Essaouira and the Atlantic Coast

The city of Essaouira is on the Western Coast of Morocco and has been inhabited since the 5th Century BC, although the city as it’s seen today originated in the 1700s. It was the first Moroccan seaport and revolutionised trading with Europe. Today, it’s primarily a fishing village with a multitude of cultural posts including small arts and crafts businesses and several galleries.

Essaouira is also home of the annual Gnaoua Festival of World Music. The coastline both to the north and south is a treasure trove of fortresses and cities established under the Portuguese regime. With wind and kite surfing on offer in this region, Essaouira is popular with those who like to be active during their vacations, whilst offering plenty for families too.
