After being picked-up at the airport, transfer to your accommodation in Marrakech. Enjoy a free day at leisure to explore the vibrant “Red City”. Overnight in Marrakech.
After being picked-up from your accommodation in Marrakech around 8:30am, travel approximately 3.5 hours to the beach town of Essaouira, a beautiful, colourful town which allows you to spend both exciting and relaxing free time immersed in nature and culture. Visit the city’s Souks, the city markets, lined by the ancient ramparts which open into incredible views of the wild Atlantic coastline. Essaouira’s small and laid-back souks are the perfect place to practice your bargaining skills before hitting the markets of the big cities. As well as the usual produce stalls selling fresh meat and fish or piles of aromatic spices, there are also souks for handmade jewellery or tailor-made clothing. You can also search for treasures at the flea market in La Joutia square. For the mix of Moroccan and European styles, the medina in Essaouira is listed as a UNESCO World Heritage site. As you wander through alleyways there are many twists and turns, but thanks to the French grid-style design, differently from many Moroccan towns, walking into the medina in Essaouira isn’t like entering a maze. After the tour, make your way to your hostel and have the rest of the day at leisure. Overnight in Essaouira.
Today, enjoy a free day at leisure in Essaouira. Spend the day lying on the expansive, sandy beaches, and enjoying fresh fish just out of the ocean in the markets at lunch. If you like extreme sports, the bay’s calm waters make it great for windsurfing or kitesurfing, and even if you don’t have a go yourself it’s impressive to watch. You can also take an optional ride on a horse or camel at the end of the beach or hire a bike and cycle along the beachfront promenade, maybe taking the chance to pay homage to Jimi Hendrix’s former home. Overnight in Essaouira.
It is time to say goodbye to this beautiful coastal town. Make your way to the bus terminal and catch a bus back to Marrakech, where your trip will come to an end.
