Essaouira

3.9

Wind City of Africa

The laidback town of Essaouira, known for its forceful trade winds, attracts Moroccan and foreign tourists alike with its sweeping beaches and atmospheric, labyrinthine medina, a World Heritage Site. Stately 18th-century ramparts protect the meandering streets of the oceanside town, dotted with rustic whitewashed houses and arts-and-crafts stores. Day-trip opportunities are plenty, as Essaouira's rural surroundings house picturesque villages and forest trails. On a holiday in Essaouira, you can check out the local seafood specialties, or spend your days surfing and swimming on the sandy shore. Essaouira is in Marrakech-Tensift-El Haouz Region. Inspirock's itinerary builder makes planning a Morocco trip simple and quick.
