Essaouira Tailormade Holidays

Originally encircled by the old walls, the town of Essaouira has now extended beyond the walls, but the town is still small enough to explore on foot. The 18th century town is laid back and is a popular destination for windsurfing and kite surfing, due to the wave forming winds in summer and spring.

The beach is in front of the Medina and there are plenty of cafés with terraces. Blue doors and window frames abound as do the artists shops and jewellery stalls. Islands are scattered around, dramatic with their rocky shores and crashing waves. Relaxing in Essaouira is the perfect antidote to the bustle of the Imperial cities.

Thuya wood carving workshops are well worth a visit, as well as walking along the ramparts and visiting the spice and jewellery souks and the fishing port.

Orson Welles filmed Othello in Essaouira and the open shot of the film is of the ramparts of Essaouira. There is even a park area that has been re-named Orson Welles Square.
