Summer Holidays to Essaouira
Essaouira Sun Holidays Review and Guide
Visit the 12th century ramparts, picturesque fishing port and secret passageways of the Medina on a summer holiday to Essaouira, Morocco and you’ll see why it is the preferred location of many a film maker. Notable scenes from Alexander, Othello and Rendition were filmed in a place that is now a UESCO World Heritage Site. An Essaouira summer holiday is also an opportunity to slip over the dunes to visit the unique eco-resort at nearby Mogador with its cafes, museums, libraries, gardens and golf course designed by Gary Player all delivered on ecologically sound principles.
The essence of a summer holiday to Essaouira lies in the beauty and history of the town. There are the usual activities to delight any traveller to a coastal resort with plenty of sunshine, a broad sandy beach and some water sports (wind surfing and kite boarding). The main attraction is however, the atmospheric port and town which has been an inspiration for arty types since the 50s. View the sardine catch coming in amidst the colourful chatter of gnarly fishermen and squawking seagulls or walk the battlements of the Medina imaging yourself to be on the lookout for Portuguese buccaneers. An Essaouira summer holiday is a feast for both eyes and imagination.
You might be drawn to a summer holiday to Essaouira for the music. The annual festival in June is world renowned or you might want to find that essential Moroccan handicraft before enjoying some r&r in lively Moulay El Hassan Square. Whatever, your Essaouira summer holiday will be enchanting.
