The coast  of Morocco

From Asilah in the north to Laayoune in the south, Morocco’s 1,000-kilometre Atlantic coastline is a succession of blue and white citadels, small fishing villages and wild, sandy beaches. Any Morocco holiday is complimented by adding a coastal experience to your personal itinerary. From Marrakech, one can easily add a few nights in either Essaouira or Oualidia (under 3 hours drive). From Fes one can either head north for Tangier or west to El Jadida, Oualidia or a bit further south Essaouira or the wonderful areas around Agadir. Even southern Morocco can be reached within a five hour drive from Agadir. Not to be missed!

Essaouira

With its brilliant blue and white architecture, windswept beach and easy-going charm, Essaouira is a popular excursion for day-trippers from Marrakech. It’s also a great place to kick back and relax for a few days.  

Probably the best-known coastal town of Morocco, Essaouira has been occupied over the centuries by the Carthaginians, Romans and Portuguese. Behind the 18th century sea walls are thuya wood workshops, artists’ enclaves and silent alleyways where cats sun themselves and veiled women emerge from studded doorways. The harbour is a photographer’s dream, with fishing nets laid out on the quayside, boats unloading their catches and the smell of freshly-grilled sardines and lobster in the air.

Philip and I thoroughly enjoyed our holiday.

Dear Max

Thank you for your email.  Philip and I thoroughly enjoyed our holiday. 
The riads we stayed in were excellent and we must mention Riad Cinnamon in particular as they were most helpful to us and were so obliging in every way. 

Unfortunately nothing really went wrong on the holiday so no negative feedback to give ...

A place where plenty holds your attention but nothing – and, as importantly, no one – demands it.
