Itinerary

Travel from the vibrant city of Marrakech and embark on a journey to the tranquil coastal gem of Essaouira. A world away from the hustle and bustle of Marrakech, you are heading to a place of peace and beauty. Essaouira began as an ancient citadel on the West Atlantic coast of Africa. The name Essaouira, meaning “wall” in the Berber language, perfectly captures the fortified charm of this destination.

 

Your private tour begins at 8:00 AM with a pickup from your hotel or riad in Marrakech. Leaving the city behind, you’ll drive through lush valleys adorned with orange groves, ancient olive trees, and working farms as you travel the coast. Along the route, a stop at Cafe Afoulki in Chichaoua offers a chance to rejuvenate with a coffee or snack.

 

Resuming the journey, the landscape transforms, and the first signs of the famous Argan trees emerge. These trees hold immense nutritional, cosmetic, and medicinal value. As a relict species from the Tertiary age, they are well-adapted to the arid conditions of southwestern Morocco and are protected by UNESCO.

 

After a morning of admiring nature, you arrive in Essaouira, where ancient streets beckon you to wander and immerse yourself in the city’s rich history. Pay attention to the street names. They carry a distinct Portuguese influence because the city was renamed in the 16th century when it served as their port in Morocco. Indulge in the delicious seafood served in local restaurants, freshly caught from the sea. For an added adventure, it is possible to take a camel ride along the beach.

 

As the day comes to a close, you will be transported back to your hotel in Marrakech, reflecting on the sights and experiences of this coastal paradise. Essaouira offers a serene escape from bustling city life, allowing you to unwind and appreciate its unique blend of history, culture, and natural beauty.
