Everybody loves the fishing port near Essaouira after a hectic day touring Marrakesh.
The beach might be a bit windy, but it is beautiful and is ideal for watersports like kite surfing that require wind. In the medina there is hardly any pressures and the hassle to purchase goods that you buy in the big cities. The white painted houses with their blue doors and the wide straight streets make you conscious that you were at the seaside.
This is in addition to the seagulls screeching overhead and the smell of fish down by the harbor. This is a fantastic place to chill out for a couple of days and eat the freshest sardines.
