Essaouira is the place that we get the best feedback from our clients. It has a genuine year round climate, it is enough “off the beaten track” to still feel intimate and it has a wonderful selection of places to stay in the town itself or in the villages just outside. Now with the direct Ryanair flights from London we feel that it is a perfect place for a beach short break. In fact we challenge you to think of a better place for a long weekend by the coast only 3 hours from London! For complete relaxation we have chosen Rebali with its pools, gardens and stunning beach but you should consider staying in the town itself. In either case the transfer time is around 15 minutes from the airport.
Day 1 - ARRIVE AND STRAIGHT TO THE COAST
Arrive at Essaouira airport where your driver will meet you and take you straight to Rebali. There is great food and the staff soon feel more like family members (have a look at the Tripadvisor reviews). You can stay in a room or suite but the best bet is to have a private villa.Accommodation
DAY 2- 3 - GET BUSY
There is so much to do at Rebali and the surrounding area you will struggle to fit it all in and many people choose a week or more just here. A visit to Essaouira is essential for shopping or an evening meal – also:
– Quad bike tour of the dunes
– Moroccan cooking demonstrations
– Camel trekking on the beach
– Amazing horse riding
– Surfing and kitesurfing lessons
– Visits to the local Berber village for lunch
And if this is too much rushing around send your partner on a tortoise/chameleon hunt in the Rebali gardens and relax by the pool or sneak a visit to the spa…
DAY 4 - HEAD FOR HOME
Your driver will collect you at your riad for the short trip back to the airport and your flight home, assuming you manage to get all your souvenirs and memories within your baggage allowance….
