A gently glowing sapphire gem on the Atlantic coast, Essaouira perches delicately as a weave of old peeling streets and ancient cultures next to the expanse of flat, wet sand running down to the sea.
Deliciously slow, achingly trendy and with delightful boutiques, galleries and local cafes dotted throughout the maze of creeping lanes and ancient staircases, there are countless hidden gems to be discovered between the beautifully preserved medina and the old, bustling port.
It also provides a wealth of incredible holiday experiences that any traveller can add to their holiday itinerary. Curious minds can explore that streets and medinas with their lens, under the watchful eye of a local photographer. And the more adventurous traveller can learn to surf the Atlantic coast’s awesome waves or discover the local beaches on horseback.
