Sand, Surf & Sun Dec 29, 2010
The beach of Essaouira is located immediately south of town, and stretches as far as the eye can see through the haze and spray. Famous for its wind-swept waves, all kinds of surfing, kite surfing, wind surfing and just mellowing out for a while in the sun. Of course, it's swimmable, but expect the water to be cool (at best).

The beach has light brown, fairly packed sand and is very wide; stretching on for a few kilometers. It is a stark contrast to the wild, rocky shore that is directly in front of town. The beachfront has a long, paved walkway along it and is still mostly unhindered by big hotels and buildings. There are, however, decent restaurants periodically along the sea wall.

Visitors can also hire camels or horses to take for a ride, just south of town. Beach loungers with parisols can also be rented along its length.

Surf's up, dude!
