Essaouira, Morocco

Essaouira, Morocco


The stable North African country of Morocco has featured in Friendship Travel’s winter and summer programmes for several years and is immensely popular. We are delighted to add the charming coastal resort of Essaouira to our line-up which already includes Marrakech and the Atlas Mountains.

Essaouira is on Morocco’s Atlantic coast and with a direct flight from Luton and no time difference, this is an easy option for a long weekend as well as a full week: we offer both options for single travellers.

Essaouira’s sweeping beach is magnificent, but thanks to the Atlantic winds the resort attracts more wind- and kite-surfers than beach babes, and that breeze makes for consistently pleasant temperatures, averaging 16-20C for our winter dates, and 20-22C for our early and late summer departures.

 Examples of excursions/activities available on this fantastic holiday –

  • Moroccan Cookery Day Course
  • Berber Souk Tour
  • Full day visit to Safi
  • Windsurfing/Kitesurfing

 (All at own expense and payable locally).
