Essaouira in September?

by missbamboo

Hi

Could anyone tell me if September (2nd half of the month) would be a good time to visit? What would the weather be like? Good for beach chilling and water sports?

Is surfing the only activity that can be done here, or is there other stuff? Is there anything to see snorkelling or is the Atlantic too big and cold?!

thanks a lot

The weather should be perfect. In Essaouira, the ocean is never very warm and the wind is nearly always blowing. You seem to know that ! Wind surf, surf and snorkelling are all three possible. Also wind cart (char à voile)
Look both at my page for general tips and at the following for water sports.

Travel Tips for Essaouira

Fish as fee

by JLBG

Don in kind ! It seems that the boatman does not require to be paid for his duty but prefers to get a few fishes. No money handled ! He is really earning is living but the bad thing is that he cannot spare his earnings ! Actually, may be they are so scarce that he would never be able too.

Argan tree

by JLBG

The argan tree is specific from the region of Essaouira. On the biggest trees, goats climb up to the top to eat the leaves and the young fruits. You should see that. It is not shown on this photo, as we have not seen that this time. I will add a picture taken on a previous travel.

Attractions in Essaouira

by khalid_2

The best way to explore Essaouira is perhaps by taking a walk along the fascinating 18th century Portuguese ramparts. The port, built in 1769, is particularly bustling with its beautifully colored fishing boats and nets piled up on the quayside. The Medina becoming a vibrating commercial center offers a magnificent look at both Moroccan and Portuguese architecture from jewelry workshops, woodworking shops to Moorish cafes. The Mellah, the old Jewish quarter bordered by a market stretching to Bab Doukkala is also known for Jewish´ gold and silversmiths. The Ethnological museum features a collection of items portraying ritual life of Essaouira (musical instruments, carpets from different parts of Morocco, wood-carving techniques and motifs etc...). The art galleries such as ´Gallerie d´Art Frederic Damgaard´ and ´Espace Othello Gallerie d´Art´ display magnificent work by local and international painters and sculptors.

Skala Du Port

by suvanki

Skala du Port, is located just off the harbour, easily recognised by its rectangular tower. Skala means Fortress, so is the Fortress of the port as opposed to the nearby Skala du Ville - Fortress of the town!

For 10dh (2007) you can climb the tower (under 12s 3dh school parties 2dh)

Open 08.30 - 12.00 and 14.30 -1800. Not much information available , but a good place to view the fishing boats, harbour, local life to the left (looking seawards), the sea and rocks, plus views towards the Skala du Ville, and the town to the right.

Fixed prices

by JLBG

Amazingly, here, you have not to haggle. The town council establishes the prices. You choose what fish you want to have. They weight it and that is all ! The shops have to be the best (the freshest !) to get the customer.
