Essaouira

Essaouira

Essaouira Port

Lying due west of Marrakech on the Atlantic coast, Essaouira is a magical town. Fronted by dramatic sea bastions and surrounded by walled fortifications the town's status was assured by the fact that during the 19th century it was the only port south of Tangier open for European trade. With its crescent beach and ramparts, the town has an enjoyable relaxed feel. Watching the sun set over the sea while standing atop the ramparts, or drinking sweet mint tea in the main square as the night falls are enchanted moments. The town is joyfully traffic free. Men pushing laden carts keep the town moving.
