Day Tour Overview

Explore the serene city of Essaouira on a day trip, located on the coast of Morocco. Marvel in its walled ancient Medina, walk through its beautiful beach and enjoy a fresh fish and seafood lunch in a local restaurant overlooking the atlantic ocean. .

Detailed itinerary :

The Essaouira excursion from Marrakech involves a drive of around 3 hours from Marrakech to this delightful old coastal town. There is a lot to see and do along the way. You will be picked up from your Riad/Hotel in Marrakech at 8.00 AM and we make our way across the stunning landscapes of the route to the coast. Along the way we will stop to see the argan trees where small goats climb up the low branches to eat from them. Sometimes there are as many as 20 goats sitting up in one tree. 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 Marrakech to Essaouira day trip 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.

Our return journey will leave for Marrakech and we will arrive around 6 AM. 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.
