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!

As before the house has everything you should need, clean, comfortable, cool during the day to escape the heat of the day. Enjoyed listening to music in the lounge at night although addition of tv useful for news.didnt need to use fire in lounge but lovely to have option. Also having two toilets useful, with use of a washing machine Neighbours remembered us which was touching and lovely to reconnect with them again. Local shops and restaurant great. Medina fascinating and fun to eat, shop and barter at. Enjoyed a brilliant camel trek to name just one adventure of many! The house is peaceful, serene and provides for all your needs. Highly recommended, we will return! Ps. Siad is professional and excellent at arranging airport transfers or any thing else you should need. Many thanks x

The apartment is very clean and has everything necessary for a comfortable stay such as kitchen utensils, spare sheets and towels. The apartment is in a typical Morrocan neighbourhood with local shops where it's easy to buy food. Only a 10-minute walk to the Medina or beach makes this a perfect location. I would recommend this apartment without hesitation. Enjoy!
