Essaouira

3.9
out of 5

Essaouira is a city on Morocco's Atlantic coast, at the westernmost point of the country. It has a long history of seafaring and trading. The Portuguese built a fort there in the 16th century, and the city became a major center for the Moroccan slave trade. Essaouira's present-day charm lies in its mix of Mediterranean and Moroccan styles, and its relaxed, bohemian atmosphere. Windsurfers and kitesurfers flock to Essaouira for its strong winds and waves, and the city is also popular with hikers and bird-watchers.
