We really enjoyed our stay at the beachfront of Essaouira. There is a lot of activities like camel riding, horseback riding, quad riding, surfing, kite surfing or just relaxing in the sun or one of the restaurants close by. Attention: there is quite some police...More

I went relatively early for a walk/run on the beach - there was no wind, low tide so the beach was wide and perfect for walking on. There were a number of early morning soccer matches on the go along the way! Lots of people...More

To go to Essaouira today APARENTLY has nothing to do with Essaouira in 1987 but somehow this would nottotally be true. Why? Because there are still two top aspects: its people and the fish caught daily by the fishmongers. We bought a lobster and prawns...More

A very nice beach. Long and peaceful. Did not go for a swim, but went for a walk, and for a camel ride. The sunset is stunning.

Good beach which goes on for miles south heading out of town. However it’s in real danger of being spoilt by the amount of rubbish, particularly plastic around the high tide mark. We visited in 2017 and the situation seems to be getting worse. Hope...More

Clean, safe, lots of snack places (but tastefully done), some showers and toilets, and the old town is 10 minutes walk. Water is very gently shelving - walk 100meters out to get waist deep; but it was cold being Atlantic. Waves can get big -...More

We went on a sunset camel ride which was fantastic, thank you Mostafa from Lima Dromadairi, and then walked back to the Medina along the beach. With the sun setting, the dunes, the island...it is a beautiful setting. However, it is spoilt by the amount...More

You would have to do a little more research on this. We did not see any marriage offices that would accommodate this, however I am sure there is. Bear in mind, this is a fishing village and there might not be a licensed... More
