Essaouira Day Tour from Marrakech

 

Essaouira Day Tour From Marrakech Departure for our excursion at 08:00 a.m., then towards Chichaoua village where we will stop for a cup of tea before we continue to Sid Mokhtar.

Then continue to Essaouira a port city and resort on Morocco’s Atlantic coast. Its Medina (old city) is protected by 18th-century seafront ramparts called the Skala de la Kasbah, which was designed by European engineers. Old brass cannons line the walls, and there are ocean views. Also, the city is known for its annual festival of Gnaoua music. UNESCO considers the city to be an international heritage, situated 181 kilometers away on a day trip from Marrakech to Essaouira.

We will cross an argan tree forest, where we might spot some goats climbing the trees. Also, we have the opportunity to visit an argan cooperative on the way to watch how the argan oil (liquid gold or Moroccan oil) is extracted, as the region is known for its argan oil.

We will see how women in the cooperative work hard and with enthusiasm; to get the oil from the argan nuts to make cosmetics.

Then Essaouira, which used to be called Mogador, is in the southwest of Morocco, and it is a beautiful fishing port with a beautiful old windswept Medina.

We will admire the navy gate and the Skala with its rows of bronze cannons. We will appreciate its nonchalant charm, its white houses, welcoming terrace cafés, and its delicious fish. The unique atmosphere adds to the flux of people in the narrow streets that have inspired artists for centuries. After your visit, we will drive towards Marrakech to arrive in the evening.
