Home > Day Trip to Essaouira from Marrakech


Located about 3 hours west of Marrakech, a day trip to Essaouira is a very popular activity. Originally a Portugese fishing village, Essaouira is now home to many artists and musicians who call this place home. Spend some time wandering through the village and stay for awhile. Enjoy activities along the long beach front, whether a walk in the surf, try your hand at surfing, a camel ride, or just a book and swim.

The medina in Essaouira is relaxed and easy to navigate and the shops are filled with all sorts of treasures. Visit the working port and meet the fishermen just back with their daily catch and select your lunch for grilling by a nearby vendor. Essaouira is the place to buy pure argan oil. Its also great for relaxing, music, art and seafood.

Your trip will leave bright and early in the morning from your Riad or hotel and return in the evening. The ride each way includes a comfort stop for food and bio break.
