Located to the south of Essaouira’s town centre its beach is regarded as one of the best in Morocco. Anyone travelling in the traditional Moroccan summer holiday season of late July and August will most likely be amazed by the sheer number of Moroccan holidaymakers that come here to rest and play. All through the summer the trade winds keep this part of the coast cool.
Over recent years Essaouira has grown in popularity as a destination for windsurfing and kite surfing between April and September, the windiest time of the year. On the beach, camel rides are possible for those not visiting the Sahara.
