Land and sea sports

The walls of Essaouira feel like a cocoon: wind through the alleys and take a timeless stroll along the parapet. It is an enchanting environment for relaxing and for flexing your muscles. Essaouira is full of sports and activities you have to try.

Head to the beaches, where the Atlantic Ocean serves up wind and waves for your pleasure. See for yourself why Essaouira is a hot spot for surfing, kite-surfing and windsurfing. Perhaps you will rent a land yacht and let the wind carry you across vast stretches of golden sand.

You may also step away from the beach and hop on a bike to explore the city and its surroundings. Work your way through the streets of downtown Essaouira and pedal to the beats of local musicians. Outside the city, your adventure will take an athletic turn on one of the area's many trails that snake through gorgeous landscapes dotted with man-made lakes.

Finally, the Mogador golf course offers a more laid-back recreational opportunity. This 18-hole course is considered to be one of the most exciting in the world.

As you can see, it's impossible to be bored in Essaouira!
