What to do

If you are feeling active then you could try windsurfing or kite surfing on the endless beach just outside the old city walls, the wind is reliable here and it’s a bit of a hotspot for insiders.
You might fancy galloping across the beach on horseback (horses are brought down to the seafront just for the purpose and a couple of hours’ ride is very cheap) but if all that sounds like too much stress then there’s always time for, well, just relaxing.
Essaouira has pretty much everything that you might want to do or buy in Marrakech but, as we might have mentioned, in a more laid back environment.
