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.

Travel to Essaouira, Morocco

Excellent! A wonderful villa and highly recommended!

5 of 5
We spent one week in this fabulous villa. We are a family of four adults and enjoyed staying in this very stylish and spacious holiday home. Everything has been designed carefully and we were impressed with the furnishings, and particularly the lighting, indoors and outdoors. The pool is large and the grounds are spacious with different eating and seating areas. The caretaker, Brahim, and his wife were very helpful and courteous and looked after us during our stay. They are very discreet, but available if you need them. Brahim’s wife cooked for us on two evenings and the food was delicious and plentiful. The owner, Bruno, has been extremely helpful with information and made the whole booking process straightforward and simple. We would love to stay here again in the future and would highly recommend it. Thank you.

Superb villa and location for a family holiday

5 of 5
We have just come back from a lovely stay at this well thought out villa. Perfectly calm and peaceful; off the beaten track made for a very calm and enjoyable stay. Plenty of space for 6 people and the pool a good size for young children. Will be back!
