Essaouira, formerly called Mogador by the Portuguese who in the 16th century built the actual fortress, is a charming mid-sized seaside town with a very lively port. Situated just outside the old city walls, it is teeming with activity: fishing boats going and coming, fishermen repairing their boats and their nets, selling their fish etc. All through the day, you can buy freshly caught fish, raw or cooked, in one of the little stalls that border the sea.
One thing you never tire of is strolling through the Moroccan markets, the famous “Souks” where you can buy all sorts of handicraft, spices and other food stock.
After the noise and excitement of Marrakech, you will fully appreciate the relaxing atmosphere of Essaouira. And contrary to other areas in Morocco, here you will never suffer from the heat: the average temperatures are 18°C in winter and 24°C in summer!
Before leaving Essaouira, don’t forget to visit one of the local Hamams (the Moroccan version of the Turkish bath) where at an additional charge you can also get yourself a delightfully relaxing massage.
If you are a surfer or into wind/kitesurfing, you'll be pleased to know that Essaouira is an internationally renowned area for lots of fans.
