1st day : Morocco Day Excursion to Essaouira
Essaouira Day trip: At 8:00 am, the day tour departs from your Marrakech hotel and travels to Essaouira. Prior to traveling to Sidi Mokhtar, we will first go across the Haouz plains to the town of Chichaoua, where you can stop for a cup of coffee. You'll pass through an Argan tree grove on our journey, where you might spot some goats climbing the trees. Stop and take some photos before we carry on to Essaouira.
The first thing we do when we reach Essaouira visits the harbor with its fishing port and Old Portuguese fortifications. There you can still see medieval war cannons aligned in order, overlooking the Atlantic Ocean. Then continue to the Medina (old city) with its well-preserved fortification dating to the 18th century. The major landmark of the Medina is La Scala, which was built against foreign attacks from the sea. Next, we continue to Bab Laalouj (One of the main gates of Essaouira), then to the Mellah the old Jewish quarter.
Along the way, various art shops, galleries, souvenir shops, and thuya wood craft shops are aligned in order. Choose one of the local cafes, for a delicious seafood lunch. After that, we head to a Kasbah that is famous for having served as a military bastion. If you are a beach lover. Enjoy a walk along the sandy beach of Mogador.
