Sidi Kaouki is a little pearl located 25 kilometers south of Essaouira. The place was in ancient times build around a mausoleum by the sea that attracted pilgrims from far away. Today, surfers and windsurfers perpetuate this tradition. Here you will find a place with a totally different rhythm, very laid back. Relaxation sets in naturally as soon as you arrive. There are many long sandy beaches north and south that are still totally unspoiled, secluded and beautiful.
