    Essaouira is a Moroccan city that has a favorable microclimate that ensures a mild winter and a cool summer. Not to mention a beautiful beach, protected by the islands of Purpuraires. 

    That is why, on our Day Trip to Essaouira, you will see the iconic blue fishing boats and the art galleries situated around the Medina and have a stroll down Essaouira beach.

    Itinerary of the Day Trip to Essaouira

    A charming small town, Essaouira is the old Portuguese city of Mogador. It was fortified by a French architect Vauban follower. These influences have given a beautiful and unique result. Today, the city is gradually becoming a city of artists. 

    When you step foot at Essaouira, the first thing we’ll do is go to the harbor, which has a fishing port and historic Portuguese walls. There are still medieval military cannons lined up facing the Atlantic Ocean. Then, proceed to the Medina (old city), which has a well-preserved 18th-century fortress. La Scala, a notable landmark in the Medina, was created to defend against foreign sea invasions. We next proceed to Bab Laalouj (one of Essaouira’s main gates) and the Mellah, the historic Jewish district.

    Various art galleries, souvenir stores, and thuya wood craft businesses are lined up along the path. Artisans of Essaouira are famous for inlay on root growth cedar and offer a wide range of items from the souvenir to parts of furniture and works of art.

    For a wonderful seafood meal, visit one of the neighborhood cafés to have an authentic lunch break on your Day Trip to Essaouira.

    Following that, we go to a Kasbah that was formerly a military fortress. If you enjoy going to the beach, take a stroll around Mogador’s beautiful coastline. You may sunbathe or take a dip in the ocean (depending on the weather) while watching amateur kite surfers or windsurfers.

    Join us on this Day Trip to Essaouira for a full tour of this amazing coastal Moroccan city. Gnawa Festival is held there in the summer, so make sure to come back to enjoy the music. Feel free to contact us if you need more information.
