Marrakech| Day trip, The Spot Morocco

Approximately 2 hours from Essaouira, Marrakech needs no introduction. A visit to the Djeema el Fna (main square) is a must, particularly at night when the square becomes alive with local food traders and entertainers. Get lost in the medina, and wonder around the may local souks (markets) selling everything from leather wares, Moroccan handicrafts, spices, textiles, food stuffs and more! Don’t miss this Jardin Marjorelle designed by Yves Saint Laurent in the new town.

Agadir | Day trip, The Spot Morocco

Approximately 2.5hours from Essaouira lies the city of Agadir. A visit to the Souk El Had (local market) is a great way to spend a few hours of wondering and haggling. The souk sells everything from leather wares, Moroccan handicrafts, spices, textiles and food stuffs. The more modern Marina, on the beach promenade, provides shops, restaurants, bars, cafes and more as well as a great view of the old kasbah mountain inscription.
