Beautiful quiet beach (although I went late August, early September). As it's popular with surfers, it's not a very good beach for sunbathing, as it can be windy sometimes (sand blows everywhere). I recommend for surfers and horse riders (you can go horse riding for...More

After being on the windy beach of essaouria this place was great. It's less windy and less busy. No one bother you for crap paintings or hash cakes, you just share the beach with surf lovers, camels, horses and donkeys. I loved it.

The beach is big, but not ideal for sunbathing. There are camels and horses walking up and down the beach, and its veryyyyy windy. But, if youre up for surfing and eating fresh seafood on the beach this place is ideal.

Amazing beach - it's massive. Great surfing, windsurfing and kitesurfing. Camel rides and horse rides along the beach all day and at sunset. Make sure you haggle on the price.

You don't need to be a surfer to "get" this place. Simply put: This place is just fantastically wild.

This beach is quieter than essaouira with fewer people trying to sell horse/ camel rides. It is very much aimed at water sports but also a fun place for younger children to build sand castles. There is a strong undercurrent so the children didn't go...More

I first came here 17 years ago looking for windsurf and surf. Now I have come with my sons 17 and 15 to spend 2 days after Essaouira. It is lovely. My sons adore it.

When in Essaouira its a must to visit Sidi Kaouki beach if you are a surfer. If not then there is little else to do there. Long beach with miles of sand but peppered with the discarded waste of this area that has been dumped...More
