The Marrakech/Essaouira region
Essaouira's medina is UNESCO world heritage listed town that has a chilled out feel. It has a fabulous blue flag clean beach which stretches for miles and there are numerous watersports available including wind surfing/kite boarding. There are great cafes and restaurants along the beach front and camels and horses can be riden along the beach.
Within the medina there is so much to explore, many streets, alleyways and hiiden passageways to explore, souks selling Moroccan handicrafts/carpets/jewellery/fresh food and many art galleries where local artists exhibit.
There are so many fantastic eating places within the medina to suit all tastes and budgets and also bars which have live music on regularly. There are fresh fish cafes in the main square and the historic port and ramparts to explore. Essaouira has a very calm, relaxed feel where you can get involved in as little or as much as you like.
10mins from Essaouira is the little village of Diabet where Jimi Hendrix lived for a while and where he wrote the'castles in the sand song'from.
The port and the ramparts are steeped in local history and great to explore. There are festivals on in Essaouira throughout the year. the main festival being the GNAWA festival in June where musicians from all over Morocco come to play-a great experience!!!!!!!!
