Essaouira day trip from marrakech

Essaouira is a beautiful and unique location to visit. This is why you can’t miss our Private Essaouira Tour from Marrakech.
Enjoy the most emblematic sites of Essaouira known for its peaceful and artistic atmosphere, starting your private tour with your official guide.
It is a port city of Morocco, located on the western Atlantic coast. Its medina (old town) is protected by walls located off the coast. These walls, designed by European engineers, are called Skala Kasbah. Ancient metal cannons guard the walls, which have views of the sea. The strong trade winds make the city’s beach the perfect place for surfing, windsurfing and kite surfing.
This will include visiting the medina on foot, where we will discover its 18th century walls. We can admire the famous gates that surround it, some of the best known are Bab Doukkla and Bab Sebaa.

Day: MARRAKECH – ESSAOUIRA – MARRAKECH

6 HOURS DRIVE: 08H00 – 19H00
You are picked up from your hotel or hostel in Marrakech before 8.00 a.m. and we make our way across the stunning landscapes of the R207 route to the coast. Along the way we shall stop to see the argan trees where small goats clamber up the low branches and feed. Sometimes there are as many as 20 goats sitting up in one tree. It is a fascinating sight and an absolute must when it comes to getting a photo opportunity.
Also along the way we will stop off at a women’s cooperative where argan oil is produced. The oil is extracted from the kernels of the tree and is a delicious accompaniment to a Moroccan bread meal or simply for drizzling over a pitta bread. The oil is also used as a beauty product for skin and hair treatment.
Our Day trip to Essaouira from Marrakech arrives in the resort and port city where you’ll see the vast expanse of the North Atlantic Ocean. The vibrant old town (medina) is a world heritage site, and it won’t take you much to realize just why. Old brass cannons line the walls and ramparts protect the sea front from ancient invasions.
There are several modern cafes and restaurants in the port city and this up-to-date culture combines with the history of the city very well. You will feel as though you are drifting in a time machine as you move from modern café to a rickety house in the medina in just a few yards.
There is a long prom on the beachfront where a sandy beach welcomes bathers, and those who wish to relax in the sun on the golden sands of this charming city. To this end, you should bring swimwear, sunblock and a towel along with you for your time on beach.
Our return journey will leave for Marrakech to arrive back in time for 6.00 pm. Once again you’ll be able to enjoy the surrounding sunset as the sun begins to set in the late afternoon. Essaouira is a popular stopover point for most tourists visiting Morocco, and you’ll see just why when you embark on this fascinating day trip to the coast.
