Essaouira Holidays

If you say Essaouira (pronounced “es-sweera”) long and slow, it sounds like the soft, peaceful whisper of tangy sea breeze that whistles through the exotic foliage, narrow Moroccan alleys, and historic seafront fortifications of this gorgeous coastal city.


While some may familiarise a holiday to Essaouira with France's Brittany region (not such an odd comparison, since it was designed by the same architect who designed Brittany’s famous port town, Saint-Malo), its traditional Moroccan tendencies are infinite: souks and stalls are bountiful, and accompany the aromas of wood and spice that encase the city.


Often dubbed the “Wind City of Africa”, Essaouira also attracts those with an adoration for water-sports, as its breeziness offers one of the best settings for wind- or kite-surfing, while choppy waters make it an excellent year-round surfing spot. Those not fuelled by adrenaline may prefer exploring the history surrounding this prestigious UNESCO World Heritage city, whose forts were built in the 18th century. Lined with handsomely carved Dutch cannons and honey-coloured ramparts which rise from the sea, it’s no wonder this ancient walled citadel was featured in the megaseries Game of Thrones.


Unleash your inner Khaleesi with a cultural holiday to Essaouira. Worried about expense? Don’t be! At loveholidays.com, we offer many cheap holidays to Essaouira and more, with low deposits starting from £49pp and monthly payment options available to all!

Whereas most visitors looking for a break to Morocco will head towards the mayhem of Marrakech or the sun-soaked resort of Agadir, Essaouira offers something in between. The souks might not match up to those found in the former, but there’s still plenty to experience and it’s possible to do so without being harangued at every turn. And though the beach is too windswept to compete with the silent shores of Agadir, the city of Essaouira holds so much light and beauty within its fortified walls that visitors will be too charmed by its quirky character (the very same character that lured Jimi Hendrix here in the Sixties) to even notice.
