Essaouira is a port city located 2.5 hours away from Marrakech, Morocco. It is the perfect day trip as a colorful small city with an unique vibe. On the way to Essaouira from Marrakech you can spot the famous goats who stand on tree. If you have not seen pictures before, look the goats up right now!
As you walk along the port of Essaouira head on up the Citadel for the best views over the port and city. Behind the Essaouira Citadel you find fishermen with their catch of the day for sale. We also found a small pop up restaurant that had the freshest fish around with more food in the meal than we could handle.
The best way to experience Essaouira is by walking through the historic walled city of the port. With its relaxed feel, there is no rush to explore the colorful stores around every corner. Take your time talking with the local artisans and find the most interesting gifts for yourself or family back at home.
We hope that these pictures have inspired you to start planning your next trip to Morocco. If you have any questions, comments or just want to let us know which photo is your favorite please let us know in the comments below.
