Marrakech, Sidi Kaouki, Essaouira
Breakfast and departure towards Essaouira. The vegetation changes as you travel along the road: vineyards, olive groves and finally the Argan trees. This plant is present only in Morocco and its fruit produces an oil with multiple healing and aesthetic properties. Overcome Chichaoua, first a straight, then a curve, again a straight and suddenly the ocean. From the hills surrounding the city of Essaouira you can admire the bay in which it lies. Continue south and you will reach the beach of Sidi Kaouki where you can relax in the sun or stroll on the very long semi-deserted sand belt admiring the evolutions of the surfers. Returning to the road, if desired, you will reach a women’s cooperative for the production of argan oil. Here you can observe the fruit processing method and taste some of the typical products such as oil, argan honey and amlou.
In the afternoon we arrive in the medina of Essaouira, a UNESCO heritage site, surrounded by high walls worn by salt and wind. At sunset, in the square located between the port and the walls you can participate in the daily life of the locals who relax in the late afternoon air in an atmosphere of other times.
Overnight in riad.
