What to expect

Departing from Marrakech, you will head to Essaouira, a charming coastal town located 2 hours west of Marrakech.

The enchanting city consists of a 10 km sandy beach (windy most of the time), offshore islands, a fishing port, and a walled Medina with great Portuguese architecture.

You will first stop at the town of Chichaoua for a coffee break before you continue to Essaouira.

Upon arrival at the town, meet your local guide who will first lead you to the Skalla, a bastion located southeast of the Medina, walk through the labyrinthine streets of the Medina while enjoying Gnaoua Music played at every corner, and watch the craftsmen making some beautiful thuya wood crafts.

From here, you will continue to the fishing port where you will watch local fishermen selling their daily catch of fresh seafood.

After time at leisure for a seafood lunch in the port, and maybe a walk along the beach, drive back to Marrakech. On the way back, visit a local Berber ladies cooperative processing Argan oil, AKA the liquid gold.
