Essaouira, Atlantic Coast Day Trip

Essaouira is sea, colors, fresh fish, music and shopping. If the lively little Medina is its soul (it is the oldest part of the city, a UNESCO World Heritage Site since 2001), the port is the lung of Essaouira. Hundreds of boats return to the harbor every afternoon and between 15 and 17 the dock comes alive with the voices of the fish market.In the eighteenth century it was a commercial enclave on the road between Timbuktu and Europe, and a hippie colony in the 60s and 70s. Music is everywhere in Essaouira. Today the area is a center of surfing on the Atlantic coast.Our trip is a perfect moment to relax from the chaos of Marrakech: the town is quiet and should be enjoyed comfortably, perhaps in front of an abundant grilled fish in the stalls of local fishermen. Or with an aperitif, in a lounge bar on the beach, at sunset, while some knight gallops at the edge of the sea.Along the way we will stop to see the argan trees and their famous fruit that gives us its precious oil.
