Essaouira 1 day trip Excursion from Marrakech

Visit Essaouira, one of Morocco's must see destinations and get to know this UNESCO world heritage site. The city ramparts and its 16th century walls offer astonishing views of the Atlantic Ocean. After hotel pickup, 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.

Local attractions include Sidi Mohamed Ben Abdellah Museum, the souks, the old city gates and the impressive Sqalas. You will have free time for lunch of your choice or time to relax 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. To this end, you should bring swimwear, sunblock and a towel along with you for your time on beach.

    Stop At: Essaouira Beach, Essaouira Morocco

    The Essaouira excursion from Marrakech involves a drive of around 2 hours 40 minutes from Marrakech to this delightful old coastal town. There is a lot to see and do along the way. Only one person is required per tour and departures are guaranteed daily.

    You are picked up from your hotel 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 feed. Sometimes there are as many as 20 goats sitting up in one tree. It is a fascinating sight 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.

    Our Day trip to Essaouira from Marrakech arrives in the resort and 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. Old brass cannons line the walls and ramparts protect the sea front from ancient invasions.

    There are several modern cafes and restaurants in the port city and this up-to-date culture combines with the history of the city very well. You will feel as though you are drifting in a time machine as you move from modern café to a rickety house in the medina in just a few yards.

    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. To this end, you should bring swimwear, sunblock and a towel along with you for your time on beach.

    Our return journey will leave for Marrakech to arrive back in time for 6.00 pm. Once again you’ll be able to enjoy the surrounding sunset as the sun begins to set in the late afternoon. Essaouira is a popular stopover point for most tourists visiting Morocco, and you’ll see just why when you embark on this fascinating day trip to the coast.
