For a small reasonable entrance fee, you get cannons, fortress walls, great views and a clear understanding of the important role the ramparts played in Essaouira’s history. The walls and fortifications are in excellent condition and safe to move around in.

Must see well worth the 10 Dirham entry fee. Great views, beautiful old walls and cannons. Not too busy, can see fish market, ports and across the waves to the city. No hassle and no one selling anything.

It's quite difficult getting up on to the ramparts and you can only walk on a small part of them. They do bring you close to the dramatic waves and it's well worth the search. You can also 'wave watch' from the harbour wall.
