The Sea Wall
The BeachEssaouira

Essaouira - Windy City, Africa. A laid back fusion of Portuguese, French, Arabic and Berber influences since the current walled city was founded as a trading post in the 18th century.

Now a UNESCO World Heritage site you can wander the car-free medina, browsing the souks and soaking up the atmosphere. Or head down to the 8km curve of beach, just five minutes walk from Dar Leila, for kite surfing, wind-surfing or catching the rays.
