Essaouira

Essaouira

Essaouira is a laid-back fishing port whose narrow streets are lined with whitewashed, blue-shuttered houses. Long considered as one of the best anchorages of the Moroccan coast, during the 5th century BC the Carthaginian navigator Hanno established a trading post. The actual city of Essaouira was only built during the 18th century by Mohammed III, wishing to reorient his kingdom towards the Atlantic for increased exchanges with European powers. Today it is a city of charm and relaxation with gorgeous ocean views and plenty of optional activities on offer.
