Tour Plan:

Marrakech-Essaouira (191km- 2 h 40 min)
The Essaouira excursion from Marrakech involves a drive of around 2 hours 40 minutes from Marrakech to this delightful old coastal town. You are picked up from your hotel/riad or hostel in Marrakech before 8.00 a.m. and we make our way across the stunning landscapes of the R207 route to the coast.

Along the way, we shall stop to see the argan trees where small goats clamber up the low branches and an absolute must when it comes to getting a photo opportunity. Also along the way, we will stop off at a women’s cooperative where argan oil is produced. The oil is extracted from the kernels of the tree and is a delicious accompaniment to a Moroccan bread meal or simply for drizzling over a pitta bread. The oil is also used as a beauty product for skin and hair treatment.

Then we will continue the road and we will arrive in the port city where you’ll see the vast expanse of the North Atlantic Ocean. The vibrant old town (medina) is a world heritage site, and it won’t take you much to realize just why.

After walking through the medina, we will go to the port where you will be amazed by the thousands of friendly fishermen, the life in the port, and at the end, you can enjoy a delicious meal of fresh fish and seafood prepared with great care. Then you can walk on the beach. There is a long prom on the beachfront where a sandy beach welcomes bathers and those who wish to relax in the sun on the golden sands of this charming city. Around 4 pm we will take the road to Marrakech. Once again you’ll be able to enjoy the surrounding sunset as the sun begins to set in the late afternoon.
