Take to the road to the seaside resort on the Atlantic coast with a comfortable pick-up from your accommodation with a professional driver, you’ll discover three places before you arrive in Essaouira where you’ll stop along the way. The first will be in a lovely natural snack bar where you can rest, taste your favorite food, and receive explanations about the program.

On arrival in Essaouira, you’ll be free to wander the narrow streets and alleys of the UNESCO-recognized medina, explore the thriving Jewish quarter and meet skilled local craftsmen; linger on the city’s vast sandy beaches and enjoy the sound of Gnawa music in the lively cafés of Place Moulay El Hassan. You’ll be free to have lunch wherever you like in front of the locals, or in a restaurant if you need suggestions, which you can ask the driver for. Afterwards, you can relax alone on Essaouira’s beach and enjoy the fresh air.
