Essaouira – Location guide

Flickr credit : Pab2944

Deserts and flea markets aside, Morocco is an easily accessible taste Africa.  Essaouira, found in the Marrakech-Tensift-Al Haouz region, is a cocktail of Arabian-African culture.  The tranquil harbour was built as the first seaport and used to establish trade for the country’s near-by capital, Marrakesh.  Faithful to its roots, the city’s original 18th century foundations still nestle between the modern day architecture.  Today, the city is a windsurfing and kitesurfing haven, with quad biking and cooking courses available for the active traveller.  Relish in the best of both worlds by taking a camel ride on the beach, a truly authentic way to appreciate the Atlantic coastline.
