Essaouira is an enchanting port city facing the Atlantic Ocean, known as a great surfing destination with strong coastal winds. With amazing surf spots as Safi Beach and Essaouira Beach, these sandy breaks are perfect for beginners and intermediate surfers. Also Essaouira Bay is the ideal surf spot for beginners and relaxed surfers where you’ll find plenty of wave, kite, and windsurfers. The islands of Mogador filter the swell and let beautiful waves come to Essaouira for perfect surfing conditions, especially during the surfing months from September to April. Essaouira is located on a peninsula surrounded by forests and overseeing the ocean.
The best time of the year to go surfing in Essaouira is from late September to April, when the area full of point break gets its most consistent swell. Even though there are 300 days of sunshine a year, you’ll need a wetsuit in the water year-round, as the ocean temperature remains cold.
Essaouira has been called the Pearl of Morocco where artists from around the world get together in the Medina. The harbor city Essaouira is famous for its seafood, cooked in combination with local produce as olive oils, herbs, vegetables, cheeses, wines, and pomegranates. The romantic medina restaurants with hidden gardens serve you the local and traditional Moroccan food with sophistication and maximum taste. Essaouira nightlife is trendy and romantic, with Taros Bar as the best place for a sunset, the trendy candlelit hotspot La Patio with red furnishings, and Bab Laachour with its busy (alcohol serving) front terrace.
