Best Day Trips From Marrakech To Essaouira Detail:

Your day journey from Marrakech to Essaouira begins with a drive through the Haouz plains to Chichaoua hamlet, where you'll stop for coffee before continuing to Sidi Mokhtar. You will pass through an Argan tree forest along the route, where you may see some goats climbing the trees. Make a picture stop before continuing on to Essaouira.

To see the extraction of Argan oil (also known as liquid gold or Moroccan oil), you will visit a local women's cooperative and discover how some excellent cosmetic items are produced locally using the luscious Argan oil.

We shall go to Essaouira from here. Upon arrival, you'll have time to explore the lovely city at your leisure. From my experience, exploring Essaouira on your own is simple: The locals are very friendly, the Medina is relatively tiny (in comparison to other Moroccan ancient towns), and its streets are well-maintained. You most definitely do not need a guide for your city trip. You may easily tour the Medina on your own, since its streets run parallel to one another, unlike the maze-like Medinas seen across Morocco. If you insist on hiring a guide, your driver will assist you in finding one.

To begin, you may see the waterfront, which has a working fishing port and historic Portuguese defenses. Overlooking the Atlantic Ocean, you may still see medieval military cannons arranged in order. Continue to the Medina (old city), which has its well-preserved 18th-century fortifications. The Medina's most recognizable feature is La Scala, which was constructed to stave against foreign assaults from the sea. You may proceed to Bab Laalouj (one of Essaouira's major gates) and then to Mellah (the city's ancient Jewish district).

Numerous art galleries, souvenir stores, and thuya woodcraft businesses are lined up along the route. Choose a wonderful seafood lunch at one of the local eateries and then make your way to Kasbah, which is renowned for having served as a military stronghold. If you're a beach lover, take a stroll along Mogador's sandy beach and watch the locals play beach ball. Why not join a game for a few minutes if you are bold enough? Essaouira's inhabitants are very nice!! If not, you may sunbathe while admiring amateur kitesurfers and windsurfers.

Drive back to Marrakech late in the afternoon, and your full-day trip to Essaouira will conclude with a drop-off at your hotel or the closest car-accessible location to your riad.
