With beautiful aesthetics overlooking the Atlantic Ocean, tagged as Morocco’s Atlantic coast, the water Sports in Essaouira is one of the best coastline destinations to plan your next gateway, with assurance of having a full dose of the Moroccan culture, while enjoying the waves and refreshing air.

The water Sports in Essaouira is dated back to the 16th century. History has it that Essaouira’s medina is a UNESCO-designated site where you can get lost among art galleries and stalls selling piles of spices and fresh bread.


It has been established that Morocco is a very popular destination for surf camps as they tend to be cheaper than other destinations in Europe, US or Australia. Located in a riad in the medina, Surfari Essaouira offers lessons of surf only or surf and yoga including accommodation and food.

Perhaps, as Morocco’s windy city, Essaouira is the most suitable dwelling to have a first start at kitesurfing.
