Essaouira

Wind City of Africa

The laidback town of Essaouira, known for its forceful trade winds, attracts Moroccan and foreign tourists alike with its sweeping beaches and atmospheric, labyrinthine medina, a World Heritage Site.
Explore hidden gems such as Medina of Essaouira and Port de Pêche d'Essaouira. There's much more to do: trot along with a tour on horseback, steep yourself in history at Chaim Pinto Synagogue, get the lay of the land with Walking tours, and pick up a one of a kind souvenir at Le Souk.

Plan a trip to Essaouira easily and quickly by telling Inspirock to suggest an itinerary.

Vancouver, Canada to Essaouira is an approximately 20.5-hour combination of flight and shuttle. You can also fly. The time zone difference when traveling from Vancouver to Essaouira is 8 hours. Plan for somewhat warmer temperatures traveling from Vancouver in May, with highs in Essaouira at 26°C and lows at 18°C. Wrap up your sightseeing on the 14th (Tue) early enough to drive to Ouzoud.
