I made the most of the opportunity to eat a good fish! The town is famous for its fish and seafood. It must be said that the local economy depends on fishing even more.
A little word of advice, if you want to get to know Essaouri without the hordes of tourists, it's good to go there in winter. It's true that the climate is not as mild, however, you will be able to experience Essaouira with a touch of authenticity.
Essaouira was one of the first towns that I knew of apart from the big centres of Casablanca and Rabat. What I particularly liked about the town, was that it still has an authentic side: the donkeys which are everywhere in the narrow streets of the market, the port teeming with life, the colourful stalls of the spice markets, the chant of the muezzin calling people to pray, at this moment of my visit to Morocco, everything was new to me.
There are places which leave a permanent mark on your heart and soul. For me, Essaouira is one of these. I recommend it to all travellers during a trip to Morocco. Essaouira is a fortified town facing the Ocean. Its magnificent medina is listed as a Unesco World Heritage Site. What a pleasure it is to lose oneself in the narrow winding streets, with their noises, colours and smells!
Many foreigners have settled in Essaouira, having fallen under the spell of this enchanting town where time stands still. In the summer it attracts many tourists as it is one of the coolest and most pleasant in the country.
For those who enjoy surfing and kitesurfing huge waves sweep over the long beaches surrounding Essaouira
