Get to know the unique history, culture, and heritage of Essaouira on a trip that takes you away from the bustle of Marrakech for a relaxing day on the coast. You can see a Portuguese harbor, art, fine woodwork, and a traditional souk during your guided tour of the sights.
After you arrive in the city, get a look at the 15th-century Portuguese port built at the foot of its ramparts. In the medina, you can see Moulay El-Hassan Square, the Grand Mosque, and Siaghine Alley, and the terrace of the north bastion lets you access the marquetry where some of Morocco's best artisans produce elegant cedar crafts.
As you leave the confines of Skala, follow Derb Laalouj Street to the Museum Sidi Mohammed Ben Abdallah. Here, you can find musical instruments, local Andalusian songs, Berber Imazighen documents, weapons, costumes, carpets, and more. In the north of the city, you can visit the Mellah, Essaouira's Jewish quarter, bordered by a market that extends to Bab Doukkala.
After some time to enjoy the city's beautiful sunny beaches, return to the road for your trip back to Marrakech.
