Essaouira is located on the Atlantic coast of Morocco and is considered to be one of the country’s most pleasant beach resorts. Whatever your tastes, this resort has it all, from the historic city walls, to a bustling art and culture scene. Essaouira is also within easy reach of local attractions such as Casablanca and Marrakech.
While the beach is undoubtedly beautiful, its main draw is its windy conditions, which are popular with thrill-seeking wind and kite surfers. There are also less windy beaches nearby for those who prefer calm waters for swimming and diving.
The mix of British and American former hippies who have settled here gives the town a delightful multi-cultural feel and friendly atmosphere. Plus, due to the price of flights, hotels and general cost of living in Essaouira, it's a good choice for a cheap holiday. Other attractions include the small but busy fishing harbour and the walled Medina, which is protected as a UNESCO World Heritage site.
