How to get there
Airport: Marrakech: 105.6 mi

Many visitors to Essaouira fly to Marrakech but Agadir is also a possibility. Both are about 170 km from Essaouira. the drive from Marrakech is very straightforward and takes about 2.5 hours, the drive from Agadir is much more scenic but due to the winding coastal road it takes a good half an hour longer. Taxis from either cost in the region of Euro 75 one way. From Marrakech there are also comfortable air conditioned coaches, notably Supratours, which go to Essaouira several times a day. Car hire is also easily available.
