Transport to airport in Agadir form Essaouira

by perros

We (almost) decided not to go to Agadir at all, and just stay in Essaouira until the last day (Sat 25/09). Our plane leaves at 7pm so we figure we need to be at the airport at around 4-5pm. From what we can see, buses leave at 3am and 2pm only, so it would seem that the first one is way too early, and the second one is too late. Do you guys know how much a taxi to the airport would be? We saw somewhere that the price is around MAD700, is that about right? Any other transport suggestions?

Also, is there somewhere to eat at the airport?

The price from Essaouira to Agadir by private taxi is correct at 700Dh, You can also get shared taxi's that go when full and cost 130Dh per seat.
A taxi from Agadir to the airport costs 200Dh, 2 bus tickets Essa to Agadir cost 190Dh and accommodation in a modest hotel will be 200Dh, So 700Dh for a private taxi is probably a good deal. You might find snacks at the airport,

You only need to be at the airport 1 hour before your flight, it is small & not many planes leave at the same time.
Have a great trip.. If you'd like to meet up for a coffee in Essaouira give me a shout.

Travel Tips for Essaouira

The Fishing Harbour

by iwys

The fishing harbour seems to be the hub of Essaouira's economy. It is a bustling place, full of blue fishing boats, fishermen mending nets, repairing boats, selling their catch etc. It is very picturesque and when I was there some French artists were painting watercolours of the scene.

Olive Oil & Camel power

by JessieLang

We stopped along the road north of Essaouira to visit an olive press. The grinders turn the olives into a mush, which is put in baskets that look like small tires. After the baskets are filled and stacked, they are squeezed in a press to recover the oil.

One grinder was electric, but the other one ran on camel power. A blindfolded camel walked around in circles turning the wheel. There was another facility just across the road, and it looked more modern, but this one was more interesting!

Be bullied into fresh Seafood

by YolandaC about Fish stands down by the docks

Done by the docks are row upon row of fish stands displaying every type of seafood ready to be popped onto the grill. Be ready to be bullied - no that's too strong of a word but not too far off. If not interested just say "later" that seems to work better that a simple "no". If interested pick your spot and your seafood and be ready to sample. grilled shrimp - fresh, fresh. fresh.

Catholic Church

by windcity

Like other historic Moroccan coastal cities, Essaouira has a long tradition of religious cohabitation. With the influx of foreign residents and visitors, the church has experienced something of a revival. Times of service are posted on the door.
During the spring Festival des Alizés, concerts are occasionally held here,

The Medina

by earthflyer

A wondefull place just to wonder around in the morning or afternoon.

You will find many fruit and veg stalls, little cafes, patisseries and sourvenir shops but down some of the quiet alley ways you will find local people work in their little workshops making all sorts of things which i'm sure most of it will end up in the sourvenir shops for us tourists but it is good to see how they are made.
