Essaouira Beach, Essaouira

3.6
#2 of 41 in Beaches in Morocco
Feel the breeze down at Essaouira Beach, a sandy stretch of coastline known for its strong trade winds. Whereas other beaches in Morocco attract sunbathers and swimmers, the conditions here lend themselves far better to certain water sports, such as windsurfing, surf boarding, and kite surfing. A good selection of beachside restaurants have popped up along the shoreline, joining the water sports rental outfits and beach umbrellas (used primarily for protection from the sand, rather than the sun). Many camel excursions begin on site, with guides taking you on a trip into the desert interior away from the coast.
