day trip: marrakech to essaouira


Essaouira formerly known as Mogador, is a city in the western Moroccan economic region of Marrakesh-Sa, on the Atlantic coast. The modern name means "the little rampart", a reference to the fortress walls that still enclose part of the city.

Visit to the Port and its ramparts of Essaouira, the old Medina and Scala. In the Port you will eat fresh fish in a local restaurant. You will have the chance of making a camel trekking ride on the beach (not included). The ambiance on this old city is fascinating as you will walk yourself in the ancient Portuguese streets of the Old Medina of Essaouira also known as Mogador. Return to Marrakesh in the evening.
