I arrived to Essaouira beach expecting it to be extremely windy and impossible to sunbathe or swim. However, when I arrived the beach was very calm and not crowded at all, which was fantastic! Expect to be hassled by various people to go horse/camel riding...More

This is not a place for sunbathing as the wind whips the sand around, but it makes a nice walk and paddle.

A great beach. Apply sun screen, extremely misleading conditions- the cool wind hides the blistering strength of the sun. Good beach football, often is join-in-able. If sitting amongst other Maroccans, don't strip off entirely, out of respect.

Very popular sand beach - great for swimming, parasailing, kitesailing and surfing, playing football....the footpathed promenade follows the beach and the main road all the way down to where the road turns to the next beach of Diabat. At this point there are small cafes,...More

A nice even beach, with a good stretch of fine sand, clean. Stroll the promenade, get a tan and have a dip in the sea. Not too crowded.

Be aware that the temperature difference between Marrakech and Essaouira beach can be almost half. (Essaouira @16:00 23ºC and Marrakech @18:00 42ºC) Lovely beach nice sidewalk and view. It almost feel you're somewhere in Europe, beside the fact that you will see a lot of...More

So clean, little chilly but it really adds to the way the city grooves. It is my favorite beach (and I have been to almost all of them in Morocco).

Unfortunately the wind was blowing whilst we were there for the day and whilst we didn't swim, we did walk the beach to the far end and back, visited the fish market, and shopped in the Medina. The atmosphere in Essouaira is so relaxed after...More

Its a huge beach nice, clean and wide but not somewhere you can go and relax because of the wind. The most we managed was a walk along to the beach bar/club at the far end (with the wind behind us). You really can't imagine...More

You would have to do a little more research on this. We did not see any marriage offices that would accommodate this, however I am sure there is. Bear in mind, this is a fishing village and there might not be a licensed... More
