Essaouira is a coastal city, known for its ancient history which dates back many centuries B.C. Fossils, pottery, and other archeological remains discovered there prove the reality of this distant history.
Nowadays, Essaouira is one of Morocco’s most seductive tourism destinations thanks to its perfect infrastructure, modern hotels and traditional ones (Riads), restaurants of high quality. In addition to several kinds of water sports.
As a tourist, you can experience the magic of this city and embark upon a kind of adventurous activities. You shouldn’t miss the exotic traditional Souk (market) in the Medina, which is a mixture of spices, cereals, clothes, fish and meat shops. Then have a trip around the Medina to see one of UNESCO's World Heritage sites, look admiringly at the thick and strong walls built many centuries ago when it was a fortified city, and to add more joy to your trip, you just have to visit Skala, a beautiful place down by the harbor, offering a magical panorama of the Atlantic Ocean and the walls standing against the waves as they strike constantly. The fascination is not really complete until you stand by one of the many cannons and feel the gentle breeze, then at that very moment, comes to your mind that it’s a feeling you’ve never experienced before, and that Essaouira is the sole city to offer such feeling.
