The walled town of Essaouira lies on the Atlantic coast, north of Agadir, and due west of Marrakech. This town is not as old as some, having been built approximately 200 years ago, in a reasonably orderly fashion.
On the southern side of the town is a fishing harbour where, at certain times of the day, local fishermen cook freshly caught fish and serve them up at simple tables.
Though not particularly developed as a tourist destination, Essaouira has a fine beaching stretching to the south, lined with hotels. This Atlantic coastline is often windy and attracts wind surfers.
The following golf courses are in the
essaouira area -
