Essaouira airport

Hello,

I am just wondering how far Essaouira airport is from Essaouira town.

The riad I will stay at charges 25€ for transfer. Is that a fair price ?

Thank you !

15 kilometers to the south. 25 Euros is a standard charge.

Thank you !

Do you know how much the airport bus costs ?

Would not be as convenient but probably much cheaper !

Thanks.

Sorry, couldn't find that information but a bus shuttle service does exist. See

moroccan-moments.com/airports/essouira.php

for background details. Definately cheaper!

Thanks.

It is also mentioned in a french guide book and on the following webpage :

www.essaouira.nu/fr/essaouira_aeroport_fr.htm

The fare is 6 dirham, so roughly one euro for 2. Sounds good !

I hope this information will be useful to other trip advisor members !

It does sound good. I wonder where the bus stops in Essaouira, I.e. Near to the hotels or not.

If anyone uses the bus it would be helpful if they could post a reply.

Honestly when i travel i just want to get to the hotel. Not deal with dragging my bags onto and off of a bus which surely will not go to the hotel. Then you have to find a taxi and deal with all that drama. You're on vacation! Pay the 25€ and enjoy the ride direct to the hotel.

In some ways you are right ... On the other hand, I have already been to Essaouira. There is no rush, we will have only hand luggage ... could well use those 25€ in a better way !
