Holiday information


Relaxing Essaouira

Located by the sea, lively Essaouira is a wonderful place at which to finish your Moroccan adventure – and a complete contrast to the Atlas Mountains. Built in the 18th century on the orders of King Mohammed III, ‘Swira’, as it is pronounced, is surrounded by ramparts, within which lies a winding, colourful medina. Another of the city’s attractions is the immense sandy beach, not to mention the wide choice of restaurants serving fresh fish and seafood landed at the harbour.


You can add a stay in Essaouira to any of our privately guided walking holidays in Morocco.
  • Travel by taxi to Essaouira
    You will be transferred by taxi (included) to Essaouira. As no cars are allowed in the centre, your driver will accompany you on foot for the last leg to Ryad Watier, where you spend three nights.
  • Explore Essaouira
    You might like to start in the atmospheric Marché des Poissons et Epices in the centre of the medina, and stroll along the rambling streets and alleyways leading off from here. Another district that is worth exploring is the Mellah (old Jewish Quarter).

    Beyond the centre, you could head to Skala du Port for some of the best views of the city, or take a stroll along the vast beach.

    Camel and horse rides along the sand and through the dunes can be arranged locally. It’s worth waiting until evening for this, so that you can watch the sun set.
