Marrakech to Essaouira day trip


Explore the tranquil seaside city of Essaouira on this private 1 day tour from Marrakech. This walled coastal city — a late-18th-century fortified town — on Morocco’s Atlantic Coast has a casting port (with a plenty of seagulls at an ever-increasing cost) and a historic medina full of local artists peddling their products.

Lunch is not included, although there are many good eateries nearby that provide fresh local fish and shellfish. Hotel pickup and drop-off in Marrakech are included.

Highlights of a Day Trip from Marrakech to Essaouira

  • Enjoy the scenery of the Atlas Mountains.
  • Stop beside the well-known goats tree.

Itinerary of the 1 day excursion from Marrakech to Essaouira

After departing Marrakech on your personal 1-day excursion to Essaouira, you will be carried individually across the wide and awe-inspiring Moroccan scenery to Essaouira.

On the day excursion, you may witness a few scattered communities as well as camels, sheep, and goats graze in the countryside.

The vegetation then shifts to Argan trees, which only grow in the wild and provide berries for the local goats to eat.

If you choose, you may avoid oil tasting during a small cooperative journey by local women, where the Argan oil is collected from the trees; this multi-purpose oil is well-known for its purposes in cooking and cosmetics.

A bird’s eye view of Essaouira, a fascinating and creative blue and white village, lies nearby. When you get at Essaouira, you may explore its strange treasures at your leisure.

Stroll around the quays and watch fisherman unload their catch of the day as fishing boats come to land, or eat at one of the area’s many fine restaurants serving fresh fish and shellfish.
Essaouira is a charming and colorful town where you may tour the medieval walls and visit the Medina, which is full with local craftsmen selling their thuya wood products.

The walls in this coastal Moroccan city are testimonies to how this historic maritime community was well-armed against the possibility of attack.

Essaouira’s parquetry is still a typical speciality, and the region’s serene coastline is another great feature where you can easily spend a pleasant and peaceful day. The one-day trek from Marrakech to Essaouira has come to an end.
