“Nice for a stroll”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed October 14, 2013 via mobile

Massive beach, pretty clean, nice view. If you walk on the wet send you don't get too hammered by the sand. The side opposite the Medina as horse and camel rides and kite/wind surfing. A few locals trying to sell you stuff but not too bad.

“Fun waves”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed October 7, 2013

As we came in the fall, there was little wind and we could stay on the beach. We had fun in the waves. Didn't really do any swimming. The sunbeds and mattresses have seen better days, but then they didn't cost much either.

“OK for abit of sun and a dip”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed September 21, 2013

Spent 5 days in Essaouira. The beach is abit like Weston-Super-Mare with hot sun and clean sea. Not much else to do, only 1 shop near the beach with limited items to buy, but they do have drinks and suntan lotion. The beach draws in the young Moroccan guys that like to show off with there football skills or just boys being boys. We did watch a small band of them going around talking to the ladies which was putting people off so left the beach. There are some sellers that approach you on the beach that can get abit annoying.
