On this day trip, we will visit Essaouira or the pearl of the Atlantic, a world heritage city that maintains the charm and authenticity of a land lost in time. Essaouira has become an essential stage in your trip to Morocco.

Essaouira was a Portuguese city that left corners full of history behind its wall. Not only is its interior splendid, its beach is full of beautiful kilometers of coastline to the south.

Let yourself be carried away by the time in its quiet and pleasant streets.

The excursion to Essaouira will start with the pick-up of the hotel or riad where you are staying. Then we will head towards the coast to reach “the Pearl of the Atlantic.”

During this journey, we will travel through immense forests of the well-known Argan, where we will stop at one of the cooperatives where the Argan oil is made, which is used in beauty, cosmetics and wellness products.

Once in Essaouira, you will have free time to admire its strength, the fishing port, the labyrinthine medina, the endless beach, see the daily life of its inhabitants and, why not, taste the delicious freshly caught fish and seafood.

There is a possibility of going to the beach on horseback, on a dromedary or on a Quad. The contrast between its dunes and the extensive sea will take you to a state of relaxation that will replenish your energy to continue discovering the most beautiful corners of Morocco.

We will be back in Marrakech around 7:00 p.m.

Beautiful place

Very good experience, spending the day on the beach with beautiful scenery is worth it. The driver Rachid and Omar animated the trip and made it more enjoyable with music in Spanish. A success to spend the day in Essaouira.

Great Trip

A very enjoyable trip, air-conditioned, the driver drove well. His name is Mohamed. The duration of the trip is two and a half hours one way and two and a half hours back. He picked us up very punctual and made stops for the toilet and a drink.

City with charm

A charming city! The trip lasted about 10 hours, of which 4 hours were in Essaouira. On the way to the city we visited an argan oil cooperative and we could see how the goats eat in the trees (very curious)! We have made stops to have a drink and go to the bathroom on the way there and back. Many hours of travel but worth it to get to know another part of Moroccan culture!
