8 Day Marrakech, Essaouira, Taghazout & Mirleft Tour

8 Day Marrakech, Essaouira, Taghazout & Mirleft Tour

Marrakech

This private tour is suited to travellers who wish to tour some of Southern Morocco’s endless Atlantic coastal roads instead of visiting historical and cultural sites. It offers you a toe-dipping experience of the frenetic Imperial city of Marrakech and laid-back port town of Essaouira with visits to spectacular Atlantic beaches.

Description

This is a Non-Desert Inclusive tour and can be customised should you wish to extend your stay. Our ‘Relaxed Southern Beach Roamer’ offers you a tour beyond the Southern town of Tiznit into a Southern region that sees fewer visitors than other regions in Morocco. 

The region is not known for its towns nor historically significant cultural sites but for its endless coastal roads, secluded sandy bays and the iconic rock formations at the Bay Of Legzira, two picture-perfect arches ‘carved’ from the crumbling red rock by the force of surfing waves.

You visit a variety of coastal destinations beginning with the medieval beach and port town of Essaouira with its impressive artistic heritage offering you an insight into where the director Orson Wells filmed Othello and why musicians Mick Jagger & Jimi Hendrix were also attracted to this artisan and musically orientated town, situated close to the coastal village of Taghazout frequented by International and Moroccan surfers alike.

You journey further south to the coastal village of Taghazout frequented by International and Moroccan surfers alike and travel onward following into an area with ruggedly steep coastline, sandy bays and small settlements, river beds lined with fig and Argan trees and the Bay of Legzira, before returning for a little less chill-laxed exploration of the wonderfully exotic Imperial City of Marrakech.

Atmospheric accommodations, a journey focused on less of a ‘hit list’ of places to visit, wide sandy beaches to adventure or relax in and a journey discovering the whispered secrets to those in the know of this chill-laxed region, await you on this considered tour.
