    Stop At: Essaouira Fishing Port, Essaouira 44000 Morocco

    At 8 o'clock you will be picked up in front of your riad in Marrakech.
    Our excursion heads west towards the Atlantic Ocean and the charming little harbor town of Essaouira. On the way we cross the valley with the argan forests. From the nuts of the argan tree, the valuable argan oil is extracted in a long-lasting procedure. Today, argan trees only grow to around 820,000 hectares in southwestern Morocco - an area that was declared a biosphere reserve by UNESCO in 1998 along with other land. The centuries-old knowledge and practices of using the tree and its fruits were recognized in November 2014 as Intangible Cultural Heritage by UNESCO. We visit an argan oil women cooperative and you will experience a vivid demonstration of argan oil production. The attractions in Essaouira are the fishing port and the fish market, where every day fishermen offer their fresh catch for sale and you can see the abundance of fish and the biodiversity of the area. The old fortifications, the city walls and above all the impressive, Andalusian-influenced medina dating back to times of the historic Mogador are worth a visit. Strolling through the narrow streets with their quaint, white houses, the blue-painted windows and doors and many small details catch your eye. Since 2001, the medina of Essaouira is a UNESCO World Heritage Site. The beach of Essaouira is one of the most beautiful in Morocco. In Diabat you visit the cafe of Jimmy Hendrix and explore the ruins of the Portuguese fortress in the sand dunes Diabat. Return to your riad in Marrakech, towards evening.
