“Windy”
Reviewed July 17, 2013

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.

“A very long beach with loads of space”
Reviewed July 17, 2013

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, surf board hire and repair, horses and camels for hire and a large carpark.

“Sand and Sun”
Reviewed July 15, 2013

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.

“Lovely week in Marrakech”
Reviewed July 12, 2013

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 locals fully dressed at the beach :)

“Cleanest beach in Morocco”
Reviewed July 3, 2013

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).
