    Myself and my partner stayed in this delightful oasis of calm in October. It was my 4th time time here and I was so warmly welcomed back. Perfect hostel, perfect hosts, perfect location and perfect vibes. Keep it up Brahim and Magic! The room we were put in was incredible. Will be returning (again!)

I don't believe that you will have any trouble- as long as you are discreet and do not display overt affection in public. After all- there are girls travelling in pairs all over the world.
Dress should be fairly modest in Muslim countries.

Things to bring to Essaouira

by suvanki

Lightweight sturdy luggage if staying a while,

A daysack if just there for the day. As always, comfy shoes- there's plenty to see, - some of the pavements, steps etc can be uneven or slippery- so flatties with a good grip.

Loose cotton silk or linen clothing - it can be hot and humid in Summer.
A lightweight jacket , fleece or jumper -the evenings can be a bit nippy at times. - Sunscreen is a must- even though I was there in January, the sun was quite hot.

-All essential medications- there are pharmacies, but not sure what they stock.

- wet wipes, tissues, antibacterial hand gel- not all washrooms are equipped, or clean!

- immodium etc- just in case! - plus rehydration salts.

- throat pastilles - apparently the damp atmosphere can be condusive to sore throats! Everything you can carry! Essaouira is a photographers paradise.

The sunlight can be very bright, bouncing off the whitewashed buildings and paving- so filters etc might be handy.

A zoom lens, for less intrusive pics of local life Windsurfing is popular here- so there are some specialist shops.

There is a long sandy beach- though it is quite exposed- to the elements , as well as 'curious' onlookers - so 'decent' bathing gear etc. Mp3 player with recording facillity- to capture the 'local sounds'

Favourite brands of alcohol- cigarettes etc.

Alcohol isn't always freely available- and hotel bars sometimes close early.

The local beers are quite good, and the wine was drinkable.

Binoculars for views from Skala du Port etc.

Bubble wrap - there are some good cheap pottery shops here

Simply the best

by chrisvandenbroucke about Le Dauphin

A wonderful place: typical Moroccon furniture, low seats and tables, leather moroccon lights. Kind of dark.
Looked too expensive for us but wasn't.
Tajines cost 30-4o Dh, couscous even less and they serve spaghetti with a lot of meat, sauce and cheese for only 30 Dirham.
We had to wait half an hour but were awarded with exquisite food..

Argan Oil

by PierreZA

On the way from Marrakech, you will see many Argan trees, often with goats feeding. Many different products are mane from the nuts, including oil, creams etc. A few kilometers before you descend to Essaouira, you will find an all women industry preparing the products. A tour explains all the phases of production. You can also buy many of the finished products here.

Essaouira Beach

by barryg23

Though it wasn't quite summer weather during our visit, we spend our last morning in Essaouira walking the beach. The beach is just outside the walled town to the South and stretches 10 km down to Cap Sim. After crossing the Ksar River you come across the runins of a castle in the sand - the inspiration for a famous Jimi Hendrix song.
