4-Day Coastal Expedition: Marrakech to Casablanca via Essaouira and the Atlantic Shoreline

Embark on a captivating journey from Marrakech to Casablanca, a coastal tour that serves as an ideal extension to a larger expedition or as a standalone itinerary for those yearning to discover the enchanting Moroccan coastline north of Agadir.

Day 1: Marrakech to Essaouira

Set forth from Marrakech post-breakfast, immersing yourself in a scenic drive through the Moroccan countryside. Traverse picturesque landscapes, meandering through wild argan tree groves and villages, with glimpses of camels and goats peacefully grazing. Witness the fascinating sight of tree-climbing goats feasting on argan fruits. Pause at a local co-op where Berber women craft argan oil for culinary and cosmetic use.

Upon arrival in Essaouira, formerly known as Mogador, savor lunch at an authentic restaurant offering freshly caught seafood with panoramic views of the sea. Explore the city at your own pace, capturing the essence of the Medina, photographing candy-colored fishing boats, and meandering through an ancient Portuguese fortress.

Day 2: Essaouira – Excursions

Essaouira, a coastal gem, entices with its salty air and the echoing cries of seagulls. A city with a captivating blend of architectural styles from various civilizations, it’s renowned for its appearance in Game of Thrones as the port city of Astapor. Spend the day delving deeper into the Medina’s charm, discovering art galleries, and wandering through stalls offering an array of souvenirs. Stroll along the fishing port, explore food stalls, Portuguese fortifications, and take a leisurely walk along Essaouira beach.

For those seeking a unique experience, consider a visit to a renowned winery for a tasting session featuring reds, whites, and roses crafted from grapes grown in expansive vineyards. Conclude the day with dinner at the riad or explore local dining options.

Day 3: Essaouira to Oualidia to El Jadida

Resume your journey from Marrakech to Casablanca, departing Essaouira after breakfast. Make a pit stop in Oualidia, known for its lagoon and famed oysters, for a delightful break and lunch. Reach El Jadida, the ancient Portuguese city of Mazagan, now a UNESCO World Heritage Site. Explore the medina, visit the Portuguese cistern, and wander outside the city walls or along the beach. Enjoy dinner at the hotel.

Day 4: El Jadida to Casablanca 

On the final day, based on your departure time and interests, depart El Jadida for Casablanca airport for a morning flight. If your schedule allows, consider extending your stay in Casablanca to explore the Hassan II Mosque or the city itself. Adjustments to the itinerary, such as skipping El Jadida and heading straight to Casablanca after lunch in Oualidia or planning an extra day in Casablanca, can be tailored to your preference. Accommodations and dinner in Casablanca will be arranged accordingly.

Thank you for considering this unique coastal expedition from Marrakech to Casablanca. We look forward to crafting an unforgettable experience for you.
