Welcome to Essaouira

City description  

A stay in Essaouira, opposite the mythical island of Mogador, is a stay in the Atlantic Ocean. Protected from the impetuous ocean by its ramparts, every possible shade of blue is in evidence in this Moroccan walled city. From its endless skies that get lost in the azure waters to the bright blue color that characterizes the souiri fishing boats, Essaouira is an enchantress with the fragrance of the sea. 

But in order to discover Essaouira's real charm you really need to head for its beach. As you stretch out on this immensity of fine sand, fully relaxed, you can admire the view across the medina of Essaouira, a UNESCO world heritage site.

Nestled behind the walls of the city, this spectator of centuries past offers a great insight into the Morocco of yesteryear with its pristine facades, adorned with the inevitable blue shutters. With so many sports available on the beach and its coast road, you're sure to end up feeling very hungry. And when that happens, you absolutely must taste Essaouira's pastries, particularly the gazelle's horns which are famous throughout the country.
Once your taste buds have been satisfied by the subtle blend of almond and orange blossom, head off to the Madada workshop. Against a backdrop of stone arches and ancestral prestige, you will discover the secrets of a cuisine that's unique in the world at this famous school of Moroccan cuisine; because traveling is also about the taste buds!
Another essential element of Moroccan culture in Essaouira is Dar Souiri, which reveals itself to be a building of tolerance, character and refinement. Set around a courtyard bathed in light, this nineteenth century masterpiece fills the heart of the visitor with an avant-garde and delightfully Moorish architectural harmony.
