Drive three hours to reach the gorgeous walled town that hugs the Atlantic where you will stay two nights.
En route stop for lunch at a local Fromagerie, to see cheese making and understand the process of expelling the famous Argan nut oil. Later meander the medina and port area.
Essaouira is a delightful town flanking the Atlantic with its ancient ramparts and busy fishing harbour designed by the Frenchman who designed Brittany’s most famous port town, Saint-Malo. Once you enter the walls, it is infinitely Moroccan.
