A summer by the sea in Essaouira

Essaouira, the famous Moroccan city where you can indulge in all your favourite leisure activities, such as camel trekking, visiting the famous sites, without forgetting the essential nautical activities at the seaside. Because if Essaouira seduces holidaymakers from all over the world, it is also partly thanks to its sandy coast and its precious islet, the island of Mogador.

A favourite destination for water sports enthusiasts, the city of Essaouira appears as a small Moroccan jewel bordered by the sparkling waters of the Atlantic. Endowed with a landscape that sometimes resembles the Mediterranean, and sometimes the desert, the commune of Essaouira invites you to relax on the side of its sandy coasts. If sightseers enjoy their camel ride on the seashore, kite surfers will be happy to tame the waves along the Mogador Bay.

Kitesurfing has indeed become a nautical activity that is increasingly appreciated by young athletes and experienced beginners. They will be able to train at any time and jump on the waves hanging onto a kite thanks to the kitesurf school of Essaouira. But it's not just kitesurfing that we can afford to learn and do on the shores of Essaouira.
