Enjoy the advantages of this day trip to freshen up yourself and explore the UNESCO World Heritage site of Medina of Essaouira. Essaouira is a very charming and colorful town, located on the Atlantic Coast about two hours and a half drive from Marrakesh. It is an ideal place for those who want to : unwind, have contact with people or experience the authenticity of the old Portuguese city of Mogador.
In this day trip from Marrakesh to Essaouira you'll have the pleasure and the opportunity to visit and discover a Women's Co-operative manufacturing the marvelous Argan oil, a guided visit to the Skala du Port, the municipal market, the Mellah (Jewish quarter), jewelry souks of the medina, and a handicrafts complex.
For a side-excursion within Essaouira consider a visit to Diabat, a small village at the top of the dunes, about 3 miles southeast of Essaouira. Ranch de Diabat arranges tours of high quality with quads on the beach, camels or Berber Horses.
You will have a pause for lunch at the fish-grill cafes, with wooden tables and benches laid out overlooking the sea.
Essaouira, formerly known as Mogador, is a city in the western Moroccan economic region of Marrakesh-Safi, on the Atlantic coast. The modern name means 'the little rampart', a reference to the fortress walls that still enclose part of the city.
These folks are caring and trustworthy. If you're taking the multi day luxury desert tour, it's an experience of a live time tenting and sleeping in the desert. After a lengthy ride there, the camp's service and food was exceptional. Highly recommend Top Desert Tours!Lopez, US
