The itinerary of Marrakech to Essaouira Tour:
Marrakech to Essaouira Private Full-day Tour begins the moment you are picked up from your location in Marrakech before 8.00 a.m.
Marrakech to Essaouira, now that’s a journey that promises a mix of adventure, culture, and natural beauty! If you’re looking for a change of pace from the bustling city of Marrakech, then a trip to Essaouira is just what you need.
It’s time to head to Essaouira. After a 2.5-hour journey is just as stunning as the destination, with breathtaking views of the Atlas Mountains and the rolling countryside. We will stop at a women’s cooperative where argan oil is produced along the way. 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 pitta bread. The oil is also used as a beauty product for skin and hair treatment.
And when you finally arrive in Essaouira, you’ll be blown away by its charm and beauty. This coastal town is known for its charming medina, stunning beaches, and vibrant atmosphere.
The Essaouira medina is a UNESCO World Heritage site and is a maze of narrow, winding streets lined with colourful buildings, markets, and shops. It’s a great place to wander and get lost, soaking up the atmosphere and discovering hidden gems along the way.
One of the main attractions in Essaouira is its long, sandy beach, which is perfect for sunbathing, swimming, and surfing. The town is a hub for surfers, with its consistent waves and relaxed vibe.
For those interested in history, Essaouira has a rich cultural heritage, with the old Portuguese fortifications and the Skala de la Ville being must-visits. These historic sites showcase the town’s strategic importance over the centuries and offer stunning views of the city and the ocean.
Foodies will love Essaouira, with its delicious cuisine influenced by both Berber and Arabic traditions. The town is famous for its seafood, with local restaurants serving up freshly caught fish in a variety of ways. And don’t forget to try the local specialties, such as the traditional “thuareg” tea and the sweet pastries known as “gazelle horns.”
And when the sun sets, Essaouira comes alive with its lively nightlife. From rooftop bars with stunning views of the ocean to live music venues and open-air cafes, there’s something for everyone.
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 from Marrakech to Essaouira Private Full-day Tour 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.
