Essaouira Beach Life………..

Essaouria’s long sandy beach is used from dawn to dusk by the local inhabitants, early morning you will find people practicing the ancient martial art of Chi Gong.

Essaouira Beach

The surfers, kite surfers and the windsurfers catch the Atlantic waves here, Essaouira on some days is one of the windiest places I have ever been so its perfect for the above sports. Don’t worry if you didn’t bring your board or your wet suit you can hire them from lots of places here in Essaouira.

 Our favorite is the hip beach bar Ocean Vagabond a place where the locals and surfers hang out and party in between wipe outs. Found at the far end of the beach from the Medina, on the road just as you enter Essaouira. Here you can hire equipment or lessons in surfing, kite surfing and windsurfing from the local experts, open 350 days of the year, serves a great lunch, and if you don’t fancy getting involved in some extreme sports its perfect place for observers to hang out on the blue and white deck and watch the action.

Close by live the lazy camels,who will carry you Lawrence of Arabia style through the sandy dunes……

There are horses and quad bikes to try too……..
