The ramparts of Essaouira, like most high points in a city, provide the best spot for photos of the medina, the ramparts around the medina, the blue fishing boats and the laid back community members going about their day's work; cutting fish, cooking fish, mending nets and so on. Close to the port there is a gate. Next to the gate is a door to the corner tower of the ramparts. It is well worth the 5 MAD to go up and soak in the view. In the medina itself, be sure to walk along the accessible portion of the wall and look out at the crashing waves and seagulls. It is free and also a lovely place to be at sunset.
