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).

                                                Even Better this Time

                                                5 of 5
                                                This was our second visit. We did not think it could be any better, but we stayed longer - 2 and a half weeks - so we found even more to enjoy. Fouad arranged the taxi from the air[port and was there late in the evening to make sure we settled in. Karima looked after us well. We had home-cooked meals which were tasty and at the just the time we ordered. The house feels like a second home ! We also found a few more local eateries and takeaways. As always, the local people were very friendly, and seemed pleased that we spent time with them. All in all, another great holiday. Liz and Pete

                                                FANTASTIC Amazing stay

                                                5 of 5
                                                Arrived at the property late at night but were still greeted by the home owner and his wife lovely people we were shown around this beautiful amazing villa. We were made to feel at home straight away. The villa was better than expected we all enjoyed spending as much time as possible there wether it was in the heated pool in the gym or just sun bathing in the beautiful surroundings. The villa is enclosed within a high boundary wall which is great as kids enjoyed running around and having fun. The mornings were great as the maid prepared A full amazing morrocan breakfast with tea coffee freshly sqeezed orange juice and plenty more. Also had a wonderful experience in the Hamam with an amazing relaxing massage and body scrub. The hospitality was 5 star. There is also lots to see not far from the villa on the coast with the souks camel horse rides quad biking and more. I would like to thank Said Hithet his wife and the Maid for a wonderful stay and a great holiday. Will definetly return.

                                                We would recommend this property.

                                                The accomodation and the location of Casa Guapa exceeded our expctations on our first visit in 2014, hence our reason for returning. We are a senior couple who appriciate the ambiance of these apartments, in particular the lovely rooftop terrace. Also its location in a hastle free environment. The welcoming staff led by Hyatt,provided all the information one required. The immediate neighbourhood of the apartments, has many restaurants, to suit all pockets and taste, with the additional benefit of cheap local taxis, to explore this most interesting of towns. One can be as active or inactive, in the calm atmosphere of Casa Guapa, or engage with the beachside sports and travel further afield in this area of the Real Morocco. Thank You Nadine and your team.
