Wind City of Africa

The laidback town of Essaouira, known for its forceful trade winds, attracts Moroccan and foreign tourists alike with its sweeping beaches and atmospheric, labyrinthine medina, a World Heritage Site. Stately 18th-century ramparts protect the meandering streets of the oceanside town, dotted with rustic whitewashed houses and arts-and-crafts stores. Day-trip opportunities are plenty, as Essaouira's rural surroundings house picturesque villages and forest trails. On a holiday in Essaouira, you can check out the local seafood specialties, or spend your days surfing and swimming on the sandy shore. Essaouira is in Marrakech-Tensift-El Haouz Region. Inspirock's itinerary builder makes planning a Morocco trip simple and quick.
