Nice break from the Medina.

Encourage everyone to view the sunset from here. Incredibly peaceful and calm.

“A must-see for sunset”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 24, 2013

Make sure to get here in good time to nab a seat on top of the walls and watch the sun sink while the north Atlantic swells crash in on the rocks beneath. Glorious - but bring a jacket if it's late in the season - the temperature drops dramatically as the light goes!

“Seaside Seduction”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed November 19, 2013

Be there for sunset, enjoy the tranquility and above all breath deap. Life is good, and as the sun gently falls from the sky, fading over the Atlantic Ocean, with Africa's warmth still holding on, it's hard not to smile, ah yes, life is good.

“Dramatic views”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 11, 2013

The Atlantic crashes against the rocks, little boys play on the ramparts, cats doze in the sun, elders discuss weighty matters. It's a great spot to begin your visit to Essaouira
