Essaouira-Mogador, the bride of the Atlantic
Crenellated walls, the breath of the Alizean winds, houses with white and blue facades, the color of the foam and the wave, Essaouira, the ancient Mogador is the “Bride of the Atlantic”.
It is one of those coastal towns where sweetness of life and nautical activities complement each other. One walks there quietly, in the shadow of its ramparts, those very ones which outline the contours of Astapor, the red city of the series “Game of Thrones”. We climb on these walls, we take the walkway: from there, we distinguish the Purpuraires Islands, falcons, seagulls and gulls hovering above this nature reserve. In the distance, fans of surfing, windsurfing and kitesurfing do not tire of the quality of the wind!
Then, step by step, the walk leads to the fishing port where sailors come to life; not far from there, the fish market where fish and seafood caught by night are savored. In the center, the medina unrolls the intertwining of its narrow streets. Among the most beautiful of Morocco, it is classified by Unesco. Finally, every summer, the city is immersed in music: the Gnaoua festival is held there, which celebrates Afro-Maghreb rhythms.
To welcome you, the eco-resort Mogador opens its doors. For several years now, Morocco has adopted a responsible tourism and this establishment participates in this ambition as well as the beaches around labeled Blue Flag, pledge of their quality.
Here we rest, we spend, we cultivate: the haunting Essaouira-Mogador is a destination with a thousand and one possibilities!
