“Blows the cobwebs away”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed May 8, 2013

Love the walk to get to the ramparts and they give you a glimpse of the what the town would have been like. I love the view out to see and watching the locals fishing and siting on the rocks. You can get the full force of the sea winds.

“worth the journey”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 1, 2013

we spent a week in marrakech and one day in essaouira but wish it had been longer ...... what a lovely place ! The souk so much more relaxed not a lot of hassle easy to navigate and friendly people, the haggling was fun! beautiful throw a really good deal.we ate lunch at one of the stalls selling and cooking the fish and it was fabulous , we picked a seabass which was huge perfectly cooked and served with bread, water salad ,chips and choice of drink for £40 seems a lot but we were stuffed and you would be unlikely to get a fish like this anywhere else.relaxing little cafes and lovely weather. next time will just book essaouira for a few days for a relaxing break.

“I dreamed to visit them!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 28, 2013

Essaouira, former called Mogador, is one of the most known Maroccan city and its walls are very impressive. You must climb on the ramparts to see an amazing sea and city landscape.
