LONG SANDY BEACHES & A LAID BACK ATMOSPHEREEssaouira is a beautiful Atlantic coastal town, directly to the west of Marrakech and reachable in just over two hours by road. Essaouira is famous for its laid back atmosphere and long, sandy beach and has become a hotspot for beach-goers, including surfers,and kite surfers. The town has gone through something of a revival and has become a hip destination with a number of new chic boutique hotels and riads opening.
Further up the Atlantic coast and slightly further from Marrakech than Essaouira is the historic city of El Jadida. Located 90 km south of Casablanca, it dominates a natural bay of great beauty and was a Portuguese settlement known as Mazagan at the beginning of the 16th century. There are a number of high end hotels, and the introduction of golf courses, casinos and boutiques have paved the way for tourism.
In between Essaouira and El Jadida there is also a superb boutique resort at Oualidia.
