Travel Tips for Essaouira

Production of argan oil

by sachara

In the area around Essaouira grows the tree named argan (Argania spinosa). This tree is unique to Morocco and produces a fruit like an olive, which is pressed for oil. The oil can be used for cooking and for the body.

On our way from Marrakech to Essaouira and on a trip south of Essaouira we visited cooperatives of local women producing products of argan oil. In those places signposted along the road (picture 2 & 5) you can see the production of argan oil (pictures 1, 3 & 4) and also buy the products.

Byproduct paste.

by JLBG

When the almond paste has been completely extracted, the remaining paste is a brownish paste the is still a good food given to goats. It is possible to visit Argan oil producing cooperatives but I had not the opportunity to do it.

The port Squala

by JLBG

It is possible to walk on top of the tower. The sight is gorgeous on the port, the medina and the Purpuraire islands that protect the harbour. It was on these islands that was prepared the crimsom colour extracted from sea snails.

Skala du Port

by earthflyer

Magnificent views across the harbour excellent place to watch the sunset and great photo shots of the boats being repaired.

Side street

by JLBG

As everywhere in Morocco, side streets are the quietest. There is always a lot of shade, which is a blessing when the sun is hot ! At the same time, the design of the town prevents the wind to come in and even when at the Skala, guts of wind are blowing strongly, here, and the air remains calm.
