Make a holiday rental beach riad or accommodation in Essaouira, Morocco your home away from home

The city of Essaouira, Morocco looks from every angle as if it has been lifted from a holiday guide. The Jewish, Berber, Carthaginian, Portuguese and British influences manage to combine beautifully to create a city of a thousand attractions. Located on the Atlantic coast of Morocco, Essaouira boasts a wonderful, sweeping beach, making it one of Morocco’s finest coastal resorts. Blissfully laid back and surprisingly cosmopolitan, Essaouira is a perfect retreat, especially for windsurfers and surfers, but also for those wishing to enjoy the wonders of Morocco at a relaxed pace.

Things to do in Essaouira, Morocco

Essaouira’s charm is engulfing, with white and blue riads interspersed with art galleries, traditional workshops and wonderful restaurants, all encased by the famous red sandstone walls that protect Essaouira. There are a vast range of sites to explore from Essaouira accommodation, from the magnificent ruins of the Sultan’s Palace to the famous Sand Castle which is claimed to have been an inspiration to Jimmy Hendrix. The Sidi Mohamed ben Abdallah Museum is a fantastic place to start your tour from Essaouira accommodation, as it tells the history of local traditions, art and music. The fish market, which sells the daily catch from Essaouira’s fishing fleet, is an absolute marvel, well worth investigating. Any good Essaouira guide will document the best sightseeing routes.

Taking an Essaouira beach riad is the perfect way to enjoy the best of the city. Essaouira beach is never crowded, stretching for as far as the eye can see around a sweeping bay. The golden sands of Essaouira beaches, from Plage de Safi in the north to the beach around the inspirational Bordj El Berod to the south, are perfect for lazy days in the sun, although when the seas are rough, swimming in Essaouira can be dangerous. Known as the ‘windy city’, windsurfing in Essaouira is fantastic. There are some excellent Essaouira windsurfing and surfing spots, especially to the north near Moulay, which, despite having poor access, has excellent conditions for both surfing and windsurfing, although it is not for the feint hearted!

Places to visit on holiday in Essaouira, Morocco

On the outskirts of Essaouira are a number of excellent riding stables, offering lessons and hirelings to visitors, regardless of you level of experience. There are some wonderful rides to enjoy along the coastline and into the interior of Morocco.

Weather in Essaouira, Morocco

Essaouira enjoys a wonderfully steady climate, making an Essaouira beach riad a magnificent escape all year round. Average monthly temperatures hover around the 20°C mark throughout the year, although July, August and September are the warmest months. Rain is almost unheard of between June and October.

Travel to Essaouira, Morocco

Although there is a small airport in Essaouira, accommodation in the area is best reached from Marrakech. Essaouira Airport only receives flights from Casablanca and Paris Orly (ORY), so the majority of visitors from the UK fly to Marrakech Airport (RAK), which receives Ryanair and easyJet flights from London and Manchester (MAN).

Simple country serenity

5 of 5
Having toured Morocco for the past ten years,staying in riads,apartments,hotels and tents, I loved the tranquil location,with spacious rooms and plenty of space at Villa Tazmin. Far from the maddening crowds,almost like stepping back in time with friendly neighbours,children,villagers and a constant flow of animals outside the front door. Essaouira medina and the beaches were in easy reach by cheap buses,shared taxis,and lifts offered by the kind locals.We always support local trade,and used the nearby shops,and a brisk walk to numerous shops opposite the university at Ghazoua.There is a new supermarket there if you require items not available locally. The magic of Essaouira will be in our memories for years to come,and we encourage visitors to explore by day, and night, for a taste of the "real" Morocco, this is as good as it gets. Thank you Said & Martyn for all your help,advice and hosting us, we will return.

We are a group of old school friends who have been to Essasouiria several times. This is our first experience outside the medina. Lovely spacious property, every one with their own lovely bedroom and bathroom. Karina looked after us so well with a lovely breakfast on the roof terrace each morning. From booking the property to having a car arranged to pick us up on arrival and return to the airport everything went so smoothly. Had a totally relaxing time. Very easy to hail a taxi and now with a fixed rate, made travelling around simple. We loved our holiday there and would definitely stay at this lovely Riad again.
