A hippie’s retreat in the 60’s, the Moroccan city of Essaouira is now a world-famous surf and kitesurf destination. It’s also a UNESCO World Heritage Site and loved by travellers for its beautiful architecture, great cafes and cuisine, and laid back vibe.
With fantastic views of the island of Mogador, a lively harbour and a fortified old Medina, there is a real charm to this seaside city. It also has a fun and hip energy that distinguishes it from other Moroccan cities.
Located close to Marrakesh and also accessible from the nearby coastal cities of Casablanca and Agadir, this is the perfect place for a weekend getaway. Once here, you can easily explore the place on foot - wander through the old streets and check out the beautiful doorways, swing by the fish market to buy the catch of the day, or find a good spot to watch the sunset over the Atlantic.
It’s easy to lose track of time here, especially once you are out in the water and catching waves. The city is hub for surfers and kite surfers - both locals who have learned the sport here and those who travel from afar every year to return to their favourite spot. It’s also the perfect place for beginners to give it a go as the city’s long and wide beach provides plenty of space and freedom for them to learn and work on their skills.

"The team at Surfari Essaouira create an ideal stay in this beautiful and historic seaside town. Everything was handled with efficiency and warmth. I received very specific surf instructions that I can practice back at my home beach. Well worth it."

"At the end of our vacation, we still wanted to go surfing somewhere around Essaouira which is the perfect place for relaxation in Morocco. We found Surfari Essaouira and it was the best decision we could have made. The riad is very beautiful, everything is super organized and the staff are punctual. The surfing with Soufiane was perfect, and in comparison to Bali, Sri Lanka and Portugal it was the best surf lesson I had so far."
Julie C, France
"We booked a surfing day for 2 people. We got picked up in Essaouira and then headed off to Sidi Kaouki. We had 2 hours of lessons, a great lunch and some free time after that to practice what we had learned in the morning at our own pace. It was super fun thanks to our patient and friendly guide Soufiane. Very much recommended."
