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!

Travel to Essaouira, Morocco

It was so good to be back in Essaouira, and your house felt like home and was a great base to explore the surroundings and perfect for R&R while soaking up the sun (we were so lucky with the weather, when we left Saturday it rained!). We loved the comfort and coziness of the house, sitting at the fire at night, great shower, good beds and kitchen is so well equipped. Rachid is the perfect house manager: friendly, helpful, discrete and punctual! My husband and I were fantasizing over having our own house in Ghazoua… that says it all I guess! We definitely want to come back again!

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.
