With its unique character and personality shaped by an extensive history, Essaouira is one of the most beautiful destinations in Morocco. This historic city of Portuguese origins is recognisible for its beauty, the numerous indigo coloured fishing boats in the harbour and its endless beaches caressed by constant breezes.
A paradise for surfers it is well-known internationally and is an idyllic location for travellers wishing to take a step back from the daily grind and taste the excellent local fish, savouring the smell of the sea whilst the fishermen repair their nets, the only background music the screeching of the seagulls.
Its cultural and craft side don´t go unnoticed, there are many painting studios, art galleries, musicians and artisan jewellers who display their magnificent creations both inside and outside of the Medina.
As is typical of a small city the people are friendly and are great hosts, used to greeting visitors from all over the world, as the beauty of this place is well worth a visit.
