCO and preserves the authenticity of a city lost in time, something that has made Essaouira an essential place for people who travel to Morocco.
In the past, Essaouira was a portuguese city that created corners with amazing stories carved behind its wall, which was designed by Europeans engineers and guarded by cannons with views to sea. However, not only its interior is splendid. Its beach is endless and is the perfect place to do sports like surf or windsurf, due to the trade winds.
Our tour will start with the pick-up at the hotel or riad in Marrakech. Later on, we will go to Essaouira.
Along the way, we will pass through the big Argan Forest, where we will make a stop in one women´s argan oil cooperative, where oil is extracted from argan nuts to make beauty and cosmetic products.
Once in Essaouira, we will have free time to see its fortress, its fishing port, its labyrinthine Medina and its endless beach, where we will have a look to the lifestyle of its inhabitants and taste the delicious fish and the freshly caught seafood.
There is the possibility of riding a horse, a dromedary or Quad on the beach too. The contrast between its dunes and the vast sea will take us to a state of inner peace that will give us energy to visit the rest of Morocco.
We will be back in Marrakech about 7 pm.
