new year's eve

by behappy30

I was wondering about where could I go to spend the next new year's Eve. Could you tell me if it is going to be some party / feast in the streets or beach in Essaouira?

thank you very much!

The best party in town is usually at Taros, you will need to book in advance. Telephone.0547 64 07, I'm not sure but I believe tickets cost around 100 Euro per person.
There are no big street parties, New Year is very low key in Essaouira.
If you find what you are looking for please let me know, we may join you!
Have a good one..

I spent last New Year's in Essaouira and had a BLAST. If you don't have a place to stay yet, the owners of Hostel Essaouira always put on a great party. The place is actually really nice too-- has a rooftop kitchen and sitting area, a tree filled courtyard with hammocks and a fridge filled with beer and liquor that's run on an honor system. Couldn't recommend the place higher. Alternately, Riad Messine II in Marrakech is awesome as well- the other hostels I stayed at in Marrakech were total ***.

Travel Tips for Essaouira

First sight from the Marrakech road


This is first sight of Essaouira you get when you arrive by the road from Marrakech, with the Purpuraire islands in the background. As most tourists have a stop for the sight, there is always a camel waiting here (with his owner !), for a photo !

Good travel books and maps

by matcrazy1

Sun glasses, a hat or something to protect your head against the sun. Sun protection cosmetics of well known companies are available but more expensive than in Europe (Spain), local ones are of lower quality. Films for cameras (Kodak and Fuji) and for movie cameras (Video8, Hi8) available, usually a bit more expensive then in Europe (Spain). Good travel books:
1. Lonely Planet Morocco (I had Polish and French one)
2. Michelin Maroc (I had Guide de Tourisme in French)

1. The Rough Guide to Morocco
2. Fodor's Morocco.

"Chic" and Cheap!

by LuisGuimaraes about Ramses

Located inside the beautiful blue-coloured medina, in one of the small white houses, is this incredibly trendy and though inexpensive restaurant. Owned by Hasan, a young moroccan with an European girlfriend, it has moroccan decoration in the chill-out style, candlelights and fantastic music and environment. Colour ranges between black, red and orange, a magic small world, with very good moroccan cuisine, cooked with elegance and served with class by Hasan himself, who doesn't miss the opportuinty to chat with his clients or sip a glass of moroccan wine with them. Ideal for young independent travellers or trendy and open-minded families.

Nice Story: on our first night in Essaouira, we were lost and without hostel, and Hasam took us with him to his house to spend the night, 5 minutes after we entered his restaurant to ask for help.. we were 9 people on his couches and on the next day, of course, had dinner in his nice restaurant! I only ate there once, but it was a very good "Veal Tagine" (stew)

Sidi Kaouki - surf beach

by Remco_D

About 15 minutes drive from Essaouirra you will find Sidi Kaouki, this is a very windy surf beach.
If you don't have your own surf board you cab rent one from a German who started a surf house over there with a bar a nice terras on the roof and surf boards to rent.

The casbah from the Port Squala


The casbah from the Port Squala. It seems that it is always busy. The white of the houses, the reddish color of the city wall, the dark grey-blue of the see and the dark brown of the algae covered breakers makes a pleasant picture.
