A long coastline. During the summer month of August the place is packed. I didn't see a lot or many women in the beach, mostly men and no women in the water. The weather is nice enough, windy and overcast. The waves were choppy and...More

That's the word better describing the beach in Essaouira in July. Fine sand stormed by the wind, a lot of locals, football games on the beach.

There are lots of activities that can be done. You might take a ride on a camel or a horse, try windsurfing, or just take a walk. Although it's a bit windy, since there's open ocean.

If you're looking to catch a pick up game with the locals venture to the beach and play on the blacktops! Moroccan passion for pick up games was amazing!

Just to stroll along this amazing sandy beach is a pleasure. It is so flat and wide it doubles up at the weekends and evenings into full size football pitches. There are a few sunbeds, small restaurants and even a couple of bars selling alcoholic...More
