Marrakech to Essaouira day trip – itinerary:

After your morning departure at 08:30 from your riad, you set out on your day trip to Essaouira from Marrakech. Your day’s journey starts with a delightful drive through the countryside and past hilly slopes of argan trees. Here, you might be able to stop a rare sight of goats climbing into the argan tree branches to devour the leaves.

Just before Essaouira, you will visit a women’s cooperative offering argan products. Here, you will discover how nuts are processed by hand into one of the most versatile oils, an essential ingredient for culinary and cosmetic purposes.

Upon your arrival in Essaouira, you will be greeted by the town’s charming seaport, famous for its blue boats. It is here where you can choose a selection of fresh fish in this lively market to be prepared for your lunch.

Stroll along the ancient ramparts that encircle the city. These fortifications were built by the Portuguese and many of the cannons that were used to defend the town can still be seen.

Visit the Skala and ancient ramparts, which were used as a set for many famous movies and TV services, such as the Game of Thrones. This is a perfect place to take photos of your group and enjoy the incredible views of the Atlantic Ocean.

The beach in Essaouira is a popular spot for relaxation and water activities. You can enjoy a walk along the Mogador beach, either on the beach or the wide pavement alongside. You may also choose to experience horse riding or camel riding.
