Laid back, charming, and a Mecca for water-sports enthusiasts, the city of Essaouira on Morocco’s Atlantic coast offers a relaxing alternative to the hustle and bustle of Marrakech. This is where French influence infuses with Moroccan life. Buildings designed by the architect behind St Malo in Brittany sit side by side with the UNESCO listed medina, while people relax in pavement cafes sipping their mint tea. The trade winds and strong Atlantic current mean the beaches are always thronging with chilled out surfer dudes, and the singing fresh seafood at the fish market is simply unmissable.
