Running in Essaouira

Is it safe for a woman to run alone in Essaouira? If so, is it ok to run in t-shirt and shorts?

It is very laid back here. Keep to main roads or run parallel to the beach where it is more populated which may make you feel safer. Running in the medina will be tricky as it is quite crowded and some of the streets too narrow.

Best advice is not to wear clothing too short, revealing or tight fitting although you can get away with most things. It is just advice aimed at not offending the local people who have fairly strict and old fashioned rules about clothing and behavior in public places.

You should be able to run along the 'promenade' area going south from the medina.

There are loyts of locals walking along there but they didn't seem to be bothered or bother the visitors.
