Port de Pêche d'Essaouira, Essaouira

4.3
Take a stroll around Port de Pêche d'Essaouira to see one of the primary commercial and cultural areas of the old town in full swing. Snap photos of the wooden fishing boats as they bob along the jetties and come back in with the day's catch. Flanked by the old city ramparts and the windy, wild Atlantic, the port represents one of the most scenic parts of town. Choose a freshly caught fish at one of the local stalls, where the cook will grill it for you on the spot, and serve with salad and a drink.

  • The fishing port of Essaouira is to be done in the late morning for the crowds and the e Te of fish. Evening for the lights. Lots of people, lots of locals and perfumes that you will not forget
