Surfing in Essaouira
The unexpectedly refreshing port city on Morocco’s coast is also known as the “Bride of the Atlantic”, located a two and a half hour drive west of Marrakech.
Its UNESCO-listed medina is protected by 18th-century seafront ramparts which were used for the walls of Astapor on the television series “Game of Thrones”.
Strong “Alizée” trade winds make the city’s crescent beach popular for surfing, windsurfing and kitesurfing. Enjoy the quality winds and join a private lesson to learn the sport of kitesurfing. Conditions are typically ideal any time of year to learn and practice kitesurfing. The surfing equipment is included and the lessons are suitable for all skill levels.
