day trip to essaouira from marrakech

Depart from Marrakech to be personally transported to Essaouira. On the journey you may see a few scattered villages and camels, sheep and goats grazing in the countryside.

The vegetation changes to Argan trees that only grow in the wild and which provide berries for local goats to eat. You may even see some precariously balance on the delicate tree branches. If you wish, it is possible to stop for some Argan oil tasting in a small cooperative run by local women, where the Argan oil is extracted from the trees. This multipurpose oil is very famous for its use in cooking and cosmetics.

    The ramparts will give you an insight in to how this old seaport village was armed against the threat of invasion. Marquetry still remains a traditional specialty of Essaouira. Another beautiful attraction of the region is its tranquil beach, where you could easily spend a relaxing and peaceful afternoon if you prefer. At the end of your tour, you will drive back to Marrakech for your hotel drop-off.
