Day trip from Marrakech to Essaouira starts at 8 a.m.. We will explore medina and admire its Portuguese fortifications of the 18th century. We continue to visit a forest of argan tree. We will enjoy lunch in the port / beach area of Essaouira one of the best place to eat seafood. Then in the afternoon 4pm we return back to Marrakech.
Essaouira is protected by a natural bay partially shielded from wave action by the Iles Purpuraires. A broad sandy beach extends from the harbour south of Essaourira, at which point the Oued Ksob discharges to the ocean; south of the discharge lies the archaeological ruin, the Bordj El Berod.
Essaouira's climate is Mediterranean with Oceanic influence. The gap between highs and lows is small and summers are warm where winters are mild.
WHAT TO EXPLORE :
The medina is home to many small arts and crafts businesses, notably cabinet making and 'thuya' wood-carving (using roots of the Tetraclinis tree), both of which have been practised in Essaouira for centuries.
Essaouira presents itself as a city full of culture: several small art galleries are found all over the town. Since 1998, the Gnaoua Festival of World Music is held in Essaouira, normally in the last week of June. It brings together artists from all over the world. Although focussed on gnaoua music, it includes rock, jazz and reggae. Dubbed as the "Moroccan Woodstock" it lasts four days and attracts annually around 450,000 spectators.
